Fernandes had equalised proceedings via the penalty spot after Ilkay Gundogan put City ahead after just 14 seconds.

Apart from the penalty which Jack Grealish was adjudged to have handled inside the area, there were a raft of other contentious decisions in the first 45.

Silva's issue with Fernandes

Silva appeared to remonstrate with the officials when Fernandes attempted to calm him down by putting his arm around his neck.

Silva angrily rejected Fernandes' advances before pushing his colleague away. Gundogan added a second goal after the break which turned out to be the winner.

Whatever the issues between the two were, it was seemingly settled at halftime as Fernandes walked over to City's camp to congratulate Silva.

Fernandes has, in the past, talked passionately about the bond he shares with the City midfielder.

"I have a great relationship with Bernardo. When we won at home, he came to shake my hand. He said to me, ‘When you lose at home, you shook my hand, everybody's hand, so I have to do it, even when I lose," as quoted by GMS.

The duo will possibly link up for international duty when Portugal take on Bosnia and Iceland as the race to qualify for next year's Euro Championships takes shape.

Fans fight during FA Cup final

At the same time, Sports Brief has reported that a shocking video of Manchester United and City fans appearing to exchange blows at Wembley Stadium during the FA Cup final has surfaced.

However, the match was riddled with unpleasant scenes, with a section of fans from both teams filmed fighting in the stands.

Fans with opposing red and blue shirts appeared to throw punches on the concourse at the stadium in London.
