McTominay’s foul led to Chelsea taking the lead on 86 minutes as Jorginho slotted home his spot-kick before Casemiro levelled things up in the 96th minute.
The result at Stamford Bridge sees United stay fifth in the Premier League, one point behind fourth-placed Chelsea after the opening 11 games of the season.
‘It’s clumsy from McTominay,’ Neville told Sky Sports. ‘There’s no doubt that at the end [Armando Broja] throws himself to the ground but there is initial contact.
‘It’s that left arm, then it’s the right arm. I think that’s the problem for McTominay. He may feel like he’s not brought Broja down but optically it looks terrible.
‘He looked like he was hugging him and pulling him to the ground. There’s a way to stop people going across you as soon as you put your arm or two arms on someone you’re in trouble.’
