Man Utd vs. Brighton – Graham Potter makes admission about controversial penalty

Brighton manager Graham Potter was a ‘little surprised’ when his side were not awarded a penalty against the Red Devils at Old Trafford, but admitted afterward that he understood why.

Albion once again left a Premier League game empty-handed after taking the lead, as Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood completed a second-half comeback for Manchester United.

The scores were tied at 1-1 when goalscorer Danny Welbeck went down under a challenge from Harry Maguire at the back post.

And Brighton boss Potter said: “I was a little surprised it wasn’t given live,”

“It felt like a penalty.

“When I watched it back, it looks like a penalty [but] you can understand why VAR didn’t overrule it. It is what it is.

“These things happen. It’s football.

“You come here to a fantastic football club, with wonderful players, who are pushing for the Champions League and are the second-best team in the league. We have to look at ourselves and we have to be better in the second half.”
