VAR Decision Was Right, Everton Were Just Unfortunate - Roy Keane

Former Manchester United star, Roy Keane, has given his verdict on the late VAR decision which overturned a potential winner for Everton.

”I think he was in-line with the ball and I don't think De Gea would have saved it.

"If it was allowed I think we would have had Ole on the pitch speaking to the referee.

"Sigurðsson should have gotten out of the way and I can see why Everton are disappointed but I do think they got the right decision," Roy Keane said.

Manchester United were able to pick up a controversial point at the Goodison Park, home turf of the Everton football club. The red devils under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came back from behind to draw 1-1.

Everton striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, gave his side the lead in the third minute of the game when he deflected a clearance from Manchester United goalie David de Gea into an empty net.

Manchester United winter signing, Bruno Fernandes, who has been on a red hot form, equalized before the first half ended. However, Calvert-Lewin once again gave Everton the lead in injury time but his goal was controversially ruled out by VAR for an offside.

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decision was influenced by the Everton midfielder, Gylfi Sigurðsson, who was lying in an offside position on the floor. The goal was ruled out by VAR as Sigurðsson seemed to have impacted the play following the deflection off Harry Maguire which sent the ball into the net.
