An Ex-English Football Player claims Man Utd winner vs West Ham should have been disallowed

Alan Shearer claims Man Utd winner vs West Ham should have been disallowed

Published

on

Alan Shearer believes that from the still images provided, Manchester United’s last gasp winner vs West Ham should have been disallowed for offside.

Marcus Rashford broke Hammers’ hearts in the third minute of injury time, tapping home an Edinson Cavani centre.

Cavani was freed by an Anthony Martial through ball, with replays showing he was only very marginally onside.

The goal was subsequently awarded, helping the Red Devils to leapfrog David Moyes’s side and move into the Premier League ’s top four in the process.

Rashford’s winner sparked controversy across social media with many debating whether the veteran Uruguayan striker had strayed beyond the line of last defender.

And Shearer, who was covering the game live felt that the VAR could have come to a different conclusion and in doing so, saved West Ham a point.

“All four of us in the office thought it was going to be given offside. In the image we saw that was frozen, Edinson Cavani looked offside,” Shearer told BBC Radio 5 Live. “It will be tough to take for West Ham when you have worked so hard and fought so hard like they did. To lose it in that fashion, it is hard to take.”

The goal saw all three players Ralf Rangnick brought on as substitutes link up, displaying the strength in depth they still possess.

Shearer added: “It’s not the first and it won’t be the last time that Manchester United will do that. They have done it so many times before.

They have obviously got quality in forward positions so the guys they bring on will make a difference.”

Rangnick has now picked up 17 points from a possible 24 since being named interim boss and praised his team’s resilience having swiftly recovered from their midweek exertions.

“If you score in the last second of the game that is the best type of win, a clean sheet. I think in the end we deserved to win,” the German said.

“It takes patience to play West Ham. A few moments at the end I wished we would have passed the ball instead of shooting from wherever.

“Bearing in mind we played a few days ago against Brentford, the team looked physically good.

“We knew it would take patience, the way we played defensively, won balls back, I was really happy with that.

“I am very pleased the three subs prepared the goal and scored the goal. All were involved. That makes it even more important.

“I would love to have those two points from Villa Park, but with 17 points now we are pleased.”

Ronaldo Plans To Leave Manchester United After Drawn With Southampton

I’m not young again – Ronaldo set to dump Man Utd for second time

Published

By

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has told his friends he is “feeling his age” and could cut short his return to Old Trafford, the UK Sun reports.

The 37-year-old, who has not netted in his last five games, is on course to have his least productive season.

Although Ronaldo is United’s top scorer with eight Premier League goals, he only has half as many as Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

He has also come under fire for his lack of pressing and mobility.

As well as United looking to bring in a young striker, Ronaldo himself is having increasing doubts over his ability to keep on performing for United.

The Portugal captain has told friends he is feeling the pace of the football in England and his age may finally be catching up with him, although he would never admit it in public.

Ronaldo is even considering cutting short his United comeback and leaving in the summer if his own situation – and that of the team – does not change dramatically.

Middlesbrough Defeated Man United In Penalties Shootout

Roy Keane reveals what Middlesbrough’s win would do to Man United

Published

on

By

Manchester United legend, Roy Keane believes the club’s FA Cup fourth-round defeat to Middlesbrough on Friday will affect the Red Devils’ next fixtures.

Keane said he expected the former Premier League title holders to defeat the Championship side after putting up a fantastic performance in the first half.

Championship side Boro recorded a surprising win in the FA fourth round progressing to the fifth round on an 8-7 penalty shoot-out victory.

Jadon Sancho put United into a deserved lead and Matt Crooks levelled for the visitors in the second half with the game headed into extra time and penalty shootout.

“You have to be critical of Manchester United. The first half, they were fantastic, but they are playing a Championship team at home in the cup,” Keane told ITV.

“Obviously, it’s not good enough. Defeat changes the mood. It changes the mood in the ground as well.

“The fans would have been thinking they would win tonight and, being at home, I fully expected them to beat a Championship team.

“But now, it just adds more and more pressure to the upcoming games.”

By

Arsenal striker, Alexandre Lacazette, has broken his silence on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s move to Barcelona.

Aubameyang signed for the Gunners only six months after Lacazette arrived at the club.

The two strikers developed a strong understanding both on and off the pitch.

This week however, Aubameyang saw his contract terminated at Arsenal and has now signed for Barca.

My bro!! Thanks for the last 4 years, my experience in Arsenal would have been different without you.

“Wish you good luck in your next chapter! See you soon,” Lacazette tweeted.

It is believed that Lacazette himself has rejected a contract extension at the club and is set to return to Lyon in the summer.
