Bruno Fernandes told his gamesmanship is 'getting out of control' after performance against Liverpool

Bruno Fernandes has been told his gamesmanship is getting 'out of control' following his showing for Manchester United against Liverpool.

Fernandes captained his side to victory as Erik ten Hag claimed his first Premier League win, beating Liverpool 2-1 on Monday.

The Portuguese starred in midfield, but also showed the ugly side to his game as he was booked for an awful dive and was lucky to escape another caution when he refused to give the ball to Mohamed Salah following his goal late on.

And his on-field actions are getting 'out of control', according to Tony Cascarino who believes he's taking his antisocial behaviour on the pitch to a whole new level.

"Fernandes takes antisocial behaviour on the pitch to a whole new level, and it all feels so cynical, and so premeditated," he wrote for The Times.

"We’ve all seen players do this before, but Fernandes must have set a new record for how long he held on to the ball.

"It was as clear a yellow card for ungentlemanly conduct as you will ever see, but Oliver appeared unprepared to show it, presumably on the basis it would mean sending Fernandes off."

Fernandes' actions during the match prompted a hilarious reaction from Jurgen Klopp, who jokingly strangled the Man United star after the final whistle.

The 27-year-old came in for criticism following his no-show against Brentford in their 4-0 defeat.

His outing led to Gabriel Agbonlahor saying he could be the 'worst' teammate.

But Fernandes brushed off his comments as he appears to have returned to his best.

Man United resume their campaign on Saturday when they face Southampton.
