Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has hit out at the VAR after his side suffered a home defeat to Aston Villa.

Kortney Hause's late header ended United's unbeaten start to the new season, handing Villa their first Old Trafford win since December 2009.

Bruno Fernandes missed a chance to level up moments later with a penalty as United sunk to their second consecutive home defeat and third defeat of the season.

Speaking during the post-match interview, Solskjaer accused the VAR of allowing an alleged offside goal stand.

"Decision making on VAR cost us again, unfortunately," he told MUTV at full-time.

"The goal is offside, as Hause heads it Watkins is actually touching David (De Gea) so he is impeding with him. I can't see the consistency anywhere with the VAR and the decision-making.

"They came out in the corridor and I asked them for an explanation. The linesman he flagged it up with the VAR and definitely the VAR has gone wrong again."
