Manchester United overcome VAR controversy to knock out Huddersfield

Manchester United overcome VAR controversy to knock out Huddersfield

Paul was going to play on the left side in a 4-3-3.

In fact, within moments, they should have been level as Phil Billing found Tom Ince behind the United back-line and the midfielder sent a low-cross shot inches beyond the far post.

Former Ireland and Reading footballer Stephen Hunt used his column in today's Sunday Independent to confound a perception of Manchester United's play that has been under some scrutiny lately.

This is a lot more of the same, and it seems that, whoever the sources are, they're trying to calm things down.

"United were always our great rivals when I was at City, and we played some really important games against them".

"A few clubs in Scotland wanted me but as soon as I knew Man United were interested there was only one place I was going".

"They had no central midfield players, really".

Next up is a trip to Sevilla on Wednesday for a Champions League round-of-16 first leg against the team now sitting fifth in La Liga.

Mata played a fine throughball to Lukaku, who charged into the penalty area before cutting back on his right foot and firing low past the wrong-footed goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

The victor of the replay will host Rochdale or Tottenham Hotspur, who play on Sunday.

United, who were without the ill Paul Pogba or goalkeeper David de Gea, took the lead three minutes in when Mata's pass was finished in style by Lukaku.

According to The Sun's Neil Custis, Los Blancos are planning to make move for Paul Pogba this offseason.

Pogba, who rejoined United from Juventus for 89.3 million ($123.5 million, 100.5 million euros) in August 2016, has struggled for form in recent weeks and Mourinho has substituted the 24-year-old in two of the Red Devils' last three matches. I think it's needed, specifically when there is a clear decision that can change the game, like a goal, offside, red card, but hopefully it will be quicker.

The French star has been inconsistent throughout the 2017-18 season after he initially made a brisk start to the Premier League campaign with two goals and two assists in his opening four top-flight appearances.

However, Huddersfield who are 17th in the EPL table gave a good account of themselves disallowing the strong Manchester club control possession in the first half. Of course, we need balance in the team.

Filip has adopted Nemanja's new team since his father's £40million move from Chelsea in the summer and is now training with United's academy side. Other reports said the arrival of Alexis Sanchez has also unsettled the Frenchman. I felt I needed to make a little bit of a statement about the events.
