Watch: The Bizarre Reason This Goal Manchester United Conceded Was Not Offside

Manchester United went 1-0 down tonight against CSKA Moscow thanks to a controversial Alan Dzagoev goal. Manchester United players and fans were furious that the goal was allowed given the apparent off-side position of the goalscorer.

Manchester United supporters were not happy about the decision.

However, it appears under UEFA's rules the decision was actually the correct one.

Regardless, Manchester United were able to overcome the goal anyway, grabbing two quick second-half goals to turn the tie on its head.
