How Cristiano Ronaldo reacted after Bruno Fernandes missed Man Utd penalty in Villa loss

Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the first players to offer up their condolences to a distraught Bruno Fernandes, who had just missed a penalty to rescue a point against Aston Villa. There had been fierce debate among the football world as to who would be on spot-kick duties for United, and although that question was answered on Saturday afternoon, it remains to be seen what impact the miss will have going forward.

Villa dramatically took a late lead through centre-back Kortney Hause, giving United little time to respond.

The goalscorer was then at fault for the stoppage-time penalty, handling the ball in the area which presented the Red Devils with a golden opportunity to draw level.

Since Ronaldo sealed his return to the club, constant debate surrounded who would be on set-piece duty, but it was Fernandes who picked up the ball. 

Despite his exemplary record from the spot which only saw him miss once before in a United shirt, he blazed it wildly over the bar.
