The Chelsea boss highlighted the number of calls that have gone in United's favour and Solskjaer has clapped back ahead of the FA Cup semi-final

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hit back at claims Manchester United have been lucky this season with the number of VAR decisions that have gone in their favour.

Seven goals that had originally awarded against United have been overturned, the joint highest in the division, and it has led to claims referees are favouring Solskjaer’s side.

Frank Lampard admitted he has concerns that United are getting a run of VAR decisions ahead of the FA Cup semi-final clash at Wembley on Sunday, but Solskjaer refuted any suggestion his side were being favoured and named three examples of decisions which could have cost them.

“I can sit here for hours now and try to talk about this.” Solskjaer said. “It looks like there's a narrative, it looks like people want to influence whoever's making the decisions. I hear people talking about luck, that we've been lucky more than unlucky.

“If you look at the factual decisions, I don't want to sound like a certain manager talking about facts, but if you're offside, you're offside. That's clear. Talking about lucky, the penalty we got against Tottenham in the last minute that was taken away from us, that might be two points for us.

“Talking about the red card Romeu should have had against us when he almost got Mason Greenwood crippled, that should've been a red card, maybe that would've helped us.

“Talking about Mark Noble when he should have been sent off against us when we lost at West Ham, talking about the actual decision that is made that is against Man Utd but is overturned and corrected.

“So it's actually me that should be complaining that we get decisions against us on the pitch by the on-pitch referee.”

The United manager admitted he also wasn’t concerned that Mike Dean and Michael Oliver, referee and VAR controller on Sunday, repsectively, could be influenced by the comments made about his side this week.

“There's a narrative there but we have to focus on our games. We let other people talk about that, I don't want to go too much into it because I might be in trouble,” Solskjaer said.

“I hope I'm not now! I'm pretty relaxed on these and refs are going to be making objective decisions and are not going to be influenced by any emotion in any way, so I don't think they'll read [what Lampard said].”

Solskjaer confirmed Luke Shaw is set to miss the Wembley clash with an ankle injury he picked up in the 2-2 draw against Southampton, while Brandon Williams could return after missing the win against Crystal Palace with an eye injury.

If VAR favours you, you will say it is good. If it does not favour you, you will say it is bad. As for me, I like the new thrill VAR adds to football.

Hopefully, covid 19 will go with its wahala and let football fans enjoy this beautiful game

Who doesn't know that yet?

Ferguson made sure of them ALWAYS getting that type of favors before he left the center stage.

Before the era of VAR if you recall, they had all the EPL referees in their pocket.

So no be today!

I was expecting him to explain what happened on Thursday, but he dodged it. My hatred for VAR U. stems from their always depending on corrupt officials to garner points, while others work their socks out to get points of their own.

Lampard should sha not worry. Ole is planning to come and pack the bus and hit on the counter again, waiting for ref or VAR to do the rest, his plans has failed. Lampard just showed us how he is no longer as naive as then. Tomorrow, Chelsea will so flog them that the shock will make them miss out on top 4. They have stolen so much that they even signed a coach named OLE

United have players that run around in the box trying to find space so it's not surprising that they get more tackles and also more penalties.

Aside from the Bruno incident people are really imagining things.

Man U is EFA pikin that is always pampered.

Hardly depend on themselves but will wait for the whistle.

On a more serious note, his statements confirms wrong decisions of VAR and that calls for serious concern.
Its obvious England taught Nigeria corruption and will always promote corruption in Nigeria.
Shame

Looks like Lampard needs all the help he can get. Using emotions to get favorable officiating won't work.

Even as a lifelong Man United fan I'd agree with fact that VAR have turned out to be a big fail, but pushing a narrative of a conscious bias is simply petty.
