'Dinosaurs!' Manchester United Fans Slam Keys And Gray For Penalty Analysis

Manchester United have been the benficiaries of quite a few penalty calls over the past 18 months, and this hasn't escaped the attention of fans.

It's also been pinpointed by pundits, with some claiming that the Red Devils are getting more than their fair share of spot kicks.

Last season they won 14 penalties, four more than the team with the second-most, Manchester City. It was six more than the third-most, Watford.

This time round they haven't been so dominant, gaining the joint second-most (with Brighton) penalties with six in 16 matches. Leicester City have the most with an impressive 10.

However, despite this downturn, Andy Gray and Richard Keys, always on the lookout for controversy and attention, have decided to criticise the Red Devils for going down too easily in the box - while speaking on Bein Sports.

According to the pair, the amount of penalties that Man Utd have received over the past 18 months is "unprecedented".

It's completely fine to just ignore Keys and Gray after the sexism scandal that saw them leave Sky Sports, but Manchester United fans still felt the need to defend their club from the accusations.

This may have just given the duo the attention they seemed to be craving, but it also certainly went some way to refuting their claims.

However, the pair aren't the only ones who have criticised Manchester United on the penalty front recently. Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz hit out on Twitter after a penalty was given against him despite it appearing that Paul Pogba tripped over his own leg.

Should it have been given?
