Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes took aim at Brighton defender Joel Veltman after Sunday's win.

Fernandes says he missed Marcus Rashford's equaliser against Brighton last night, despite being credited with the assist.

The United star was hacked down by Veltman after playing the ball, but the defender didn't receive a yellow card for the challenge.

Speaking to MUTV after the match, Fernandes said: "I didn't see it because someone almost broke my ankle!

"But I'm happy for the team, I am happy for Marcus. It was a good effort because as everyone knows he has come back from injury and he's helped us.

"This effort comes from everyone. The press for the first goal was good it made them do the wrong ball and I recovered the ball and passed to Marcus and he scores.

"Everyone is happy when we win and it doesn't matter who scores."
