Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire scored the two goals for Manchester United in this encounter as Chelsea fans expressed their disappointment to the result gotten.
The Blues fans have even changed the name of Var to Varchester United after Manchester United defender Harry Maguire escaped being punished after a foul on Michy Batshuayi.
Harry Maguire who was signed with big money by Manchester United cleared the ball in the 21st minute and accidentally caught the leg of the Belgian football star.
Chelsea players protested heavily telling the referee to check the VAR system for the challenge of Harry Maguire on Michy Batshuayi.
The center man however stopped play to confirm the decision of the VAR system on how Harry Maguire brought down Michy Batshuayi.
But to the surprise of Chelsea fans, the VAR did not see any foul committed by Harry Maguire and that made all the Blues faithfuls livid.
Stamford Bridge fans are of the opinions that Harry Maguire should have been sent off immediately for what he did.
The Blues faithfuls were also angry for the decision of the referee to have cancelled Kurt Zouma's goal early in the second half when the Stamford Bridge crowd had thought they had equalized.
Referee made the use of VAR again to check whether the goal Zouma scored was legit or not, but the center man found out that Cesar Azpilicueta had pushed Williams before the ball went in.
The Blues fans were also angry with the decision and expressed their annoyance on social media claiming that their players faced Varchester United and not the Red Devils.
