Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has suggested that he’ll have to take another look at Marcus Rashford’s disallowed goal against Everton.
Man United came from behind to beat the Toffees 2-1 at the Goodison Park on Sunday in the Premier League.
Alex Iwobi opened the scoring but first half goals from Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo turned things around in favour of the Red Devils.
The home side were pressing to get the equaliser in the second half when Marcus Rashford won Iwobi in an aerial challenge inside Everton‘s half, beat Tarkowski and Jordan Pickford before he scored an empty net to keep United’s lead safe.
But after a VAR review, what was supposed to be Rashford’s sixth goal of the season was ruled out for a handball he committed when he beat Tarkowski and his celebration was cut short.
Erik ten Hag has said he couldn’t see any reason why Rashford‘s goal was disallowed but he’s happy his side held on to Ronaldo’s first half match winning goal.
“When I see it, I can’t see [why] they cancelled the goal,” Ten Hag told beIN Sports about Rashford’s disallowed goal. “It doesn’t have an effect on the result, if it had then I would stand here different!”
Anthony Martial was forced off early in the game due to an injury and was replaced by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Erik ten Hag had confirmed that Martial’s injury doesn’t have anything to do with his feet but rather a knock on his back.
“I have to see,” Ten Hag said when asked about Martial’s injury update. “I cannot tell what it is or how serious it is. I need to wait 24 hours.”
