Former Premier League referee, Mark Clattenburg, has insisted that Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late goal against Manchester United should have stood.

Calvert-Lewin thought he had scored the winner, after his shock came off Harry Maguire into the net.

But VAR ruled that his team-mate Gylfi Sigurdsson was offside and interfered with play.

“This is one that will divide opinion, but in my view Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late goal should have stood.

“The striker’s shot deflected off Manchester United defender Harry Maguire and that wrong-footed keeper David de Gea, allowing the ball to trickle into the goal.

“When Calvert-Lewin got his effort away, Gylfi Sigurdsson was in an offside position, but the Everton midfielder did not touch the ball,” Clattenburg told the Daily Mail.

Calvert-Lewin had given Everton an early lead following a David De Gea error, before Bruno Fernandes made it 1-1.
