Aleksandar Mitrovic shoves the referee as Fulham collapse with THREE red cards and concede two goals in a chaotic five minutes at Man United
Fulham had Aleksandar Mitrovic, Willian and manager Marco Silva sent off in the space of a minute as they imploded at Manchester United.
The Cottagers were on course for a famous FA Cup victory with Mitrovic putting them ahead at Old Trafford – only to see their hopes dashed within moments.
Fulham were cruising and well above when the game changed just before the 70th minute.
Antony broke the right and squared the ball for Jadon Sancho, whose goal effort was blocked by Willian’s arm.
The referee gave a corner first, only for a VAR review to be signaled.
Chaos ensued as Fulham’s Protestant boss Silva was sent off by referee Chris Kavanagh for saying something untoward while the official checked the monitor.
Kavanagh then signaled a penalty and showed Willian a red card.
This prompted a furious outburst from Mitrovic who stormed into Kavanagh and was also shown a red card.
It then went from bad to worse for Fulham as United scored twice within the next two minutes.
Bruno Fernandes netted the resulting penalty before Marcel Sabitzer overturned the tie moments later.
Fernandes sealed a 3-1 win for United in stoppage time to book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals.
