Fans Think Axel Tuanzebe Was Wearing An Apple Watch While Playing For Manchester United

Axel Tuanzebe hit headlines tonight, with fans thinking he had his Apple watch on during tonight's game against Leicester City.

The academy product was handed a start at Old Trafford this evening as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made ten changes in preparation for the big match against Liverpool in 48 hours.

And while partnering Eric Bailly at the heart of United's backline, the 23-year-old had his watch on his wrist - clearly trying to get those extra steps in for the day.

Fans had never seen anything like this before in the Premier League and so there was a wave of reaction on social media:

Tuanzebe's watch wasn't actually an apple one, it was a whoop fitness tracker watch that is used by NFL players and professional golfers.

If Tuanzebe had alerts from the Premier League app on his watch, then it would have told him that his side's 2-1 defeat at home to Leicester means rivals Manchester City have now won the title for the fifth time.

City, who are set to receive a guard of honour against Newcastle on Friday, have now finished above United for eight straight seasons.
