Man Utd fans fume after being denied 'clear penalty' as new angle of Gabriel's challenge on Hojlund emerges | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED fans are convinced the Red Devils should've been awarded a penalty during their Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Erik ten Hag's side suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Gunners on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring before Martin Odegaard drew his team level just one minute later.

Summer signing Declan Rice then fired Arsenal in front in the sixth minute of added time.

And Gabriel Jesus sealed all three points with a fantastic solo strike with just a few seconds to play.

Man Utd supporters were left furious with the result – for a number of reasons.

Many were convinced they should've had a penalty in the 87th minute after new boy Rasmus Hojlund went to ground following a challenge from Gabriel Magalhaes.

And the fire was stoked after a new angle of the challenge emerged on social media.

The two players fell to the floor following a tussle in the box, with both appearing to wrap their arms around each other.

However, United fans believe Hojlund was dragged to the floor while going for the ball.

One person tweeted: "No where near the ball, takes the man down, clear penalty."

Another added: "He didn't even win the ball, why on earth was it not reviewed? That's a penalty for any other PL side bar United."

A third fan commented: "The robbery was so obvious."

While another wrote: "Hadn’t seen this angle before… that crazy. Clear penalty. Did the same thing to Evans for Rice’s goal too. Ridiculous."

Ten Hag was also furious with three separate decisions – including the penalty appeal – after the match.

He claimed that Jonny Evans was fouled by Gabriel in the build-up to Rice's crucial goal in the late stages and insisted that Alejandro Garnacho's 88th minute strike – which was disallowed – wasn't offside.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Dutchman said: "It's not offside [for the Garnacho goal], wrong angle.

"It's a penalty on Hojlund, and then we concede a goal, it's a foul on Jonny Evans so clear and obvious."

The 3-1 defeat saw Man Utd drop to 11th in the Premier League table, while Arsenal climbed to fifth.
