Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte, unhappy with Wilson’s first goal, refused to talk about referee Jarred Gillet.

However, Howe felt that United should have had two penalties. Joelinton looked to be barged over in the box by Emerson Royal early in the game. Also, Joelinton headed on to Royal’s arm shortly before Harry Kane’s second-half goal.

Asked if he felt that the handball was a penalty, head coach Howe said: “Yeah I did, actually. I thought that was potentially a penalty for us. I also thought the one on Joelinton in the early stages was a penalty. I haven’t had the benefit of a replay there, so I could be wrong.”
