Two Romelu Lukaku’s double were enough for Manchester United to secure a 2-0 win against Huddersfield on Saturday in a match marred by a questionable VAR (Video Assistant Referee) going against United.

Juan Mata thought he had put United into a 2-0 lead just before half-time only for the Spaniard's effort to be ruled out by the video referee after a lengthy delay, and without conclusive proof, the officials on the field had made the wrong decision.

Thankfully for United, and the authorities, that decision didn't have a definitive influence on the outcome as Lukaku struck early in both halves to take his tally for the season to 21.
