Review
Robbed. We were well robbed today. After taking the lead in the second minute and doubling it two minutes later, we allowed Man U to pull one back before half-time, get the equalizer shortly into the second half and then take the lead with 15 minutes to go. Yeah, take the lead with a ridiculous penalty decision. Rashford made the most of it and dived in the area under a very innocous challenge. Before that though another bad decision got Worral his red card. He stumbled, but the Man U player went down easliy, outside the area, with Wily Boly covering. It went to VAR, but maybe Alex Ferguson was in the room today. Oh, and their equalizer? Miles offside. Good job refs at Old Trafford.

Stats:
Taiwo Awoniyi has now scored in his last 7 games and only one more goal from tying the consecutive goals record
This is Joe Worral's only second red card in over ten years
