A contentious penalty decision by the referee irked the Manchester United fans, as Arsenal managed to steal a late draw at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils had dominated most of the game and taken a well deserved lead through Juan Mata in the 68th minute. But French striker Olivier Giroud struck with the Gunners only shot on target to deny United in the 89th minute.

It could have all been very different if referee Andre Mariner had given a very close penalty call in the first half though. Antonio Valencia was brought down by a falling Nacho Monreal, but Mariner waved away the appeals from United players for a penalty.

After the game Man United fans took to twitter to sarcastically applaud Mariner, naming him Arsenal’s Man of the Match.
