- Renan Lodi’s corner hit Harry Maguire on the arm at 0-0
- ‘I think it is a definite penalty and could be a game-changer’
Steve Cooper, the Nottingham Forest manager, said Harry Maguire should have been penalised for handling in the area in a potentially gamechanging moment of Manchester United’s 2-0 victory at the City Ground.
Erik ten Hag praised his players’ adaptability, after Marcel Sabitzer was injured in the warmup, as goals from Antony and Diogo Dalot enabled United to climb to third place in the Premier League before their cup games, away against Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-final second leg and Brighton in the FA Cup semi-final, and a visit to fifth-placed Tottenham on Thursday week.
