Bournemouth denied penalty VAR Manchester United escape draw

VAR controversy as Bournemouth's late penalty overturned in 2-2 draw with Manchester United, saved by Bruno Fernandes' brace.

In a thrilling match at Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth and Manchester United battled to a 2-2 draw, with VAR controversy playing a significant role in the outcome. Referee Tony Harrington initially awarded a penalty to Bournemouth in added time after Ryan Christie was fouled by Willy Kambwala, only to overturn the decision after a review showed the foul occurred outside the box.

Despite the VAR drama, Manchester United struggled to find their rhythm throughout the match, falling behind twice to goals from Dominic Solanke and Justin Kluivert. Bruno Fernandes came to the rescue for United, scoring two crucial goals to salvage a point for his team. His first goal came against the run of play, while his second was a converted penalty after a handball by Adam Smith.

Bournemouth put in an outstanding performance, hitting the woodwork and creating numerous chances that could have seen them secure a victory. United, on the other hand, continue to struggle in the league, sitting seventh and facing uncertainty in European qualification for the next season.

The match was a rollercoaster of emotions, with both teams fighting hard for the win. Ultimately, the draw leaves both sides with mixed feelings as they look ahead to their next challenges.
