United’s misery was compounded by Fernandes’ late caution, for remonstrating referee, that will now see him miss next weekend’s daunting trip to Anfield.

‘Bruno Fernandes ranting and frothing at the mouth but the referee Peter Bankes not taking any nonsense, that’s the way it should be,’ Sutton told the BBC.

‘Let’s get it right, 3-0 flatters Manchester United, this could be five.’
