Former referee Howard Webb admitted that Manchester United should have got a penalty against Arsenal. United played a 1-1 draw with Arsenal this past week. There were controversy regarding the referee’s decision for not giving a penalty after Antonio Valencia was appeared to have brought down by Gunners defender Nacho Monreal. Instead of giving a penalty referee Andre Marriner chose to keep the play on.

Webb thinks that it should have been a penalty, “I think on balance it was a penalty. Was it a cast-iron, stonewall penalty? No.

“I saw it in slow-motion and the contact was less significant than I first thought. But do I think Monreal in his attempt to get the ball impeded him? Yes I do. I think it’s a penalty and I’m surprised Andre didn’t give it.

“I don’t think there would have been much reaction if he had and I’m sure [Arsenal manager Arsene] Wenger would have been screaming for it down the other end.”
