Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has this evening revealed his opinion that the Red Devils were hard done by in not picking up all 3 points versus Everton earlier today.
Greenwood clinches point
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men welcomed the Toffees to Old Trafford this afternoon, for a Premier League clash.
United headed into proceedings on a much-improved run of form of late, having notched 3 consecutive victories across all competitions.
Their last 2 league outings saw the Red Devils secure impressive victories over both Tottenham and Manchester City.
Everton, though, also came into the matchup with their tails up, on the back of a 3-1 win over Chelsea last time out.
And, when all was said and done in Manchester, interim Toffees boss Duncan Ferguson did his hopes of being handed the club’s managerial reins on a permanent basis no harm.
A Victor Lindelof own goal shortly before half-time was eventually cancelled out by Mason Greenwood, to see the spoils shared.
Highlights: Man United 1-1 Everton
‘A clear foul’
As outlined above, Everton’s solitary strike this afternoon came courtesy of a Victor Lindelof own goal.
A Toffees corner from the right saw David De Gea miss his attempted punch clear, only for the ball to rebound off the unfortunate Lindelof and into an empty net.
Many, though, feel as though the goal should actually have been ruled out.
In attempting to clear Leighton Baines’ delivery, De Gea was met by a hand/forearm from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, impeding the Spaniard’s efforts to reach the ball.
VAR eventually decided that DCL’s challenge was not worthy of a foul, though, a call which one Manchester United player has this evening revealed his frustration with.
Speaking in a post-match interview a short time ago, Harry Maguire revealed his opinion that there was ‘a clear foul’ on De Gea, hinting that the Red Devils deserved all 3 points:
‘We deserved more. Dominated the game, really. We conceded a goal that was a clear foul. We were disappointed to concede that sort of goal but we bounced back in the second half.’
‘It was a clear foul. People will say David de Gea has to be stronger but it is a clear foul. He jumps in on him and David was impeded.’
