Manchester United fans react to the on-field incident between Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes against Chelsea

Manchester United fans are divided in their opinion regarding an on-field incident between Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes yesterday night.

United took on Chelsea in the standout fixture of the weekend in the English Premier League. With just 11 minutes to go, United were in possession of the ball and were in search of a winner.

Fernandes took possession on the left flank and was immediately closed down by two Chelsea players. He indicated Shaw to overlap on the flank and open up the angle for a cross.

The left-back however refused, much to Fernandes’ frustration. Fans were quick to notice the incident and took to Twitter to react to it.

While some blamed the defender for not taking the opportunity, others defended him for not abandoning his post.

While Fernandes’ attempt to go for a win is admirable, had United lost the ball with Shaw out of position, we would have been privy to a Chelsea counterattack.

As a defender, Shaw has to have a safety-first approach, and his decision to disagree with his teammate is not without reason.

Rather than be frustrated and kick the ball away to another teammate, Fernandes should have instead kept his cool. Despite not overlapping, Shaw had enough space to make the cross had the ball been passed to him.

We take a look at how some of the fans reacted.
