Fantasy football managers fume over decision to award Man Utd’s Bruno Fernandes assist against Fulham

Bruno assist"The world of Fantasy Football can of course bring people together, but can also divide based on the smallest decisions from a yellow card costing a solitary point, or a player being awarded an assist which some believe was not justified.The latter example, meanwhile, saw Bruno Fernandes take centre stage against Fulham. The Portuguese attacking midfielder was deemed to have legitimately and intentionally set the ball up for Edinson Cavani to equalise, after an Ademola Lookman goal opened the scoring.Fernandes was played in down the left-hand side, before swinging in a cross which French goalkeeper Alphonse Areola could not hang on to. The latter parried it straight into the path of Cavani, who slotted home calmly.The official Fantasy Football site, at the time, stated that the goal’s assist had yet to be confirmed, after the significant touch from Areola. Goal – CAVANI

Assist – TBC
