When I saw the ref was not Mike Dean or Harold Webb I heaved a sigh of relief...for once a chance to take on the mighty Man U fair and square...
I was not surprised by the outcome!
Agree that the fault lies with the midfield rather than Smalling or Brown. You could argue that they should have done more to stop Suarez but to be honest that was down to skill on his part and any defender is always going to be mindful of the risk of giving away a penalty. The killer goal was the second and no defender could have anticipated that one of his teammates would have made such a howler.
