Man United fans make demand as Bruno Fernandes misses penalty

Man United fans make demand as Bruno Fernandes misses penalty

Manchester United fans have called for Cristiano Ronaldo to be on penalty duty after Bruno Fernandes missed an injury-time spot-kick in the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

United turned in a poor performance at Old Trafford to make it three defeats in four games in all competitions, as Aston Villa secured their first win at the Theatre of Dreams for 17 years.

Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire were forced off with injuries in the game and Hause powered home a header in the 88th minute to give Villa a deserved lead.

However United thought their luck had changed when substitute Edinson Cavani flicked on a header and it hit Hause’s out-stretched arm to give the Reds an injury-time penalty.

The question was about who would take it between Ronaldo and Fernandes, but it was the midfielder who picked up the ball and walked towards the spot to take it.

With Ronaldo watching on from the edge of the box, Fernandes blasted the ball high over the bar as Emiliano Martinez and Aston Villa celebrated their three points.

Fans reacted to the miss by demanding Ronaldo be put on spot-kick duty, despite it being only the second time Fernandes has failed to convert from 12-yards out in 23 attempts.
