Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has been slammed for showing poor body language during United’s draw against Chelsea on Saturday.

The midfielder was impressive for most of the match, as he made countless probing passes, however a resolute Chelsea back line didn’t let him through.

With the match already over the 60th mark, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer made two substitutions, bringing in Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani.

This meant that Bruno Fernandes had to shift to the right side of the pitch, but according to Steve McClaren, who watched the game at Old Trafford, the redeployment didn’t go down well with Fernandes, and he couldn’t hide it.

Speaking on talkSPORT, McClaren said, “I’ve been watching Bruno Fernandes and he’s disappointed.

“He’s disappointed because he’s been taken out of the middle and he’s out on the right-hand side.

“I saw it last week against Newcastle, when he went out wide, and I’m seeing it again now.

“His body language is not good, he’s not getting involved.

“He needs to be in the game and on that right-hand side he’s not moving from there, he’s got to move from there, he’s got to get his head up and get back into the game and affect the game.

“At the moment he’s just standing out on the right and he’s making it very easy for Ben Chilwell.”
