West Ham vs Man Utd: Solskjaer delivers verdict on ‘stonewall’ penalties not awarded to Ronaldo

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has given his verdict on two ‘stonewall’ penalties not awarded to Cristiano Ronaldo during his side’s Premier League 2-1 win against West Ham on Sunday.

Two goals from Ronaldo and Jesse Lingard gave Man United all three points against the Hammers at the London Stadium.

Man United goalkeeper, David de Gea, also saved Mark Noble’s penalty in the 95th minute during the encounter.

But Solskjaer feels the Red Devils United should have had two penalties of their own, both for fouls on Ronaldo.

“Two [penalties United should have been awarded] first and the last,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“I think they are stonewall you can’t even argue them. I think the first one the lad puts his leg up, Cristiano runs straight and is fouled.

“The last one, Paul had a foul against Kurt Zouma went over him. “So why is Cristiano third appeal not a penalty?

“Hopefully, it won’t be Cristiano is never going to get a penalty.”
