Did Bruno Fernandes get fouled in the build up to Southampton’s goal against Manchester United? Well, its split opinion online.
Che Adams scored from distance to open the scoring at St Mary’s on Sunday.
But Man United fans aren’t happy with the game being allowed to carry on following Jack Stephens’ challenge on Fernandes.
The Portuguese star was robbed off the ball, with Stephens going through him to retrieve the ball before setting up his side’s attack.
Breakthrough for Southampton! 😇

From there, Stephens picked out Moussa Djenepo who played a pass to Adam Armstrong, who set up Adams for the goal.
The decision NOT to blow for a foul was the main takeaway from the first half.

On Southampton’s goal, one tweeted: “Undeserved, clear foul on Fernandes.”
A second wrote: “Bruno was too soft on the ball.”
A third added: “Bruno at fault, playing netball expecting a foul for nothing.”
Was it a foul on Fernandes? Let us know.
