The Portuguese should be suspended for five games, according to Ref Support UK.

After tussling with Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool, Fernandes shoved linesman Adam Nunn in the back.

According to reports in the UK, the FA plans to spare the Portugal international any punishment for the incident since referee Andy Madley saw it happen.

Nevertheless, Ref Support UK, a group committed to independent referee training, support, and growth, is advocating for a five-match suspension for the former Benfica player and current Manchester United player.

"I think he's got to be looking at least a five-game punishment," Martin Cassidy, chief executive of Ref Support UK, told PA.

"Contacting a match official is a severe offence that needs to be handled seriously.
