Bruno Fernandes tells Pep Guardiola to shush during touchline row in Man Utd win

Bruno Fernandes appeared to put his finger to his mouth and tell Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to shush during the Manchester derby.

Manchester United star Fernandes shone again for the Red Devils, providing the assist for Anthony Martial to score the opening goal of the game in the first half.

City dominated possession, especially in the second half, though United defended stoically throughout at Old Trafford.

And they doubled their advantage with virtually the last kick of the match as Scott McTominay capitalised on an error from Ederson to fire home from around 35 yards.

Guardiola was consistently stood on the sidelines throughout the match trying to urge his side on against their fierce rivals.

And January signing Fernandes seemed to shush the Spaniard after a few seconds of dialogue between the pair.

Late on in the match, Fernandes was speaking to Guardiola before walking away and appearing to put his finger to his mouth.

Fernandes was subbed shortly after with McTominay wrapping up the victory late into stoppage time.

United’s win was their third over City this season having done the Premier League double and also won a Carabao Cup clash earlier this campaign.

“It was dogged – not pretty – but United have showed a lot of pride and spirit."

While Keane’s fellow Sky Sports pundit, and ex-Man City defender, Micah Richards added: "City had a lot of possession but just lacked that cutting edge.

“In fairness to United, they defended really well. I thought [Luke] Shaw, [Brandon] Williams and [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka were fantastic.

“City just couldn't break them down."

Manchester United return to action on Thursday as they travel to Austrian outfit LASK in the Europa League.
