WATCH: Controversial Man United penalty sets English Premier League record

Manchester United were on Thursday awarded a controversial penalty at Aston Villa becoming the first team to earn 13 penalties in a single English Premier League season. 

The controversial call again highlighted the infallibility of the VAR as criticism continue to mount on the video referee's inability to to overturn anything that could be seen as a judgement call. 

Football pundits and analysts were united in agreeing that that was a wrong call and Bruno Fernandes should have been punished inserted. 

Replays showed Bruno Fernandes clattering into an Aston Villa defender, but the ref gave the penalty and United went 1-0 up. Fernandes should have been yellow carded for stepping on the Villa defender’s shin.
