Man Utd boss Solskjaer explodes at use of VAR despite Tottenham win – ‘The game is gone’

United ran out 3-1 winners against Tottenham and could now be within 8 points of leaders Manchester City should they win their game in hand.

“We weren’t conned, the referee was.

“That kick-started us. [Before the goal] we had played like a team who had played in Europe on a Thursday night [last time out].

“Top reaction, we played some great stuff second half. We felt the injustice and we showed good character to come back. We can’t let those decisions ruin this good season for us.”
