(Video) Cesar Azpilicueta believes he should have had a penalty against United

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta feels he should have earned a penalty in the first half against Manchester United.

The incident was discussed after the match with Patrice Evra and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in agreement that the referee got it wrong.

United were lucky that VAR didn’t intervene because Harry Maguire is guilty of wrapping his arms around Azpilicueta and dragging the Chelsea full-back to the ground. Check out the footage below courtesy of Sky Sports:

Maguire got away with it but most referees keep an eye out for these incidents and won’t think twice before pointing to the spot.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Azpilicueta questioned the decision not to award Chelsea with a penalty.

“I felt both of his arms around my neck,” the Spain international said.
