Manchester United fans weren’t comfortable with Phil Jones taking a penalty kick

Manchester United fans knew they were going to lose to Derby County the moment they saw defender Phil Jones walking up to take the eighth penalty kick of the shootout.

That is the feeling of many United fans on Twitter as they try to process the result from the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening that saw José Mourinho suffer defeat to Frank Lampard’s Rams.

The match headed to penalties after it finished as a 2-2 draw. A 95th minute equaliser by Marouane Fellaini kept United alive after it looked that Derby had snatched a victory with Jack Marriott’s late goal.

After eight successful penalties by Derby, Jones stepped up to try and make it 8-8 but goalkeeper Scott Carson kept the England international out, giving the Championship side a historic victory at Old
Trafford.

United fans, however, weren’t comfortable at all when Jones lined up the penalty and some even expected him to miss.

Here are some of the reactions to the miss from United fans on Twitter…
