Video: Man United denied penalty against Chelsea after Callum Hudson-Odoi handball claim

Manchester United have been denied a penalty after a VAR check in the early stages of their Premier League game against Chelsea.

The incident came after Marcus Rashford’s long-range free-kick was punched out by Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and Mason Greenwood and Callum Hudson-Odoi challenged for the rebound.

Initially, Chelsea made protests over a Greenwood handball but replays showed that the ball struck the hand of the Chelsea winger.

Referee Stuart Atwell was advised to check his pitch side monitor during a break in play but decided against awarding a spot-kick.

The ball clearly struck Hudson-Odoi’s hand in an unnatural position in the box and it was surprising that a penalty was not given.
