Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg believes referee Jon Moss was wrong to award Manchester United a penalty for Idrissa Gueye’s tackle on Anthony Martial.

According to Clattenburg, Martial exaggerated his movement to make it look like a foul.

“That was not a penalty,” Clattenburg told Daily Mail.

“Idrissa Gana Gueye clearly got a touch on the ball and you could see it change direction.

“After the Everton midfielder won the ball, Anthony Martial exaggerated his movement to make it look like a penalty.

“With his assistant on the far side unable to help him, referee Jon Moss would have wanted to get a better angle to assess the challenge.”
