Enzo Fernandez mocks Mason Mount by tapping the badge in EPL’s latest comeback – The picture that sums up Man Utd woes: 4 players pointed towards unmarked Palmer

Enzo Fernandez mocks Mason Mount by tapping the badge in EPL’s latest comeback

Chelsea star Enzo Fernandez was seen taunting Mason Mount after his side’s late comeback win against Manchester United.

On Thursday night, the Blues scored two goals deep into added time to turn the game on it’s head and claim a 4-3 victory over their rivals at Stamford Bridge.

Mount, who made his return from a calf injury last month, was making his first appearance in west London since leaving to join their rivals for £60m in summer.

It was clear that there was a degree of resentment towards Mount – who came through Chelsea’s academy and made 195 appearances for the first-team – as players and fans alike made their feelings known.

In a video that emerged on X, formerly known as Twitter, Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez could be seen taunting the United midfielder after the final whistle.

A clip showed the Argentine, during his immediate post-match celebrations, turning towards Mount and smacking the Chelsea badge on his chest.

He also appeared to say something to the midfielder, though it remains unclear as to what was said.

Moreover, during the game, Fernandez was seen clashing with Mount – with fans suggesting he was trying to ‘trigger a reaction’ from the Red Devils star.

In a separate clip, Fernandez can be seen kicking the ball at Mount before the two midfielders went head-to-head, before eventually getting separated.

As Mount walked off from the encounter, he appeared to yell something in the direction of the 2022 World Cup winner as tempers began to boil over.

Interestingly, Mount and Fernandez were team-mates for half of the 2022-23 season – after the latter’s arrival during the January transfer window.

Earlier in the night, cameras caught the moment when a Chelsea fan lifted up a 2021-22 edition of their home shirt which read ‘JUDAS 19’.

Though Mount wears the number 7 for United, during his Chelsea days, he wore the number 19 – making it a clear reference by the home supporters.

The 25-year-old came on as a late substitute in the match – when United were leading the match – and was met by a chorus of boos from home supporters.

It was a night to forget for Mount, who spent four full seasons at Chelsea, as he watched his side capitulate deep into added time at Stamford Bridge.

Erik ten Hag’s side showed brilliant powers of recovery to lead in west London in the closing stages, having gone behind to two early goals by the Blues.

But with the finish line in sight, Diogo Dalot conceded a late penalty, which was dispatched by Cole Palmer, before the visitors switched off and allowed the former Manchester City winger to complete his hat-trick from a quickly-taken corner.

The winger’s three-goal haul on the night brought Palmer joint-second in the race for the Golden Boot with 16 goals, just two behind Erling Haaland.

Bruno Fernandes has admitted he predicted the nature of Chelsea’s sensational winner on Thursday after he was seen pointing towards Cole Palmer before the forward’s sensational winning strike.

The Blues secured a stunning comeback win over Manchester United in the final Premier League game of the midweek fixtures, with Palmer netting twice deep into stoppage time to earn a 4-3 victory.

United looked like they had the game in their hands, themselves coming back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2, but threw away the lead, with manager Erik ten Hag slamming his side in the aftermath.

Palmer’s final goal, his third of the game, came when Chelsea took a short corner, with the England man given space to shoot and doing so, netting via a deflection off Scott McTominay.

Red Devils captain Fernandes, however, explained how his side knew the strike was a possibility, yet still didn’t act to prevent the goal.

‘We had the game in our hands and we gave it away,’ he told TNT Sports after full time. ‘It’s frustrating.

‘It’s difficult to take. We had good control in the last few minutes, but they got two chances and scored two goals. From the corner we have to be much quicker. We knew beforehand they take corners and throw-ins quickly.’

Television replays showed four United players, including Fernandes, pointing at Palmer as he made his run to the edge of the box while Enzo Fernandez stepped up to take the corner.

McTominay and Mason Mount can also be seen identifying Palmer’s run – as well as goalkeeper Andre Onana – with no away player closing down Palmer until Mount made a late dash towards him.

Other players, meanwhile, including Marcus Rashford, can be seen facing the opposite way to the ball despite not directly marking any attacking players.

A number of players fell to the floor when the ball hit the back of the net, though Fernandes’ comments suggest they should have been aware of the short corner threat.

Ten Hag praised the game itself after full time, but suggested the wrong side won with his team just minutes away from victory.

‘Manchester United dominated the game but we made individual errors that cost us the game,’ he told BBC post-match. ‘We have to learn from it.

‘When you are a Man United player you should already know how to deal with this circumstance.

‘I enjoyed how my team were playing, it was fantastic. We dominated the ball, we dominated the opponent.’
