Defender Armel Bella-Kotchap was practically left on all fours as he blocked the incoming ball.

Replays revealed it struck the top of the centre-back’s arm but referee Anthony Taylor waved play on.

No penalty was awarded even after a VAR check – leaving United fans fuming online.

One said: “Hi @Specsavers, think we might have a new client for you, goes by the name of Anthony Taylor.”

Another added: “If this was our player handling the ball in the box Anthony Taylor would have pointed to the spot without hesitation.”

One posted: “How is that not a penalty to Manchester United? We’ve conceded penalties for FAR LESS this season.

“It’s a clear handball that’s prevented Weghorst from having a chance to score. Yet no intervention from VAR. NONSENSE!”

Another said: “What’s a handball nowadays?”


It added more misery to United’s day after Casemiro was sent off for a tackle on Carlos Alcaraz.

The Brazilian initially won the ball but went in with his studs up and his momentum saw him follow through.

Taylor gave a yellow at first but following a VAR check, Casemiro was shown straight red for the second time this season.
