14 Apr Manchester United 2-1 West Ham:’With VAR we triumph’ – Pellegrini bemoans shortage of technologies since choices price Hammers
West Ham were unlucky not to claim all 3 points following a”very good performance” against Old Trafford side, based on their supervisor
Manuel Pellegrini believes West Ham could have defeated Manchester United’d VAR been in performance in Old Trafford on Saturday.
United gained by a hat-trick of debatable refereeing decisions on how to a barely deserved 2-1 home success in the Premier League.
Felipe Anderson needed a target wrongly disallowed for offside in the first trades, until Paul Pogba opened the scoring with a penalty following a Robert Snodgrass tackle on Juan Mata which Pellegrini claimed was outside the box.
The Hammers equalised throughout the remarkable Felipe Anderson following half-time however, having looked the more inclined to catch a winner, came undone by means of a second Pogba spot-kick at the 80th moment.
Ryan Fredericks brought down Anthony Martial from behind amid hints that the Red Devils winger strayed past the last defender because he hurried on a throughball.
“It is difficult to say we have not come from here not merely with some stage, but three,” Pellegrini said at a press conference.
“For me personally, it was a joy to find how the team played , against Manchester United at Old Trafford. It was a really great performance and we had been unlucky [not to get a result].
“I do not need to whine about the Army since most of them were quite hard choices.

“[Felipe Anderson’s disallowed goal] has been onside, by only 1 foot, so that is why the error was made. When we’ve got VAR it is a target.
“The next goal they believed was a error from us, but it was likewise offside. [Marcus] Rashford rolls the ball, so it is offside.

“We also made an error for this purpose and I am not whining that we lost due to the referee.
“Both of them were quite hard choices. It wasn’t possible to view, but with VAR we win this match.”
The triumph for Manchester United retained the club over 2 points of their top four, while West Ham sit 11th after the reduction.
