The Portuguese star missed his team penalty in the final moments.

Manchester United

manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has criticized the behavior of Aston Villa players before Bruno Fernandes' penalty kick.

Aston Villa gained three crucial points against Manchester United at Old Trafford with a single goal from Courtney Hause in the 88th minute. United had a good chance of leveling the game when the referee awarded them a penalty in extra time. Bruno Fernandes was ready to take the penalty kick, but the Villa players gathered around him and started a mindgame, which eventually resulted in Fernandes missing the penalty kick. After the game, Solskjaer criticized the behavior of the opposing players.

He told reporters:

"First of all, the way they get round the penalty spot, get around Bruno and all that, that's not to my liking, but I do understand it, it shouldn't be that way.

"Bruno is normally very good in those positions and unfortunately just missed this one. It doesn't get into Bruno's head, he's strong mentally and he'll step forward again."

Asked if Fernandes being his first choice to take the penalty. Solskjaer replied:

"The decision is made before the game, yeah."
