Aleksandr Mitrovic lost his head as Fulham were given three red cards in quick succession against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
Fulham were underdogs for the FA Cup quarter-final clash at Old Trafford.
An upset was on the cards with the west London side leading 1-0 with half-an-hour to play.
But disaster struck for Fulham with 20 minutes remaining.
Jadon Sancho went round Bernd Leno and looked as if he would net the equaliser, only for his effort to be blocked on the line by Willian, who appeared to use his hand.
The referee, Chris Kavanagh, gave nothing at the time but reversed his decision after consultation with the pitch side monitor.
Not only did he point to the spot, he also gave Willian a straight red card.
Fulham’s manager, Marco Silva, was sent off as Kavanagh was looking at the monitor.
While Mitrovic lost his head and was sent off after pushing the referee.
