Video: Frank Lampard says Man Utd skipper Maguire should have been sent off

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says Manchester United defender Harry Maguire should have been sent off at Stamford Bridge tonight.

Right in front of the Blues bench, Maguire clashed with Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, who had an absolute mare in the game.

But time and time again we hear Lampard make excuses when things don’t go Chelsea’s way.

It wasn’t a great match — performance wise for either side — and from a tactical point of view, it looked like the two managers are out of their depth, which shouldn’t come as a big surprise to anyone.

The incident that has Lampard outraged saw Maguire fall to the ground after coming off the pitch and he appeared to kick out at Batshuayi, though the United man has played down claims he kicked out.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer echoed those sentiments.

However, Lampard disagrees and says Maguire holding his hands up pleading innocence and being an England international aided his cause.

Lampard has seen lots of dodgy decisions go Chelsea’s way down the years. How about when John Terry spat on Carlos Tevez in the 2008 Champions League?

Looking back at the kick out, Maguire doesn’t need to raise a second leg to protect himself, and should really have been sent off.

But in football decisions go your way or against you. It’s never been any different. If Maguire was to do that on Thursday night against Club Brugge he’d more than likely see red.
