Chris Wilder: Sheffield United manager signs new deal until 2024

But Chris Wilder's side, enjoying a remarkably successful first season back in the top-flight, are now just four points behind Chelsea in fourth.

There was little Rice could do to prevent the ball from hitting his arm up close, but the law states that any goal scored or scored by hand or arm will be stripped, even if it is accidentally happened. The VAR checks it and it's a real kick in the teeth.

It was a first loss for West Ham since David Moyes returned for a second stint in charge after Manuel Pellegrini was sacked on December 28 following defeat by Leicester City and he was given his first taste of VAR disappointment.

Sebastien Haller had a goal ruled out for offside and bounced a header over while Manuel Lanzini's free kick was well-saved by Dean Henderson who has now kept eight clean sheets this season, the joint most in the Premier League. Obviously sometimes it works but you see there, they're celebrating VAR like it's a goal.

The Hammers almost equalised but Haller's goal have been ruled out for offside.

But this was a frustrating evening for Moyes, who was beaten for the first time after winning the opening two matches of his second spell with the club.

It was a painful night all round for Moyes, who saw keeper Lukasz Fabianski suffer a hip injury before his replacement David Martin combined with team-mate Fabian Balbuena to make the error that led to McBurnie's victor.

David Moyes' team suffered a 1-0 away loss at Bramall Lane in the Premier League fixture and it means they stay just two points above the relation places.

Prince Abdullah added: "Chris has played an integral role in our recent and current success and we want him at the helm in the future, driving us forward, hence the new long-term contract".

"Whoever checked it I think got it wrong because it was a really good bit of play by Declan Rice - where would you put your hands, tie them behind your back?" "It doesn't change my view". I wouldn't say I'm a great fan [of VAR] but we're having to come to terms with it. People who have played football know when it's not right and tonight is one of those situations. It was a rare moment of VAR relief for Sheffield United, who have been on the wrong end of several decisions this season.

Wilder said, "I think second half we better then the first, we livened ourselves up".

"I feel for David [Moyes] and the players". It's the same moan and groans as we've had in the past.

"I don't think we're all too happy with it to be honest, but it's in the game now and we've just got to get on with it".
