Should Man United have been awarded a 1st half penalty v Arsenal? (Giroud on Rooney)
Surprisingly, Match of the Day did not show this clip on their coverage on Sunday night!
In a game of few chances, which Manchester United won 1-0, this penalty shout in the first half against Arsenal was one of the close calls of the encounter.
Olivier Giroud gave the ball away and in true striker fashion charged back to make up for his mistake but only managed to upend Wayne Rooney in a rather ugly manner.
Referee Michael Oliver was unmoved but it certainly looked like a good shout and could well have made Manchester United’s 1-0 victory a lot more comfortable than it turned out to be.
