Manchester United caretaker boss Michael Carrick revealed after the 1-1 draw against Chelsea that the referee was wrong to award Chelsea a penalty.

The Blues were awarded a penalty with Manchester United leading 1-0 after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Chelsea defender Thiago Silva in the box.

Speaking after the game, Carrick said: “I’m disappointed actually. When you are in front in a game like this to have it taken away is disappointing.

“I’m proud of the players and the group all week. An a difficult situation we tried to make the best of it. But there is that little bitter feeling. We came to win the game. A little disappointed, I can’t lie.

“I don’t think it was a penalty at all. They have had a lot of shots, David had two saves which we knew before the game he would have to make one or two. Other than that I have felt quite comfortable in the game.

“Of course we want to be better. I am not getting carried away but I thought we defended well. I cannot fault the boys one bit.”
