Nobody can stand losing. Manchester United fans hate it, and so should the players.

Bruno Fernandes is one of those. The Portuguese star was a substitute in the 1-0 Carabao Cup loss to West Ham.

Fernandes played the final 19 minutes and made 27 touches in that time as he tried to influence the game and force an equaliser.

He did have the ball in the back of the net after taking a drop-ball into his own hands, dribbling through on goal and scoring, but the strike was disallowed.

Fernandes sent a message out to supporters after the game expressing his frustration.

Teammate Diogo Dalot was the first United player to post on social media after the defeat.

 

He said that United’s stars gave it their all and would keep on working hard.

United did play well after a poor start to the game. The team managed 27 shots at goal in total and just could not find a way through.

Not enough of these attempts were on target, just six in total. This was essentially United’s second string side with 11 changes made to the team which started at the weekend.

Even so, there is no excuse really for a cup exit at home, and Fernandes’ disappointed message sums it up well.
