Mata, however, thinks that VAR is good for football.

He returned to the starting XI for United's following match, a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United.

Aside from Saturday's clash, the other 10 games he has featured in, the 23-year-old helped the team keep eight clean sheets and has contributed a goal which came against Swansea City in August.

United were boosted by the return of Eric Bailly, who missed three months with an ankle injury, as a stoppage-time substitute.

Clarification of the aims of VAR is key.

"I believe, though, that such technology should be restricted to a few particular actions that are crucial in the game, in order to avoid too many interruptions, and especially that the final decision should take less time and be more clear than last Saturday's".

That's according to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez.

Huddersfield can count themselves unfortunate on that second Lukaku goal.

Mata then had the ball in the net himself a minute before the break.

"The major criticism levelled at Lukaku is that he is a flat-track bully". It's normal and natural. If a manager doesn't refer a decision, or has used up his referrals, then it's their fault. Brighton defeated Coventry, 3-1, in their FA Cup tie.

"The zig-zaggy lines were a farce and then we were told that's what we saw and then we were told they actually saw the correct lines".

"That doubt is not the best feeling".

But despite the win, and despite the controversy arising from VAR disallowing Juan Mata's goal, the headlines ever since have been all about the player who didn't feature for United. "They have to kill the bad and make it perfect". And we have strong team strong bonding, strong team mentality.

"I think I was hoping more than believing", said Rochdale hero Steven Davies of his last-gasp strike... when they bring on the big guns and Harry Kane scores, I've got to follow suit haven't I?!"

Salomon Rondon pulled a goal back with a spectacular first-time volley with half an hour left but it wasn't enough to save West Brom. VAR' after his goal was questionably ruled out against Huddersfield.

In fact, the system basically had no influence on the game.

There must be much better communication within the stadium.

"Confidence should not be an issue".

With Mata, it was a really close call.

While VAR might correct a few erroneous decisions, ultimately will it be worth what we give up?

"I will think about Paul after the match, not now".
