Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has hit back at critics such as Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, who felt he should have had a penalty called against him in the goalless draw between the two sides.

In the first half when Cesar Azpilicueta went down in the box after a clash with Maguire. The England international appeared to be holding Azpilicueta but VAR ruled there was nothing in it.

The decision angered Lampard, who said after the match: “Holding is allowed, but headlocks don’t go on. I don’t know why VAR didn’t take long and there’s also a monitor to look at. I think if the referee goes to the monitor he gives a penalty.”

In a post on his Instagram story, Maguire responded to the comments with an image of a similar incident from the game which happened to him. The picture showed Maguire attempting to get away from Reece James, who has his left arm wrapped around the United defender.

But just like with Maguire and Azpilicueta, the referee and VAR allowed play to continue.
