Bruno Fernandes was left fuming after Manchester United were denied a penalty in their 2-0 defeat against Tottenham on Saturday.

United suffered their first loss of the new season as Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs side clinched their first home victory.

The United captain was seriously unhappy after feeling aggrieved at his team seeing their penalty claims waved away when the match was level at 0-0.

Argentinian winger Alejandro Garnacho burst forward, cutting in from the left and sending a shot goal-bound, before it struck the arm of defender Cristian Romero.

The incident was reviewed on VAR but no action was taken as referee Michael Oliver awarded a corner and play continued.

Fernandes drew comparisons to the fall-out of the coverage of Wolves being denied a penalty at Old Trafford on Monday when referees’ boss Jon Moss apologised to Michael O’Neil for not awarding a penalty when Andre Onana clattered into Sasa Kalajdzic.

The Portuguese playmaker wants an apology to be made to United for the decision against his team at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and issued a defiant call for action on Sky Sports after the match.

‘Last week they made a big thing on United not having a penalty against them [Wolves],’ said Fernandes.

‘I want to see what’s going to happen this week if it’s going to happen the same show they did last week.

‘I want to see if Jon Moss also comes to apologise to our dressing room like they said he did to the manager of Wolves,’ he added.

United’s penalty claims were valid after the ball clearly struck the arm of Romero who was positioned in the box at the time.

Tottenham’s Argentinian centre-back had his positioned away from his body at the time and was leaning back with both hands raised in the air.

Spurs would then go on to win the game as Pape Sarr and a Lisandro Martinez own goal clinched the hosts’ three points while Fernandes also missed a golden chance from close-range.

The 28-year-old’s lashing out at the coverage of Wolves’ spot-kick shouts comes after Premier League referees’ chief Howard Webb also contacted Wolves to admit a penalty should have been awarded.

The officials that oversaw the match at Old Trafford were also axed for this weekend’s round of English top-flight fixtures.

United will have a chance to redeem themselves from a difficult showing in London against Nottingham Forest next week.

Meanwhile, Spurs will be hoping to make it two wins on the bounce when they travel to Bournemouth.
