‘Retrospective ban!’ – Man United fans rage over what Mason Mount did in Chelsea draw

Manchester United fans have found another reason to be furious about the goalless draw with Chelsea.

The biggest talking point from Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash came in the first-half when the visitors could have been awarded a penalty for an apparent handball by Callum Hudson-Odoi.

This happened following a Marcus Rashford free-kick that was not dealt with properly by Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, which prompted Hudson-Odoi to battle United forward Mason Greenwood for possession inside his own area.

Replays showed that the ball appeared to striker Hudson-Odoi on the arm on two occasions, while Greenwood also seemed to hit the ball with his arm, but his touch occurred after the first from the Blues’ man.

As expected, referee Stuart Attwell was instructed by VAR to review the incident.

It appeared that the official would perhaps point to the spot but, after viewing what happened on the pitchside monitor at Stamford Bridge, it was decided that there was no infringement.

This left United fans on social media furious as they believed it should have been a penalty.

Meanwhile, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and defender Luke Shaw spoke out after the game about the decision.

However, it has since been confirmed that the aforementioned duo will face no action from the FA.

There was, however, another incident that Manchester United fans spotted during the game that has got some of them talking.

Indeed, some United supporters believe Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount should have been sent-off for what some Red Devils fans feel was a “kick out” at Fred.

The incident, which seemingly went unnoticed by the officials, happened early on in the second half after Mount was challenged by Fred in the midfield.

No action was taken by referee Stuart Attwell, or VAR, which has simply added to the anger of the Red Devils’ fanbase on social media, after United also missed out on a penalty in the game.

The game finished 0-0 as Chelsea stayed fifth in the table, but moved to within one point of West Ham in fourth.
