Moyes furious as Sherwood admits Tottenham rode their luck in Man Utd penalty decision

Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Tim Sherwood admitted that his side were fortunate not to have a penalty given against them in their 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, Sky Sports has reported.

David Moyes

Sherwood’s United counterpart David Moyes was furious after the final whistle, raging against referee Howard Webb’s decision not to point to the spot after Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris appeared to flatten United winger Ashley Young. Webb instead waved play on, with the Lloris-Young clash not the only incident to raise the ire of Moyes.

In reference to the coming together of Lloris and Young, Moyes said: “It was scandalous, a scandal. If you follow through on a player anywhere else on the pitch with your foot high, it would be a sending-off and a red card. You couldn't do that anywhere else.

The goalkeeper comes out, Ashley Young gets the ball before him and he follows through,” Moyes continued. “It's an incredible decision which didn't go our way, in fact probably the one of the worst I think I saw.

Sherwood agreed with Moyes that a penalty probably should have been awarded, but pointed to past decisions that have gone against Tottenham at Old Trafford. “I haven't seen it back but at the time I thought it was a penalty,” Sherwood said.

It's one of them that could go either way but if we have got away that one I'm pleased because I remember coming here with Harry (Redknapp),” Sherwood continued. “We were 2-0 up at half time and (Heurelho) Gomes made a save, he quite clearly played the ball first but they got a penalty. They even themselves out.

Spurs clinched victory through goals from Emmanuel Adebayor and Christian Eriksen, with Danny Welbeck replying for the hosts. The result means Tottenham are three points clear of United in sixth place, two points adrift of a place in the top four.
