Gary Neville described Scott McTominay’s foul on Armando Broja as ‘terrible’ and ‘clumsy’ after he gave away a late penalty in ’s dramatic 1-1 draw with .

McTominay’s foul led to Chelsea taking the lead on 86 minutes as Jorginho slotted home his spot-kick before levelled things up in the 94th minute.

The result at Stamford Bridge sees United stay fifth in the Premier League, one point behind fourth-placed Chelsea after the opening 11 games of the season.

‘It’s clumsy from McTominay,’ Neville told . ‘There’s no doubt that at the end [Armando Broja] throws himself to the ground but there is initial contact.

‘It’s that left arm, then it’s the right arm. I think that’s the problem for McTominay. He may feel like he’s not brought Broja down but optically it looks terrible.

‘He looked like he was hugging him and pulling him to the ground. There’s a way to stop people going across you as soon as you put your arm or two arms on someone you’re in trouble.’

United midfielder Bruno Fernandes was quizzed about the incident after the match.

‘I said to the referee that in the Premier League this kind of contact is every game,’ Fernandes told Sky Sports.

‘I didn’t see it, I can’t say if it was right or not. Scott said he was not holding him. I don’t know.’
