Two Man Utd legends question referee for not awarding Chelsea a penalty against Man Utd

Chelsea should have been awarded a penalty against Manchester United after United captain Harry Maguire wrestled Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta to the ground.

Two Manchester United legends Patrice Evra and Gary Neville have questioned the referee’s decision to deny Chelsea a penalty.

Evra said: “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.”

Neville added: “Azipilicueta just gets in between Lindelof and Maguire and, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says it looks like he’s strangling Azpilicueta, and I think it is.

“It’s more resting on him rather than pulling him back. Azpiliceuta will feel aggrieved it’s more of a penalty than the one at the other end.”
