Game over’… Sky Sports pundits have strong views on Manchester United being denied penalty against Crystal Palace

Manchester United were left to rue a brilliant free-kick from Michael Olise which earned Crystal Palace a point at Selhurst Park. This was enough to earn Palace a share of the points in a 1-1 draw.

While fair to admire the outstanding free-kick, Manchester United partly had themselves to blame for failing to score a second goal, or create enough chances to do so.

But when it comes to blame, some must go towards the officials, who denied Manchester United a clear penalty in the second half.

Scott McTominay appeared to be fouled inside the box by Palace defender Chris Richards.

Scott McTominay had only been on the pitch a few minutes when he was brought down inside the penalty area.

The referee decided no penalty, and then VAR decreed that was not a ‘clear and obvious error’, so the decision was not overturned.

This would have given Manchester United a chance to go 2-0 up, and possibly rest Casemiro, avoiding a suspension.
