Man Utd skipper Neville still angry over Chelsea winner

Manchester United captain Gary Neville has again declared the foul given against Darren Fletcher that led to Chelsea's winner last week was wrong.

United felt a sense of injustice at Martin Atkinson's decision to award Chelsea the free kick from which John Terry scored in the champions' 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge eight days ago.

And Neville told The Times: "I don't think it was a foul by Darren Fletcher which led to the free kick.

"I don't want to say we've been hard done by this season because every team has their complaints, and I don't want to jump on referees' backs because they are under a lot of pressure. Not only that, but the game is so fast that you can't eliminate all mistakes.

"Nevertheless, I expect the big decisions in the big matches to be correct, which is not happening at the moment."
