Manchester United boss David Moyes has called for clarification over the hand-ball ruling after a penalty claim against Chelsea was waved away last night.

Manchester United boss David Moyes has called for clarification over the hand-ball ruling after a penalty claim against Chelsea was waved away last night.

Tom Cleverley's second-half strike was blocked by Frank Lampard's right hand, but United appeals were dismissed by ref Martin Atkinson.

"That is two [decisions] in a week that Chelsea have had and they have been good shouts," Moyes said. "The referee gave a handball on Oscar about five minutes later which I thought was less of a handball than the one in the box, so I think it could do with being cleared up, what is and isn't a handball.

"I don't think the managers are quite sure, but I think the referee otherwise had a good game. It was a big call for a game like this, though."
