A lot has been said about the penalty incident between Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta and Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire.

Chelsea were denied a penalty in the goalless draw against Manchester United despite Manchester United defender Harry Maguire wrestling Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta in the United box.

VAR’s decision not to review the incident has caused outrage, and even Manchester United legend Patrice Evra agreed that it was a penalty.

Evra likened Maguire’s antics to that of WWE legend Hulk Hogan, saying: “I used to watch wrestling and even Hulk Hogan would do this kind of move.

“This is a clear penalty that’s why VAR, again we can talk all day about that but this is a clear penalty to Chelsea.”

Chelsea and Manchester United ended up playing a drab goalless draw at Old Trafford, but that penalty decision could have changed the context of the game.
