Leeds fans on Twitter have been sharing their reactions after a social media post from the Yorkshire club. 

This comes after the official Leeds Twitter account shared a post on their page that contained footage from the club’s recent 0-0 draw against Manchester United, specifically of a handball shout that involved Luke Shaw where the ball made contact with his arm in the penalty area but was not given by the referee or VAR.

Starting with an easy one who is Leeds United's top Premier League goalscorer this season?

The official Leeds Twitter account captioned this post asking their followers what they made of this incident, with many fans quick to do so.

So, what did these Leeds fans make of this handball incident during the game against Man United?

“100% penalty. How can it not be? Stopping a goalscoring chance with his arm!!”

@AdamClarke19

“Crazy decision”

@Jobrad15

“100 million % penalty his arm was away from is body and was right behind him to slot it in var shocking”

@stuartbarlow78

“Accidental or not. The handball gained an advantage, ultimately denying a goalscoring opportunity. Penalty!”

@pmwallace

“Penalty, had plenty of time to move his arm out of the way, no surprise not given.”

@JohnWil03821916

“If that’s against us it’s given.”

@PortsLeedsNI

Looking at the replies to this post from the official Leeds Twitter account, it seems that these Whites fans are adamant that they should have been given a penalty for handball during the game against Man United.

Do you think Leeds should have been given a penalty for Shaw's handball?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, with the fans debating about refereeing decisions after the match instead of the performances from the players on the field, this is a fairly disappointing aspect of the game and suggests that the match as an overall spectacle wasn’t that .
