But some Villa fans have suggested Hojlund’s goal should not have stood – because Casemiro was offside in the build-up.

The United midfielder was stood in an offside position when Luke Shaw crossed his free-kick into the box.

Casemiro jumped and competed for the ball but did not touch it – in fact he was no way near it.

A Villa defender headed the ball behind for a corner which ended up with Hojlund firing in from Harry Maguire’s knock down.

But since the goal came from a new phase of play, VAR was unable to look at the free-kick and whether Casemiro had interfered with the Villa defender.

That enraged some Villa supporters as they claimed they were hard done by.

One fan reacted saying: “Casemiro is offside for the play leading to the corner. United score from the corner.

“No VAR check. What’s the point of having it?”

Another added: “To really put the icing on the cake, Casemiro was offside from the free-kick which led to the corner 🤦🏻‍♂️ I hate football on days like today.

“Really didn’t do a fat lot wrong and end up on the defeated side. And it’s always against them too. Irritating

A third wrote: “There we go Casemiro offside from freekick – lino and ref miss that and give a corner. They score from it, useless.🙄”

And another commented: “That United goal was crazy. Softest free-kick of the season which then led to Casemiro being offside when they forced a corner in which they scored.

“Referees so scared to make the right decisions, getting too complacent with VAR.”
