I noticed what Bruno Fernandes did following Erling Haaland’s miss against Manchester United; it spoke everything

According to manchestereveningnews, Manchester United’s top four ambitions were all but dashed in Sunday’s derby against rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, losing 3-1. Despite grabbing an early lead with Marcus Rashford’s Goal of the Season candidate, United were pulled back only 10 minutes into the second half by Phil Foden, who submitted his own proposal for the aforementioned accolade. He scored a spectacular attempt from outside the box with his left foot.

From that point on, City increased the pressure, making a second goal seem likely. It happened with exactly 80 minutes left on the clock, with Foden once again leading the celebration. City added a third in stoppage time, thanks to an unavoidable goal from Erling Haaland. He had missed a sitter just before halftime, but he made up for it with an ice-cool finish.

It was only natural for City to win after dominating proceedings with 73.7% possession. They also attempted 27 attempts compared to United’s three. Despite United’s tenacious first-half performance, their most recent trip to the Etihad Stadium underscored the gap between the two teams. With that stated, here are some of the moments from the 192nd Manchester Derby that you may have missed.

Fernandes was surprised by Haaland’s miss

How did Haaland fail to bring City back level at halftime? Only he will know the solution to this question. After Foden headed the ball down within the six-yard box, Haaland tried to add to his five-goal total against Luton Town with the goal at his disposal. Instead, the Norwegian, who scored a hat-trick when City and United faced off at the Etihad Stadium last season, hoisted the ball over the top, leaving everyone inside wondering the same question: ‘How?’

Everyone anticipated the net to bulge, so much so that United captain Bruno Fernandes lifted his arms, looking ready to express his fury and dismay at surrendering so close to halftime. But, as the ball sailed past the crossbar, he instantly lowered them. His action suggested that he was about to bury his face in his hands in frustration. He was able to breathe a big sigh of relief, as was everyone else in red.
