Fernandes failed to deliver as United fired blank, but kept a clean sheet - securing a point at Anfield to remain at the top of the Premier League table.
The Portuguese has been in terrific form this season, scoring and creating goals for fun. However, he was unable to dictate play during United's latest league fixture on Sunday.
He had his side's best chances, narrowly missing from a free-kick in the first-half and hitting Alisson from close range in the second-half.
Fernandes cut a frustrated figure after picking out Liverpool's Brazilian keeper in the 75th minute.
Of course, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team remain at the summit of the league, three points ahead of defending champions Liverpool and two points ahead of second-placed Leicester City.
But fans on social media pulled no punches on Fernandes, mocking the playmaker for going missing against Liverpool.

Fernandes goes missing in big games but I don't think it's his fault. Ole makes United play so defensively and dogmatic against top opposition

Don't ever compare Fernandes to De Bruyne because he doesn't perform in the big games. Penalty merchant
