AVB Blasts Referee Howard Webb For Poor Decisions

What do you think of  United’s result against Chelsea last night, was it a fair one? Andres Villas-Boas does not. In fact, it would have been a famous victory for him had it not been for Howard Webb awarding the Red Devils two penalties that changed the face of the game.

VIllas-Boas who believes United’s second penalty should have never been awarded, claimed that Webb seemed to be making up for decisions he made against United in the First half.

Here is what he had to say after the match:

“We expect in top games top refs, and it has not been happening for us,” said Villas-Boas in his post-match press conference. “It didn’t happen for us at Old Trafford with two off-side goals and maybe with today’s dubious decision, which, in the end, shaped the running of the game.

“I don’t know if he [Webb] is compensating for something in the first half. The second one is a wrong decision. [Danny] Welbeck’s legs got caught with Ivanovic. You can’t give a penalty for that, I’m sure. I don’t know if Howard Webb has the correct angle to make that decision.”

The draw means that United remain 2 points behind cross town rivals Man City who were 3-0 home winners over Fulham. A look at the EPL standings reveals that City, United and Tottenham remain the top challengers for the Premier League title with the trio having 57, 55 and 49 points respectfully, although Tottenham have played a game less.
