Video: Aubameyang escapes yellow card for foul on Bruno Fernandes as these Man United fans blast ‘shocking’ decision

Some Manchester United fans have been left furious after Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang escaped a yellow card for a nasty challenge on Bruno Fernandes.

In the 28th minute of the tie, Fernandes was charging forward when Aubameyang stopped the playmaker in his tracks with a rough slide tackle.

Mike Dean rightfully awarded a free-kick but didn’t book Aubameyang, the first-half has already seen yellow cards for Fred, Gabriel Magalhaes and Rob Holding.

Aubameyang was lucky to escape without a card here. There was no ill will between the stars though, as the striker apologised to Fernandes immediately.

Here’s how some United fans reacted to the moment:

Are some of the Man United faithful exaggerating this call or did Aubameyang really deserve a yellow card in what’s been a very scrappy game so far?
