Ashley Young Disagrees With Ref On Penalty Call

Manchester United were on the end of another controversial penalty call after centre referee Jonathan Moss awarded a second-half spot kick to Arsenal during their Premier League clash at the weekend.

The Red Devils had earlier been given a last gasp penalty in their Champions League last 16 second leg clash with French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Marcus Rashford tucked away the penalty to seal a quarterfinal spot in the competition with the help of the away goals rule via a 3-1 win.

Rashford and Manchester United were however on the receiving end after the award of the second half penalty from Jon Moss.

Brazilian midfielder Fred was penalised for a push on Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick converted the resulting penalty to give the Gunners a 2-0 win after Granit Xhaka had given them a 12th-minute lead.

After the game, Manchester United skipper Ashley Young expressed his disappointment and frustration at the costly penalty call against his team.

He told BBC Sport that the incident involving Lacazette and Fred should not have led to a penalty call from the centre referee.

The defeat meant that the Red Devils’ domestic unbeaten run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ended after 15 games in the Premier League and FA Cup.
