Watch hilarious moment Man Utd defender Harry Maguire appears to appeal for handball against his OWN team-mate Matic

FOOTY fans were left gobsmacked after Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire appeared to appeal for a handball against his own team-mate.

The bizarre incident took place in the first half of the Red Devils‘ fateful trip to Goodison Park on Saturday to take on Everton.

After a header from Toffees ace Anthony Gordon hit Nemanja Matic just under the arm-pit, Maguire raised his arm in the air and shouted in protest.

The baffling appeal – which can only be explained by Maguire believing Matic’s arm belonged to an Everton player – quickly became the talk of social media.

One fan watching the game tweeted: “TF is this guy doin’?!?”

Another said: “Absolute comedy.”

And another said: “Walking disaster.”

One remarked: “Did he just call a foul on Matic? Good thing I didn’t waste my time on this game LMFAO.”

Another chimed in: “He’s claiming a handball against his own player!”

United’s inconsistent form continued at Goodison as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Frank Lampard’s relegation battlers.

A deflected shot from Gordon a mere minute before Maguire’s bizarre handball appeal saw the Merseysiders bag a much-needed three points in their bid to beat the drop.

An elated Lampard said after the match: “Very proud.

“You know, pressured times with where we are and the reality of the situation.

“At Goodison, we’ve been good. I think that’s our fifth win in [our last] seven. And good clean sheets, we’re getting clean sheets at home.

“Away from home is a different aspect.”
