Manchester United fans faced more humiliation during their clash with Brighton – aside from shipping three goals at home – as Bruno Fernandes was left playing centre-back.
United were chasing the game against the Seagulls, and fans inside the stadium had already started to turn against Erik ten Hag when he subbed off Rasmus Hojlund.
And that discontent moved online, when eagled-eyed football fans spotted the Dutchman had deployed Fernandes – who had been their creative output – as a central defender.

"Bruno Fernandes, our most creative player playing as right centre back…state of this club right now," one fan fumed. While a second shared: "He lost me when he subbed Hojlund off and played Bruno at centre-back!"
"Bruno Fernandes was playing Centre Back. I'm tired," a third said. And another added: "Rangnick made some crazy decisions but have any been as bad as Maguire up top and Bruno centre back?"

United have now fallen into the bottom half of the table, winning just two of their opening five Premier League matches.
