Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has warned his Manchester United teammates that they need to stop conceding easy goals and quickly learn from their mistakes after the disappointing 3-3 draw with Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.
Despite leading 2-0 at the interval, two quickfire goals from the Toffesd drew the game on level terms. Late goals from Scott McTominay and Dominic Calvert-Lewin for United and Everton respectively ensured the points were shared.
“I think we gave away the result, we gave away the game twice,” Fernandes told Premier League Productions shortly after the final whistle.
“Because after being 2-0 up at half-time, coming into second half in the way we did, it’s really bad.
“We are conceding goals every game, we are conceding goals a lot of times and at home we concede too many goals.
“Too many bad results at home and this can’t be possible.”
“I think we have to win this game after being 2-0 up, you have to win this game,” he added.
“It doesn’t matter how. You concede two goals and you come again and you score again.
“It’s impossible to concede another goal again, from a free-kick in the half of the pitch, we concede a goal from there and the way we concede…”
Asked how United can stop the flow of goals they’re conceding, Fernandes replied: “With performance.
“We have to perform to perform better, we have to be focussed, we have to be more humble, we have to do many things better.”
On whether United already felt the game was won, Fernandes responded: “Maybe this was the problem, I don’t know.
“I don’t feel that, I don’t know what my team-mates feel but we can’t feel that until the game is over.
“And as you see we concede the goal in the last seconds of the game.”
Fernandes later told MUTV: “I think we have time to lift again and everyone knows the past is the past and you can do nothing but the future is the future and you can do something.
“Everyone has to be ready, everyone has to learn from this game and put what we have learned from this game into the next one and try to win it.
“It will be a hard one and we have to win.”
