United fans are convinced Everton keeper Robles should have been sent off

Date Posted,April 4, 2017

Man United’s Premier League clash with Everton certainly didn’t pass without incident.

The Toffees upset the apple cart by taking the lead in the 22nd minute when Phil Jagielka channeled Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score.

And it looked for everyone that Ronald Koeman’s men were going to leave Old Trafford with all three points.

Well, until Luke Shaw fired a shot at goal and Ashley Williams dived to save it with his hand and got himself sent off.

At that point – the 93rd minute of the game – it looked like Man United were definitely going to get back into it.

Well, Ibrahimovic doesn’t miss penalties, does he now?

And sure enough they did. Red Devils fans were no doubt relieved to see the ball hit the back of the net, and were hopeful that their boys could go on and grab another goal.

But they couldn’t. Everton held on with 10-men and the two clubs shared the spoils.

Now, Toffees keeper Joel Robles picked up a yellow card for time wasting when there were only seconds left on the clock.

He then kicked the ball into the stands moments after Ibrahimovic converted his penalty and, well, United fans weren’t happy.

Many think the Spaniard should have been given his marching orders for dissent, and took to social media to suggest he was lucky not to have seen red.

Ibrahimovic also made his frustration felt by gesturing to the world with his arms held out, but referee Neil Swarbrick turned away.

Twitter, however, didn’t turn away:
