Ermmm... if the VaR rule the manC goal as no offside (is it a goal?)
I see DDG stopped playing after the line up flag up for offside and the referee whistle le
That's why VAR implementation is a mess right now. They wouldn't dare to say there's no offside in yesterday's incident - can imagine the backlash. But it's something waiting to happen.

Pogba considers Man Utd U-turn as duo proof of ambition

Paul Pogba is reportedly considering remaining at Manchester United beyond the summer after two players were cited as proof of the club’s ambition in the transfer market.

Pogba, who moved back to United from Juventus in 2016, has become a divisive figure at Old Trafford after largely failing to display the talent he showed in Italy.

Indeed, the Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move away in recent months, with Juve said to be keen on bringing him back to Turin and Real Madrid also credited with interest.

And despite reports this week that Juventus had already agreed personal terms with the player and were ready to hold talks with United over a fee, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has continually insisted that Pogba remains a key part of his squad.

And now The Sun claim Pogba himself is warming to the idea of staying at Old Trafford, having been impressed with their upturn in fortunes in recent weeks and for the ambition the club has shown in the transfer market.

Currently sat fifth in the Premier League and just three points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea, United are also through to the last 16 of the Europa League where they will face Austrian side LASK and on Thursday night beat Derby to make it through to the FA Cup quarter-finals.

However, as per the report, it is the signing of one player, in Bruno Fernandes, and the potential arrival of another, in Jadon Sancho, which has most convinced Pogba of United’s ambition and brought about the potential U-turn.

It’s claimed Pogba has been hugely impressed with the impact Fernandes has made since arriving from Sporting Lisbon; the Portuguese star scoring three times in his last three games.

Pogba, it’s claimed, is excited by the prospect of playing alongside the £68million man.

In addition, Pogba is also said to be enthused by the club’s efforts to bring in England winger Sancho, with the Frenchman believed to be a massive admirer of his talents.

Sancho is likely to fetch well in excess of £100m this summer after a breathtaking spell in Germany with Borussia Dortmund and amid claims that the player ‘loves the idea of playing for United’.

Furthermore, the 26-year-old Frenchman – as per Tuttosport – is not 100% convinced that leaving Old Trafford would be the best thing for his career right now and would be tempted to stay.

However, Pogba will have 12 months remaining on his existing deal this summer and it’s thought he would need to sign an extension were he declare his intention to stay however, and for United not to actively seek a buyer for the midfielder.

And the Italian paper suggests Pogba signing a new deal at Old Trafford cannot be discounted at this stage amid claims he is ready to perform that U-turn and decide to stay.

He may decide to stay.

Dean Henderson should be Manchester United's easiest transfer decision

The young Man Utd goalkeeper is thriving on loan at Sheffield United while it has been a mixed season for Spain's David de Gea for Solskjaer's side.

Dean Henderson ought to be named in the Premier League team of the year. He is in contention to win the golden glove, the award for most clean sheets. He will almost certainly be part of England's Euro 2020 squad and should really be his country's No.1 on form.

These aren't extravagant one-eyed statements made because Henderson is contracted to Manchester United. They are reasoned arguments based on his tremendous performances for Sheffield United this season, which rank him among the league's best. Whisper it, even better than David de Gea. His outrageous triple save in the dying moments of the Blades' 1-0 win over Norwich on Saturday was breathtaking.

Which brings us nicely onto the decision that some are describing as a transfer dilemma for United in the summer. A line in a recent report linking Chelsea with a swoop for Henderson this summer said of the young keeper: "whether he is wanted back at Old Trafford by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season remains to be seen".

That doesn't quite tally up with Solskjaer's previous comments about the 22-year-old, though. The Norwegian stated earlier this season that he expects Henderson to "come back one day and have a good career at Man United" — although he's never said definitively whether De Gea or Henderson will be next season's first choice.

In fact, more recently after a De Gea error — that cost United a goal against Everton in their recent 1-1 draw — Solskjaer continued to leave journalists in the dark over the issue.

"We want the best possible squad for Man United and Dean's our player," Solskjaer said. "He's doing really well at the moment. And the day he comes back he's obviously fighting to play here as well.

"David's the best goalkeeper in the world, Dean is a very good challenger and then Sergio [Romero]'s a decent challenger as well."

Surely United's decision, then, is easy: keep both Henderson and De Gea and, as Solskjaer says, allow them to challenge each other for the jersey.

De Gea doesn't have a divine right to be United's No.1, especially when you consider his up and down form in the past 18 months. If he would rather leave the club than battle Henderson, United will be able to net a hefty fee for an elite goalkeeper who is still only 29.

What United cannot afford to do, is allow Henderson another year out on loan or worse a permanent exit. Talk of a move to Chelsea or Tottenham would be utter madness. The Whitehaven-born United youth product is ready for the first team, if his performances for the brilliant Blades this season are an accurate indicator — which they ought to be, considering the forwards he's facing.

Henderson has recorded 10 clean sheets this season, with only Burnley's Nick Pope (11) on a better figure. If he wins the golden glove, he'd be the first goalkeeper outside of United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool to ever earn the award in its 15-year history. De Gea has only managed it once. Edwin van der Sar only did it once.

It's clear that United have an absolute gem on their hands.

The summer transfer window will bring its usual host of decisions, dilemmas and difficulties for United. Dean Henderson's future should not be among them.

It's a no-brainer for Solskjaer, Ed Woodward and the United decision-makers. They have a ready-made superstar from their academy with a proven track record of performing in the Premier League. It's transfer utopia, though maybe not for De Gea.

I think he will be useful backup, more deadly than James. But too exp to keep. Bruno will be able to release him. Sanchez style is a mismatch with those at United when he was signed.

I thought it was a pretty complete performance yesterday night.

Literally every player on the team contributed to the 2-0 win.

Still room for improvement, james could have squared the ball a few times and it seems Williams was being targetted in the later half of the game. Maguire passes were quite wayward at times, but he didn't train during the week
