TWEETS: Man United and Arsenal fans react to Antonio Valencia fall in the box

Was it a penalty for you?

The first half of Manchester United v Arsenal wasn’t great to say the least, but there’s one incident in particular that had tongues wagging for football fans.

The opening period of ReUnited proved to be the worse reunion since the Backstreet Boys, but Antonio Valencia’s fall in the box on 35 minutes had supporters losing their minds on social media.

Olivier Giroud’s late headed goal cost Man United all three points in the 1-1 draw, and it could have been oh-so different if Valencia’s penalty claim had been awarded .

All the best bets on football are on

Of course, Gunners’ supporters felt it was an act of simulation:
