Manchester United know exactly how Liverpool felt as Red Devils fume at half-time whistle stopping counter-attack
They say all the refereeing decisions have a way of evening themselves out at the end of the season, something Manchester United learnt during their clash at West Brom.
The Red Devils got a slight let-off during their clash at Liverpool last month as referee Paul Tierney blew the half-time whistle early with Sadio Mane through on goal.
But Manchester United found themselves on the wrong side of a similar decision as a promising counter-attack at West Brom was halted by the Craig Pawson blowing for half time.
With the match locked at 1-1, Man United began building an attack at a rapid rate but it never came to anything much to the outrage of the players.
The likes of Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial looked visibly disappointed, while other players remonstrated with Pawson.
Liverpool fans will argue the situation isn’t the same as the whistle was blown after the allotted two minutes at the end of the second half while Liverpool’s attack was halted before the allotted time.
Fernandes levelled the scores in the 44th minute with a well-taken left-footed volley after Mbaye Diagne headed the home side ahead after just 83 seconds.
