Fernandes calls on team mates to look in the mirror following City loss

Bruno Fernandes has called on his team mates to look at themselves in the ‘mirror’ and understand what they can do better for Manchester United.

It was another chastening experience for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side after the scars from two weeks ago against Liverpool were reopened by Manchester City.

United could barely lay a glove on their fierce rivals and the gulf in class between the two sides became more and more apparent as the game wore on.

The 2-0 loss against Pep Guardiola’s side meant we ended the day nine points behind league leaders Chelsea, following Thomas Tuchel’s side’s 1-1 draw against Burnley.

Fernandes claimed that everyone at the club was aware that the performance was yet again ‘not good enough’, and that it drew comparisons to the 5-0 hammering, suffered at the hands of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Speaking via MUTV after the game, Fernandes said: “Obviously everyone is frustrated about the result and about the performance too.

“We know we can do much better and we know this is not good enough for a player who represents this big club and we have to look in the mirror.

“I’m saying the same things probably from the last interview, but that’s it, we have to look at ourselves and understand what everyone, when we’re at home, understand what we can do better to help the team.”
