Enraged fans on social media website Twitter have slammed Manchester United defender Harry Maguire for his challenge on Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi during the Red Devils' win at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
The Manchester United defender cleared the ball down the line in the 21st minute as he went tumbling to the floor at Stamford Bridge. However, on his way down, Maguire, accidentally caught Batshuayi out with his leg.
VAR looked into the kick and found that there was no foul play from the 26-year-old United captain. However, after that, fans rushed to Twitter to brand United as 'VARchester.'
Here are some of the reactions to the same....

Antony Martial and Harry Maguire both scored headers either side of half time as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men rode their luck at times to secure all three points.
The Blues were twice victims of marginal calls as substitutes Kurt Zouma and then Olivier Giroud both saw their efforts ruled out in an eventful Premier League clash.
In a first 45 devoid of quality, Aaron Wan Bissaka produced an excellent cross for Martial to divert past Willy Caballero just minutes before the interval.
Zouma thought he had dragged his side back level but Azplicueta was deemed to have fouled Brandon Williams in the build-up and the goal was disallowed.
Man Utd skipper Maguire who was fortunate to still be on the field, having earlier appeared to kick out at Michy Batshuayi, then powered home from a Bruno Fernandes corner.
But the drama wasn't finished there, Giroud thought he had halved the deficit but again VAR came to the visitors' rescue.
