Video: Luke Shaw and Robbie Brady both avoid straight red cards after long VAR reviews

Manchester United and Burnley have both been involved in lengthy VAR calls in the first-half of their Premier League game at Turf Moor. 

United are level with Sean Dyche’s men at the break and a key talking point came on the half-hour mark when Robbie Brady and Luke Shaw could both have been sent off.

Bruno Fernandes played through Edinson Cavani who was hacked down by ex-United man Brady on the edge of the box with a goalscoring opportunity beckoning.

But in the build-up, Luke Shaw was deemed to have raised his studs in a challenge on Johann Gudmundsson’s shin in United’s half.

Shaw eventually received a yellow card after referee Kevin Friend’s lengthy deliberation with his VAR official.

Just minutes later, Harry Maguire had a header ruled out at the back post for a contentious foul on Eric Pieters.
