Every word Frank Lampard just said on Man United loss, VAR, Batshuayi, Kante and Maguire

Decisions went against you. VAR?

“Decisions like that are crucial. Maguire should have got a red and then scores the second goal. I think that is a major part what VAR was brought in for. The second viewing, different angles.
