Dale Johnson clarified that the decision to award Marcus Rashford a lead-doubling goal before half-time was correct.
The ESPN editor noted that the inclusion of tolerance levels meant that some leeway was given in favour of the attacker despite it appearing to be a close call for the VAR operators at Stockley Park.
Regardless, it has to be emphasised that Liverpool did very little to deserve anything from the visit to Old Trafford, delivering a lacklustre performance that will have the coaching staff asking serious questions behind the scenes.
You can catch the tweet and image below, courtesy of @DaleJohnsonESPN:
Marcus Rashford was onside for Manchester United's second goal due to the tolerance level which was added to VAR offside last summer.
Would have been offside in 2020-21.
When a player is onside due to tolerance level one green line is shown, drawn to the defender.
