Watch: Man Utd have goal ruled out as Lindelof hits striker with flying knee


Axel Tuanzebe was denied his first Manchester United goal after Victor Lindelof did his best Conor McGregor impression against Real Sociedad. 

United went into the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie with a 4-0 lead and played out a goalless draw at Old Trafford.

Tuanzebe replaced Fred at half-time and thought he’d opened the scoring with a brilliant header from an Alex Telles corner. 

But the goal was immediately checked by VAR and after a review, the referee deemed that it shouldn’t stand due to a foul from Lindelof in the build-up. 

The Sweden international jumped for the ball but his knee flew straight into the face of Jon Bautista, sending the striker crashing to the floor.
