Arsenal penalty against Man United debated

11 Mar 2019, 18:05

Arsenal penalty against Manchester United on Sunday continues to generate debate given its authenticity or lack of it.

Fred brought down Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Jonathan Moss, the matchday's centre referee pointed to the spot and the Gabonese made no mistake by converting it successfully to make the score 2-0. Graeme Souness, Garry Neville and Jamie Redknapp all have given their opinions regarding the penalty that ensured Man United are beaten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"Yes, I think they were unlucky. I don't think it was a penalty. I'm just thinking of reasons why the referee gave it and I think at the last minute, it looks like Fred has put an arm into the back of him and knocked him over. It's a soft penalty, there's no doubt about that, but in terms of what the referee sees, I think he believes Fred fell into the back of him." Souness said.

"Lacazette just had that yard where he drove inside Fred, got the wrong side of him from the point of view where you can't make a tackle. It's a little bit clumsy and I think it is soft. Lacazette just feels that little touch and drives in there and Fred gets a little too close to him. I think it is more about the two thighs coming together and knocking him off his stride. I think the first connection that causes both of them to fall is the right thigh meeting the left thigh - that's knocked him off track - then both of them go. Fred is now falling and then the elbow comes afterwards." Neville said.

"We've got a true view. I was wondering if his vision was slightly impeded, but it's not, he's got a good view of this one. He can see through the gap, he can see the players are coming together - I think that is extremely harsh. I'm not sure that's a penalty." Redknapp argued.
