Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took aim at the officials for “taking two points away” from his Man Utd side in their draw at Chelsea, who he criticised for “influencing” referees.

Despite VAR advising referee Stuart Atwell to watch a replay of an incident in which Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi appeared to handle the ball in the box, Attwell opted to stick with his original on-field decision of a free-kick for Chelsea during their 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Asked if he thought his side should have been given a penalty, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “Yep, 100 per cent. They’re shouting it’s handball for our player, but when you look at it on the video, it’s taken two points away from us.”

United were similarly aggrieved two weeks ago after their draw at West Brom when Harry Maguire was denied a penalty and said afterwards, “ever since other people from other teams spoke about us, we’ve had absolutely nothing from the referee or VAR.”

It was a theme picked up by Solskjaer.

“It’s not right, is it?” he said. “It’s all these outside influences, even the VAR talk before the game here on Harry, when they put that on the website, that’s cheeky. It’s influencing referees. You can go back and look at the website. It’s putting pressure on the referees to give penalties against us.
