Former UNITED SAM Johnstone guardian made a number of excellent stops to deny its old club, included a splendid except for Fernandes’ initial kick. However, Var intervened as Johnstone was clearly out of his line and Fernandes was not wrong with his second attempt. The effort ended a 324 minute wait for a goal in the Premier League on the ground, and it was also a spot-looting from Portuguese against Tottenham.
