Has there been a case yet when VAR was proven to have made the wrong decision ? I am struggling to think of any.

VAR has been proven - despite its flaws - to do what it is meant to do ... reduce the number of refereeing mistakes in a game.

Definitely the Mata goal.

Itís not just the decisions. Itís the utter farce on how they get to a decision. BT/Sky have better technology and can show you the decision quicker than VAR, itís pathetic.

The Mata one should not have been referred to VAR in the first instance - a clear and obvious mistake it clearly and obviously was not.

United v Arsenal, such a classic rivalry during the PL years...today a pale insiped shadow of what it used to be! United 1-0 up but really don't seem that bothered...s'pose it's a little bit of a nothing game. Nice to see the respect between Fergie and Wenger, 2 legends of the game...never happen again. ��

Air of a dead rubber. Arsenal are clearly focused on the Europa League, and Utd are in their comfort zone in the league. Absolutely nothing riding on this match.

Apparently we've never lost at OT when leading at half time...1-1...is another record about to go?!

Good result but tame performance.

We've beaten all the teams in the top 6 since Christmas. A definite improvement over last season, but still feels a little underwhelming because we never really look like we want to go and flatten a team. Still, we're well placed and Mourinho could still end with a trophy.

We never seem motivated until the other team puts some pressure on, today it was equalising, a lot of the time itís going behind.

Having said that, we canít take anything from this match, it was like a testimonial. Hopefully this season is a good building block to a challenge next year.

Fellaini comes good again, will they resign him?

Can't believe I'm still watching this garbage...worst performance yet! I know it's a pretty nothing game for us but that's no excuse. Maureen wants 2nd place but really it shows how bad the PL is that this bag of crap is the second best team...shocking!

Pogba can **** off in the summer, useless big time charlie...and Rashford surely has to leave if he's ever to fulfil his potential...painful times ahead ��

I'd have thought Rashford was bound to leave at some point, probably when he realises they're always going to buy in a "better" player above him. Probably make a decent impact at Swansea and you'll look to buy him back.

Can't believe MICON has nothing to say on last nights result

What more is there to add, to what I said 6 months ago, everything I said has come (& still is true).

By the way I am in Spain loving the great weather.

End of season game - players turned off. I didnít even bother watching the match, and clearly there are no highlights! Fergie lost plenty of games like this at the end of the season. Canít remember which year, but we won the league by at a canter and once won, lost the last three games (from memory, but fact checked this).

Spurs and Liverpool have also had some dodgy results in the league the past couple of weeks - modern players.

Thereís only one match left that matters, and clearly the players feel that way too. Shame some of the squad players didnít take a chance, but we all know the likes of Darmian, & Fellaini and rubbish.

Sir Alex seriously ill in hospital - a statement from the club saying he underwent surgery today for a brain haemorrhage. The surgery went well, but he is in intensive care
