Even if it did hit and go in off his arm, that's insufficient for it to be handball. Looking at every replay, including the one from behind the goal, I just don't see this as handball per the laws of the game.

I didn't say it was handball, just that it did contact his arm where as other views make it look completely clean. Next year there's no doubt it will be handball, but with the player being pushed by the defender there's also a chance any review would also award a penalty.

We were terrible. First half was a shambles defensively. Jack Stephens has had his opportunities and needs to go to the Championship I'm afraid.
We were lucky not to lose Ward-Beckham-Prowse.
We were unlucky not to score a good few in the second half.
We somehow made Perez look like an actual striker instead of the 1-in-4 kind of player he is.
Looked like a glorious day up there so I imagine a good time was had regardless.

Nevermind, Brighton are doomed I think.

Might as well add decent 2nd half. Still at least the women won the league.

Is Ole still the answer?

The Utd defence seem about as useful as Huddersfield's right now.

Congratulations to City on winning the league
it wasn't good having United as your hope, but we got confirmation from West of Stanley Park that the Ole revolution is over, the counter-revolution of crappy football has successfully won.

Yeah it was okay. It was nice to see James McCarthy back on the pitch after being out for so long since his leg break.

It was a shame that DCL couldn't get a goal as he has been working so hard, but he just isn't getting the goals he deserves.

They can't blame Ole for that, those players are as bad as Chelsea's in the way they just decide not to turn up some times. Their recruitment has been shocking for years and the mess they've made themselves with giving Sanchez so much money is going to be an incredible expensive problem to fix. Their fans should probably up the Glazers out campaign as new owners is probably the only way they'll get a quick fix. Having said that it looks like they'll have no Champions' League next season so they could probably use that as a way of offloading Pogba.

There's a slight chance they'll show up against City but I agree it's more than likely City will win all their games now so our only hope of winning something is beating Barca then Spurs/Ajax.

Pleasing results from those around us keeps top 4 hopes alive.

Bournemouth were abysmal yesterday, can’t see them getting anything against Saints next week, Scamp.

If you play Saints there is always a chance of getting a result regardless of how bad you're playing.
