Man United fans slate Jon Moss after Valencia/Alli dive inconsistencies

Supporters of Manchester United have this afternoon taken to social media to tear into referee Jonathan Moss for his decision-making during their clash with Tottenham.

Crucial matchup

The two sides went head to head at in a vital fixture at Old Trafford, having come into the clash level in 2nd place in the English top-flight table.

United came out of the blocks in impressive fashion, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men soon worked their way into proceedings, with youngster Harry Winks looking impressive in the middle of the park throughout the first-half.

However, the home side reestablished their dominance during the early proceedings of the second-half, though clear-cut chances were few and far between.

A late strike from United substitute Anthony Martial eventually proved the difference, but it was a couple of other talking points which had Twitter abuzz.

Going down too easy

These flashpoints involved Dele Alli and Antonio Valencia, and the inconsistency of referee Jonathan Moss.

Spurs midfielder Alli appeared to dive on a couple of occasions during the first-half, with one particularly blatant effort having actually earned his side a free-kick.

Understandably, Red Devils fans were incensed, a feeling which was only intensified when Antonio Valencia was booked for a dive of his own in the visitors’ box after the interval.
