Kevin Campbell expressed his displeasure with the way Lisandro Martinez and Varane defended against Gabriel Jesus during the game.

He tells Football Insider:

“The Man United players were getting physical. You could see that from the first challenge [Lisandro] Martinez put in on Gabriel Jesus.”

“I have never seen [Raphael] Varane be that physical with a striker. He had Jesus in a headlock at one stage. Do not get me wrong. Jesus is physical with them as well. He is very good using his body. He is strong and quick.”

“[Scott] McTominay was in and around Jesus as well. He got booked for something out of WWE. The treatment of Jesus was serious. It was only a matter of time before Jesus lost his head.”
