Manchester United secured their passage to the Champions League quarter-finals in dramatic style as VAR intervened to give them a late win over Paris Saint-Germain, causing some creative reactions on social media.

The Reds were awarded a penalty after Presnel Kimpembe was judged to have committed a handball in the box after the referee had consulted with his video assistants.

Marcus Rashford then stepped up and lashed the ball home from the spot in the fourth minute of time added on to give United a 3-1 lead on the night, sending them through on away goals.

The penalty rounded off a remarkable comeback from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side after they had taken a 2-0 deficit into the second leg after a disappointing result at Old Trafford.

The result will fuel speculation Solskjaer will be given the permanent job by the Reds, and has already caused excitement among a number of fans given the controversy surrounding the winning goal.
