Martin Jol was left cursing yet more Old Trafford misery after his Fulham team were denied a last-minute penalty against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Jol was in the opposing dugout seven years ago when Pedro Mendes' shot bounced a yard over the line but Tottenham did not get a goal. On Monday 27-year-old referee Michael Oliver ruled Michael Carrick had not bundled Danny Murphy over inside the box, which allowed United to claim a 1-0 win thanks to Wayne Rooney's 28th goal of the season.

"No-one in the stadium could say Danny Murphy dived and everyone in the stadium expected a penalty," said Jol.
