Fans Think Scott McTominay Should Have Been Sent Off For Wild Challenge On James Maddison

Fans think Scott McTominay was extremely lucky to avoid a red card for a reckless challenge on Leicester City's James Maddison at Old Trafford this evening.

The Scotland international went in dangerously with his stoods showing on the former Norwich midfielder in the early stages of the second half.

Maddison flew in the air and rolled around on the turf in agony as Leicester players immediately protested.

But Andre Marriner only brandished a yellow card for the tackle and the incident was not overturned by VAR.

Fans could not believe such a poor challenge from McTominay did not result in a straight red card:


A mere five minutes after his lucky escape, McTominay was substituted for Marcus Rashford in what was a sensible change from Ralf Rangnick.

It was the second sub for the hosts after the injured Luke Shaw was replaced by Alex Telles at left-back.

Leicester went 1-0 up through former Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who headed home at the far post.

But the lead lasted just three minutes as Fred levelled matters with a rebounded finish after Kasper Schmeichel could only parry Bruno Fernandes' effort into his path.

The visitors had the ball in the back of the net for a second time when Maddison smashed past David De Gea following a comical defensive mix-up at the back for United.


However VAR ruled that Raphael Varane had been fouled by Iheanacho in the build-up and so the goal was chalked off.
