Halsey says Man Utd SHOULD have been given penalty vs Chelsea but he respects Stuart Attwell for sticking to his guns

MANCHESTER UNITED should have been given a penalty when Callum Hudson-Odoi handled in the box.

Under ‘Law 12 — handling the ball’, referee Stuart Attwell had to ask himself the following:


  • Was Hudson-Odoi’s arm in an unnatural position? My view is yes it was.
  • Did he deliberately move his arm or hand towards the ball? Again, that’s a yes for me.

However, this was a subjective call and a really tough decision for Attwell in real time.

I didn’t think VAR needed to get involved as it wasn’t a clear and obvious error.

In fact, at first I thought United’s Mason Greenwood had handled.

Once Attwell went to the monitor, I expected a penalty.

And although United will be frustrated, I respect him for sticking to his decision.

Luke Shaw accused Attwell of saying he could not give a penalty because it would be controversial.

If that is true, Attwell should not be saying that.
