Dermot Gallagher believes the correct decision was made not to award a penalty to Manchester United against Southampton on Sunday.

United had a penalty appeal turned down in the first half at St Mary's as Jon Moss waved away protests from the Red Devils after Marcus Rashford went down under a challenge from James Ward-Prowse.

The referee's decision was not overturned by VAR as United were left frustrated, with Southampton leading 2-0 at half time thanks to goals from Jan Bednarek and James Ward-Prowse.

United fought back in the second half though, with Bruno Fernandes reducing the deficit before two goals from substitute Edinson Cavani completed the turnaround for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

However, former Premier League referee Gallagher has said that he can understand why the first half penalty appeal was turned down.

"This is a tough call and it comes down to the individual referee," he said, speaking as part of Sky Sports' Ref Watch feature.

"It's such a subjective call as there is a tangle of legs. There's no doubt there's contact, but I would back the referee in this case as both players are falling.

"The ball is between them so there's going to be contact. I would say that's not a penalty."
