Felipe grabs Bruno Fernandes by the neck and escapes red card

Manchester United progressed to the FA Cup quarter-finals tonight after beating Nottingham Forest.

Midfielder Casemiro scored the only goal of the match in the final minute of normal time to set up a fiery encounter between United and Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-final.

A huge talking point of the match came in the 99th minute when Nottingham Forest’s Brazilian centre-back Felipe appeared to have ‘throttled’ the neck of Bruno Fernandes.

Bruno Fernandes is known for his sly behaviour on the pitch, he can often land opponents in trouble by using his sneaky tactics, Felipe on the other hand has been a hot-head for many years since his Atletico Madrid days.

One Twitter user commented: ‘Ex-Atletico Madrid player, what do you expect?’

Another user said: “Karma is a b*tch”

What are your thoughts on the incident? Did Felipe get away with one there?
