Gary Neville not convinced by the decision to award Liverpool a penalty in Sunday’s draw with Manchester United

Gary Neville was spotted saying Liverpool shouldn’t have been awarded a late penalty in their 2-2 draw with Manchester United on Sunday. 

The Red Devils were leading 2-1 after they fought back from a goal down, courtesy of brilliant efforts from Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo. 

But with a few minutes remaining in normal time, referee Anthony Taylor awarded a penalty to Liverpool after a challenge from Aaron Wan-Bissaka on Harvey Elliott. 

Mohamed Salah made no mistake from the spot as the visitors managed to come away with a point from the home of their bitter rivals. 

However, Neville was seen claiming that Jurgen Klopp’s side shouldn’t have been given a penalty. 

Neville is right

Liverpool shouldn’t have been awarded a penalty that ultimately denied Erik ten Hag’s side three points in the Premier League fixture. 

Elliott was going down even before Wan-Bissaka touched him. However, the defender should be making that challenge in the box. 

United’s overall performance at Old Trafford wasn’t good. They collected a point due to individual brilliance. 

The attacking trio of Alejandro Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund and Marcus Rashford were disappointing as they failed to trouble the Reds’ backline. 

Bruno Fernandes scored a brilliant goal but the Portuguese wasn’t at his best, losing possession 18 times in the game.
