Harry Maguire equalised soon after, but it looked like it wouldn't be United's night when they were awarded a penalty on 58 minutes.

Fernandes: What Next?
United are far from fixed, but their midfield looked far more settled and organised in this contest and Fernandes was at the heart of that. United need to continue to look at the things that Fernandes does best and continue to exploit the in order to progress.
