In the first nine rounds of Premier League games, this season no penalties were awarded by VAR with a seemingly high bar set for the "clear and obvious error" needed to overturn a referee's decision.
United manager Solskjaer thought the first penalty should not have been given.
"I disagree with the first one, the second one is but both should be retaken, the goalkeeper is a yard off his line," he said.
"VAR is there to help but when it takes ages as the first penalty, it is not a clear and obvious error. When it took that long, it is a signal that it should not have been."
Norwich manager Daniel Farke agreed and thought United's James fouled Godfrey for the first penalty.
"It's quite obvious it was a big mistake," he told BBC Sport. "The referee was right and it was Daniel James falling on the defender. I don't blame VAR for this defeat, we were not major enough in the first half."
