BRUNO FERNANDES has been mercilessly trolled online after his dreadful penalty miss against Aston Villa.

Just moments after Kortney Hause had given the visitors a shock lead, Manchester United won a penalty, giving them a chance to snatch a vital point.

Villa stopper Emiliano Martinez appeared to get into Fernandes' head by saying Cristiano Ronaldo should be taking the spot-kick.

But Fernandes - United's designated penalty taker before Ronaldo's return - took the ball, placed it on the spot and sent the ball into orbit.

The 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford was the club's first in the Premier League this season and came on the back of their defeat at the hands of West Ham in the Carabao Cup third round.

Bruno Fernandes has been brutally trolled for his horrific penalty miss during the 1-0 loss at home to Aston Villa.

Despite that, brutal fans have torn into the usually-reliable Fernandes - with a 'space' theme clearly the gag of choice.

One fan wrote: "News reaching us now is that an astronaut has been sent to space to recover Bruno Fernandes' ball."

Another said: "Breaking News: Bruno Fernandes' penalty ball has been spotted in space by NASA."

A third added: "Has anyone warned the International Space Station about Bruno Fernandes’ penalty yet?

One joked: "If Elon Musk or Richard Branson are still in space can they give Bruno Fernandes his ball back."

Iconic Twitter account 'Boring James Milner' even got in on the gags, writing: "Bruno Fernandes' penalty just landed in my back garden."

Fernandes looked crestfallen after his rare penalty miss but fans were still quick to poke fun.

Man Utd's misery was compounded by the fact league leaders Chelsea LOST 1-0 at home to Man City thanks to Gabriel Jesus' second-half winner at Stamford Bridge.

The Red Devils' loss moved them down to fourth, with Brighton potentially leapfrogging them on Monday night when they take on Crystal Palace.
