Hawkeye issue an apology for the confusion caused during a VAR review that saw Juan Mata have a goal ruled out in Manchester United's FA Cup tie at Huddersfield Town.

Hawkeye have apologised for the confusion caused during a VAR review that saw Manchester United's Juan Mata have a goal ruled out for offside in the FA Cup.

The Spaniard was denied the goal during his side's 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in Saturday's fifth-round tie at the John Smith's Stadium.

Mata's strike on the stroke of half time was chalked off after officials determined, with the help of VAR, that he was offside.

However, a still image of the offside call which appeared on BT Sport showed wobbly lines being used to determine if Mata was beyond the last defender, prompting confusion and derision by fans and pundits.

To address the issue, Hawkeye issued a statement on Sunday which read: "A technical error led to an incorrect graphic being provided by Hawkeye to BT Sport on Saturday.

"To confirm, the VAR saw the correct image with the correct lines to make the decision. This was a case of the wrong image being provided to the broadcaster and we apologise."

Romelu Lukaku scored in each half for United to secure a quarter-final tie against Brighton & Hove Albion.
