Man Utd boss blames official

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was an angry man after the 3-3 draw at Chelsea despite his team’s dramatic fightback from three down.

He was furious United were not given a penalty when the game was finely poised at 0-0.

Gary Cahill appeared to foul Danny Welback but referee Howard Webb did not award a spot-kick.

“It’s two points dropped because we played so well, other than the 10 minutes after half-time. It’s not easy getting back from 3-0 down – that’s a massive effort from my players,” Ferguson told Sky Sports.

“It was a sending off. The linesman has given two penalties against us at Old Trafford in the last two years – one against Arsenal and one against Liverpool – from 45 yards away, but he can’t see that? I don’t blame Howard Webb. I blame the assistant.”
