Compilation Of Bruno Fernandes' Disasterclass In Front Of Erik Ten Hag vs Crystal Palace Is Extremely Worrying

Bruno Fernandes dropped one of the worst performances of his Manchester United career during Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace - in front of new manager Erik ten Hag.

Wilfried Zaha scored the only goal of the game at Selhurst Park to bring United's worst season in Premier League history to a miserable end.

It was Fernandes' misplaced back-pass that put Zaha through on goal and it was one of a number of mistakes he made in the game.

Ten Hag was in the crowd watching his new side on and Fernandes, who is often one of United's best players, had an absolute nightmare.

Nothing was coming off for the 27-year-old in the final third and his set pieces were wayward throughout.

He attempted to track back and win the ball, but in doing so he gave away two fouls and earned a yellow card.

Fernandes also lost possession 27 times, with possession football being a calling card of ten Hag.

Fans have reacted to the viral video, set to 'We Don't Talk About Bruno' from Disney's 'Encanto', and wonder what it means for the midfielder's future.

One commented: "Ten Hag watched this abysmal performance wonder what he thinks."

Another said: "They lost Paul Pogba and gave the keys to this guy. Good luck Erik."

A third tweeted: "Such an average player."

While someone put: "Ten Hag has to do a miracle to change his playing style."

Fernandes signed a new contract in April which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2027.

The Portugal international joined the Red Devils from Sporting CP in 2020 and helped them to consecutive top four finishes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It's all gone wrong this campaign however and interim boss Ralf Rangnick criticised Fernandes for his role in the Palace goal.

The outgoing coach said: "I think we had three good opportunities to score ourselves in the first-half but we didn't and, especially in the first-half, we had too many unforced errors and bad giveaways, that is the way we conceded the goal.

"In fact, it was our assist, the goalscorer, in the end, was Zaha but the ones who gave the assist were ourselves.

"There was a throw-in - just keep the ball into our own half - and the way we defended that shot was also not the way that you have to defend in this league and that's why we were trailing again 1-0."

United finished sixth and will be playing Europa League football once again come September.
