Bruno Fernandes was left ‘fuming’ by a ‘greedy’ Manchester United teammate during Sunday’s FA Cup clash against Newport County.

The Red Devils took an early 2-0 lead in their fourth-round clash against the League Two side thanks to goals from Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo.

United could have put the game to bed and gone 3-0 up on 19 minutes but Alejandro Garnacho struck the crossbar.

The Argentine should have passed across goal to either Fernandes or Rasmus Hojlund for a simple tap-in but instead decided to go for glory.

After Garnacho’s effort cannoned off the bar, Fernandes and Hojlund appeared to turn their backs on him in disgust.

Danny Murphy, on commentary duties for the BBC, said: ‘Fernandes is fuming and I think he’s right.

‘If Garnacho squares that then Fernandes has a tap-in and the game is done. It’s a bit greedy.

‘If Garnacho squares it, it’s a goal, 3-0, and it’s game over. 10 minutes later, it’s game on [after Newport scored to make it 2-1].’

Meanwhile, Murphy singled out United defender Luke Shaw for praise in the clash at Rodney Parade.

‘I always think Man Utd look a better side when Shaw is in the team,’ Murphy added. ‘He’s good defensively, calm on the ball and gets forward well. They have missed him.’
