Rio Ferdinand and other Man Utd fans fume at VAR for disallowed goal vs Tottenham

Manchester United fans were left seething after VAR chalked off a brilliant goal in the first-half of their Premier League fixture against Tottenham.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side thought that they had taken the lead ten minutes before half-time after a wonderful link up between Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani.

Pogba fed Cavani with a sumptuous through pass and Cavani fired between Hugo Lloris’ legs to open the scoring.

But after VAR recommended referee Chris Kavanagh to check the pitch side monitor, the goal was disallowed for a foul from Scott McTominay on Heung-min Son in the build-up.

McTominay caught Son in the face while holding off the South Korean forward in an incident that appeared to be completely accidental.

Just five minutes later, Son opened the scoring to put salt in United’s wounds.

The decision to disallow Cavani’s goal has caused outrage across social media, with many supporters furious.

United great Rio Ferdinand was clear in his verdict, tweeting ‘My tv is moments away from being on the patio in 100 pieces #var’.

It was an incredible call that has denied United from a crucial advantage against Jose Mourinho’s side in North London.

Current score: Tottenham 0-1 Manchester United
