Romelu Lukaku scored in the 3rd and 55th minute

Despite VAR trouble Romelu Lukaku brace takes Manchester United to FA Cup quarters

There have been mixed reactions to the VAR system, which has been used in a handful of League Cup and FA Cup ties.

Romelu Lukaku (in red) fired a brilliant brace for United.

"It's an experimental period, " Mourinho said.

Former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal returned to Yorkshire just months after leaving the Owls. He was offered congratulations after reaching 20 goals for the campaign.

But, with that issue put to bed for the time being, it quickly became apparent that Lukaku's early goal was to be an important one as David Wagner's Huddersfield team responded impressively.

"I believe, though, that such technology should be restricted to a few particular actions that are crucial in the game... and especially that the final decision should take less time and be more clear than last Saturday's". We knew that he waited for the people to see it on TV, to analyse it, but it was a little bit strange because you have to wait two minutes to see what happened, but it's okay.

"In the last couple of matches he did not play well". Billing and Hogg need to stick together and try to find ways to carry the ball into the final third with their passes and vision and also to provide solidity in the centre of the park. Yet when it has been deployed in recent weeks, it has only seemed to bring more confusion to matters, rather than clarity. If you are going to use it you have to make sure you get the decision right.

Both teams will return to the fight against Premier League relegation next weekend, with top-flight the survival for both teams.

"The decision went in our favor but this VAR for me kills the emotion of the game", Wagner said.

The controversy underlines the problem over fans and viewers not being informed about what is happening during the delay while decisions are being reviewed.

The Manchester United striker has endured a mixed campaign since his £75million move from Everton. There was the incident of Willian's yellow card for a 'dive' in Chelsea's FA Cup tie against Norwich.

Also, the club terminated the contracts of chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman on Tuesday.

"My guess is he's suffering a bit because of the level of the Premier League".

"Gareth Barry was OK today but I thought Jonny was very good in the circumstances".

Lowly Rochdale scored deep into stoppage time to deny Tottenham Hotspur victory as their FA Cup fifth-round tie ended in a thrilling 2-2 draw on Sunday.

And so, Mourinho turned his attention towards Sevilla - and back towards Pogba - as he prepared for the first leg tie and the possibility of welcoming back Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia from injury.

Is the technology really up to the job?

"It's a score nobody wants".

Juan Mata scored shortly before the interval but saw his goal controversially ruled out following an intervention from the video assistant referee.

However, shots from VAR showed uneven, wavy lines drawn across the picture, making a mockery of the system.

Sanchez started on the left, setting up one of Romelu Lukaku's two goals.
