Manchester United fans are disgusted with the manner which goalkeeper Sergio Romero was sent off in Tuesday evening’s shock Carabao Cup defeat to Derby County.
The Argentinian saw red in the 67th minute for handling the ball outside of the box, trying to clear it from an incoming Harry Wilson who was collecting a long ball. The sending off meant United had to finish the game with 10 men while keeper Lee Grant was introduced as a substitute.
Derby eventually took the lead through Jack Marriot with five minutes remaining but Marouane Fellaini equalised to send the match to penalties, which Frank Lampard’s side won 8-7.
United fans have, however, blamed much of the loss on the Romero incident in what was a rather worrying night for the Red Devils. José Mourinho’s men were also held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves at the weekend and now have a trip to West Ham United coming up on Saturday.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions from United fans:

Sergio Romero… No words… Lee Grant should just replace him permanently… He should go home to Argentina.

Red card: Sergio Romero is sent off for a handball outside of the box. Turning into an embarrassing night at Old Trafford.
