Fans left in disbelief as Harry Maguire escapes red card during Man United vs Fulham

Fans left in disbelief as Harry Maguire escapes red card during Man United vs Fulham

Harry Maguire is in action for Manchester United as they take on Fulham at Old Trafford.

Fans have been left in disbelief after Harry Maguire escaped a red card during Manchester United vs Fulham.

On Saturday afternoon, the Red Devils welcomed Fulham to Old Trafford looking to make it five wins in a row in the Premier League.

With 36 minutes on the clock, Maguire was shown a yellow card after a late tackle on Sasa Lukic.

However, fans were left fuming as replays shown Maguire could have easily seen red.

Reacting on social media, one fan said: “How is this not a red card on Maguire?”

Another tweeted: “That's a crystal clear red card for Maguire. What the f**k.”

A third fan added: “That's a red card offense man. Maguire should be off.”

Someone else wrote: “How has Maguire NOT received a red card there?”

A fifth commented: “That should be a stonewall red card for Maguire. Insane.”

Another fan said: “How is this not a red card for Maguire. Var must be kidding.”

This is now the second match running that United have potentially been lucky not to have a player sent off.

During their 2-1 win over Luton Town last weekend, Brazilian midfielder Casemiro was lucky to stay on the pitch after making a rash challenge whilst already on a yellow card.

The midfielder was eventually taken off at halftime after escaping a second booking during the first period.

After about that incident, Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag said: “Again, with Casemiro, it’s very harsh to concede the first booking and I don't understand why. And then of course, in the second, that was a booking. Very clear.

“I think also the referee knows what's going on with the first one. And I think the refereeing in general, it can't be all the time Casemiro, by his first tackle, they book him.”
