Midfielder Bruno Fernandes hit back at Manchester United’s critics following our FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

The Red Devils’ 19-match unbeaten run came to sad end as Chelsea booked their place in the final with a 3-1 win over us at Wembley.

The Portuguese has responded to critics who slammed the team for our poor display.

“We were not the best before and we are not the worst now!” said Fernandes.

“We are really sad about the result and losing the chance to win the FA Cup, something we had hoped for!

“Now it is time to gather forces and fight for our goal in the Premier League.”

Meanwhile, there was some good news for us as Tottenham beat Leicester 3-0 in north London. The Foxes remain in fourth ahead of United but a win over West Ham on Wednesday and Leicester City on the final day of the season will guarantee us a top-four finish.
