Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes let his frustrations get the better of him when he was overheard shouting to the referee “It’s always him!” in Manchester United’s goalless draw with Chelsea.
Bruno was missing in the match as Kante didn’t give him any breathing space to control the midfield when Man United went away from home to Stanford bridge and the match ended a goalless draw.
Fernandes had just been dispossessed by N’Golo Kante and believed the midfielder had gone in on him unfairly, but referee Stuart Attwell decided to let the game continue since he saw nothing wrong with the tackle and waved away the protest.
Due to the level, Chelsea midfielder kept Fernandes quiet throughout the game, United legend Paul Scholes commented how the Portuguese midfielder’s always lack of involvement in big games.

Scholes said: “They’ve got to change it, the quality has got to be better,” Scholes told Premier League Productions. “The big players have got to step up. Again Fernandes today, I can’t remember him doing anything.
“I don’t remember him creating a chance, I don’t remember him having a shot on goal.
“I don’t remember [Edouard] Mendy, other than a couple of times, being brought into the game. So the quality is disappointing, they’ve got to get it better against these big clubs.”
