Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, would have been denied a hat-trick against Leeds United on Saturday, if last season’s VAR rules were still active.

Against Marcelo Bielsa’s men, Fernandes opened scoring in the 30th minute.

The Portugal international added two more in the second half.

His third goal was subjected to a VAR check, though.

The Premier League amended its rules after the 2020/2021 season, which saw frustrating decisions including kneecaps, toes and armpits called offside.

A one millimetre line was used to catch players last season, however the threshold has been increased to five centimetres this term.

That’s just what Fernandes did on Saturday, with the Premier League confirming the old protocols would have seen the midfielder drive home without the match-ball.

There were twenty goals that would be upheld in 2021-22 but were denied last season in controversial decisions.
