MARK CLATTENBURG: Harry Maguire shouldn’t have been on the pitch to score Manchester United goal


MARK CLATTENBURG: Harry Maguire shouldn’t have been on the pitch to rating Manchester United’s next intention immediately after stamping into Michy Batshuayi’s groin… Anthony Taylor have to just take the blame for very poor final decision

  • Harry Maguire created very clear next movement towards Michy Batshuayi’s groin
  • The centre-again could’ve prevented earning get in touch with with striker but chose to
  • Referee Anthony Taylor should’ve used his pitch-aspect watch but didn’t 

Harry Maguire must not have been on the pitch to score Manchester United’s second target just after his previously kick-out at Michy Batshuayi. 

On to start with viewing, I wished to help Maguire, imagining perhaps he experienced caught the Chelsea striker in his stick to through immediately after complicated for the ball. 

But replays showed the United defender created a clear 2nd movement to Batshuayi which he could have averted. He designed a stamping motion into Batshuayi’s groin and must have noticed purple.

It seemed as though Maguire deliberately stamped on Michy Batshuayi's groin in the first half

It appeared as although Maguire intentionally stamped on Michy Batshuayi’s groin in the initially 50 %

VAR appeared at this but did not deem it a distinct error by referee Anthony Taylor, and this is in which the inconsistencies lie. 

Let us not forget Taylor was the person in the center when Tottenham’s Son Heung-min built a very similar foul on Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger in December. 

Taylor missed the problem by Maguire, but experienced he long gone to his pitch-facet watch, I’m sure he would have sent him off. As for the scheduling for Willian, that was a blatant dive.

Maguire stayed on the pitch and then scored United’s 2nd target in a 2- acquire on Monday
