The recent match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United saw tempers flair at the final whistle as the two managers had some strong words.
Although the Red Devils would go on to win the game comprehensively 3-1, the goal scored by Edinson Cavani that was ruled out after a VAR check was one of the main talking points of the game.
Cavani would have thought he had opened the scoring for United in the first half – as would many of those who had been watching the contest live – however, it seemed the referees had a different view of the events that had initially transpired.
As Scott McTominay was looking to shield the ball and fend Heung-min Son off, the Scotland international caught the South Korean in the face, which led to the Spurs player going down in pain and clutching his face.

Although it looked like nothing more than an accident, the officials deemed it to be an infringement and ruled the goal out. Son would go on and score Tottenham’s goal minutes later, but it was all in vain.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was livid with the decision and made his feelings known as he did not mince his words, although Son may not have been able to taste them if the Norweigan had his ways as he claimed the attacker would not get any food if he were his son. Strange thing to say, we know.
Jose Mourinho took exception and even claimed that Paul Pogba should have seen red for an elbow he made on Serge Aurier that was subsequently missed.
However, there has been a video of a 2003 Premier League clash between Manchester United and Arsenal at Highbury that features the current United boss.
The game, which would finish 2-2, finished with The Gunners having 10 men on the pitch after Sol Campbell was shown a red card by referee Mark Halsey after elbowing Solskjaer in the face when defending the ball.
Nigel Miller, who was the assistant linesman on that said claimed Campbell had deliberately elbowed the forward and the former England international received a four-game ban that would see him miss that year’s FA Cup Final.
Of course, we can only imagine it hurt as getting an elbow to the face is never nice, but with the way the Norwegian has been speaking almost 20 years later, perhaps he had forgotten that had happened to him, as well?
