Manchester United hosted Crystal Palace in the Premier League today.
After only seven minutes, Portuguese attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes gave Erik ten Hag’s side the lead from the penalty spot.
On 62 minutes, English forward Marcus Rashford put the Red Devils up 2-0.
Casemiro, a Brazilian defensive midfielder, was sent off in the 70th minute.
On 76 minutes, the Eagles’ Jeffrey Schlupp found the back of the net.
United eventually won the game 2-1.
The penalty decision in favor of United versus Palace was contentious.
Rashford nipped the ball in from the left, and it struck Will Hughes’s flying arm.
Andre Marriner visited the Referee Review Area and issued a penalty following a suggestion from VAR Tony Harrington.
Fernandes made no mistakes right away.
Ultimately was a contentious decision, but it favored the home team.
And, as you can see in the video below, former Manchester United striker Owen feels it was the right move.

“I think most people will come to the conclusion that it’s a penalty,” Owen said of the penalty decision. When you look at it slowly, the arm raises up into an unnatural position.”
