Fulham has gone from leading Manchester United at Old Trafford to receiving three red cards and conceding a penalty in the blink of an eye.
Manchester United are now currently winning against Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final after Bruno Fernandes stuck away a penalty following a moment of madness from Fulham players and staff.
As the referee walked over to check the VAR monitor, Fulham manager Marco Silva said something in passing. The official, without missing a beat turned and brandished a red card before awarding a penalty for a handball by Willian and also sending off the Brazilian.
Then in a moment of madness, Alexander Mitrovic decided to square up with the referee and push him. Leaving the official with no choice but to send him off as well.
ABSOLUTE SCENES AT OLD TRAFFORD!! 😳
