Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blasted the referee following their draw against Chelsea on Sunday night.

The draw means that United are 12 points behind City in the title race but the Norwegian feels they should have had the three points in the game after Callum Hudson-Odoi appeared to handle the ball in the first half.

Speaking about Stuart Atwell’s failure to award his side a spot-kick, Solskjaer said: “It was a penalty, 100% nailed on. If that’s a natural position for a hand to be in when the ball comes in then I must be blind.

“We wanted to win. Apart from the last quality or pass being not good enough, we had great pressing, desire (and) work-rate. There was a great save by David de Gea and we got the clean sheet. That’s what let us down, that quality on the ball. The first half was scrappy. Poor game really. But then we played some good stuff at times. When we settled we created a few chances but we didn’t have enough.”
