However, Chelsea legendary goalie – Petr Cech wasn’t pleased with the officials’ decisions because he thought Rashford’s interference with the game should have prevented the equalizer from standing.

The first United goal just proved the people who make the rules don’t understand the game.” Cech wrote on his twitter page.

Obviously, Rashford was shielding the ball after coming from an offside position and the laws clearly state that the goal should not have stood.

However, a player can also influence play without touching the ball, and so should be given offside if the referee feels that their offside position has interfered with an opponent – for example by preventing the — opponent from playing the ball or by obstructing a goalkeeper’s line of vision.” – the law states.
