Marcus Rashford was left fuming after his attempt to make history with Manchester United was unafforded by VAR in their FA Cup win over Reading on Saturday.
The 25-year-old had the chance to become United’s first player ever to score 10 consecutive home matches, but his goal was ruled out after VAR decided Wout Wegthorst had been offside in the buildup, despite Casemiro’s pass being deflected into his path by a defender.
Taking to Twitter afterwards, Rashford said: “Unfortunately, VAR got the better of me again today… Breaking the record for consecutive goals at OT would have been incredible, but I’m proud to have equalled Dennis Viollet’s record.”
While he missed out on making history this time around, Rashford remains in dazzling form overall having scored 18 times in 30 appearances this season – 12 more than second-top scorer Bruno Ferndandes.
Meanwhile, two goals from Casimero provided the foundation Man United needed for victory and Fred put the icing on the cake with a cool near-post flick.
