Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has ruled that Manchester United should have been given a penalty in our game against Chelsea on Sunday.
Replays showed that Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi had handled the ball in the penalty area, only for a spot-kick not to be given in the first half of the 0-0 game at Stamford Bridge.
Clattenburg has now questioned the decision in his Daily Mail column:
“I am amazed Manchester United were not awarded a penalty in the first half for the clear handball by Callum Hudson-Odoi.
“The Chelsea player’s arm was up in an unnatural position and the ball hit his hand.
“VAR Chris Kavanagh thought referee Stuart Attwell had missed a clear penalty so he gave him the opportunity to review it at his pitch-side monitor.
“How Attwell did not then point to the spot, having been shown the same angles that we were, is a mystery.”
