Fernandes, who had a 100% record from the spot for Manchester United going into this game, stepped up to take his 11th penalty for the club. The Portugal international abandoned his trademark hop and instead used a shorter run-up - although it is worth noting that he had scored from 12 yards when he previously used that alternative technique.
