Bruno Fernandes Criticised For Foul On Richarlison And Compared To Harry Kane

Bruno Fernandes was being compared to Harry Kane on Wednesday night, after Manchester United's win over Everton, and it wasn't in a good way.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side continued their excellent away form this season by beating Carlo Ancelotti's team in the Carabao Cup quarter final, to book a semi-final with local rivals Manchester City.

United had more of the chances, especially in their opening 20 minute domination, but also had to ride their luck, especially with goalscorer Edinson Cavani being lucky to stay on.


Fernandes was also criticised for his shenanigans as he shove on Richarlison sent the Brazilian forward into Eric Bailly, who was jumping for the ball, with the defender making contact with the Everton star's head.

The former Watford forward lay on the ground for a moment before he was taken off, looking rather groggy, for a head injury.

Fans on Twitter weren't happy with the United midfielder's foul and Spurs fans compared the incident to the criticism that Harry Kane has had for his repeated dangerous pushes on opposition defenders.



Fernandes got no punishment for his involvement in the incident and nor did Bailly and the failure to punish United players by the ref eventually came back to bite the Toffees.

Cavani scored the important opening goal in the 88th minute and Anthony Martial scored late in injury time to wrap up the win for Solskjaer.

The manager and his team will be hoping for a better result in this season's semi-final, having lost to City in the same stage last season, but they may have used up all their luck on Wednesday night.

Solskjaer also lost FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals last season and will be desperate to win United's first silverware since 2017.
