The United captain was adamant that the referee's decision is final but Rashford felt the sending off was harsh from Anthony Taylor.

Rashford believes Lamela should have also been handed his marching orders but Maguire was more concerned about moving on with the game.

Microphones on the pitch picked up both star's argument as Rashford asked:

"Nothing for that elbow?"

The referee then walks towards Lamela and shows him the yellow card.

Rashford added:

"Why, it's the same?"

Maguire, immediately after, says:

"It's not violent conduct they've checked."

Rashford responded:

"He's elbowed him!"

Maguire then said:

"They've checked it and it's not."

Martial headed straight towards the end of the tunnel but Rashford was not happy with the sense of injustice as Lamela continued the match with just a yellow card.

On the other hand, Maguire believes after a check had been conducted on the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), his teammates should focus on the remainder of the game.
