‘Why not take 20 seconds to review it?’ – Azpilicueta asks why VAR didn’t award Chelsea penalty after Maguire headlock

The Blues defender wondered why officials didn’t take a closer look at an incident that could have changed the game on Saturday
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta felt the Blues deserved a penalty for an incident involving himself and Harry Maguire, adding that he thought the referee should have reviewed the decision.

Azpilicueta was dragged down in the box by Maguire during Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United, with the England defender draping his arms over the Spaniard’s shoulders.

Former United star Patrice Evra likened Maguire to Hulk Hogan after the incident, saying that the WWE-like manoeuvre was a clear penalty.
