Rio Ferdinand believes Albion should have been awarded a second penalty against Manchester United.

And former referee Peter Walton has agreed video ref Simon Hooper played too much of role in the decision NOT to give the spot kick.

Paul Pogba was penalised for a foul on Aaron Connolly early in the second half with the scores level at 1-1.

Following communication with Hooper, referee Chris Kavanagh checked his pitchside monitor.

He then decided to cancel the penalty and wipe out the yellow card shown to Pogba.

Former United defender Ferdinand said Neal Maupay should have been spotting the ball up.

He told BT Sport viewers: “I like to see Man United get good results but I honestly believe that’s a penalty.

“Pogba was in the wrong position, he’s panicking.

“I know exactly what it’s like to be in that position and you are trying to do all you can to get your body back in the right position.

“Unfortunately I think there is a coming together and there is enough contact there to go down.”

Hooper could be heard telling Kavanagh: “Have a look at this, the Brighton player initiates the contact.”

Also on BT Sport, Walton said Hooper should not have offered that opinion adding: “He should not suggest ‘I think this’.”
