Bruno Fernandes involved in altercation with steward after Man Utd goal vs Chelsea

Sancho made the most of Chelsea star Jorginho’s error and raced through on goal. He coolly slotted the ball beyond Edouard Mendy to score his first-ever Premier League goal. 

The England star led his team-mates to the away section which is situated behind the goal at Chelsea’s stadium. 

Even the substitutes, including Cristiano Ronaldo, joined the group celebration. It was the first domestic goal scored during Michael Carrick’s caretaker tenure. 

Stewards attempted to prevent the United players moving too close to the fans and that appeared to annoy stand-in captain Fernandes. 

As the players moved away from the celebration, Fernandes could be seen on the TV footage attempting to push the steward away.

Fernandes moved away from Sancho’s grasp and moved the steward away with his forearm. None of the other United players appeared to notice the incident. 

Sancho’s goal opened the scoring versus the Blues but United were not ahead for long. 

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s poor challenge prompted referee Anthony Taylor to award a penalty, from which Jorginho made up for his previous error. 

The Italy international sent David de Gea the wrong way to level the scores just after the hour-mark. 

Fernandes and goalscorer Sancho were part of a controversial line-up selection by Carrick, who is widely understood to be passing the baton over to Ralf Rangnick following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“That’s when he’s purely at his happiest and smiliest, if you like. I’ve seen that in training and I’ve seen that in games already. The biggest thing for me the other night, and I said it, was the other side of his game and his attitude and his work-rate and his mentality.  

“I thought he put a whole performance together, the other night, and I was really pleased for him because, and we’ve said it before, It’s not always easy to just step into this club and perform, especially as a younger player.  

“He’s got a massive future ahead of him if keeps doing the right things, looks after himself and has the right attitude.  

“Who’s to say how far he can go and hopefully he fulfils every little bit of potential that he has.”
