Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed David De Gea insisted he was distracted for Everton’s disallowed goal on Sunday afternoon.
Everton played a 1-1 draw with Manchester United, however, the Toffees could have claimed a victory.
Bruno Fernandes scored for a second successive Premier League match after Everton took the lead after three minutes when Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored.
Everton thought they had claimed victory through Calvert-Lewin, but his deflected strike was ruled out by VAR due to offside position.
Solskjaer has revealed De Gea was adamant that he couldn’t see.
“De Gea got distracted by the ball in front of him, but I don’t know what the rules are saying,” the 47-year-old told Sky Sports.
“David says he was distracted, even though he might not have saved it anyway.”
