Bruno Fernandes takes aim at Man Utd’s defence after Everton draw

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has hit out at his own defence after they wasted the lead twice in their 3-3 draw with Everton.

Just days after thrashing Southampton 9-0, United were on course for another win having recovered well from a poor start to the second half.

United went into the break with a two-goal lead thanks to Edinson Cavani’s header and a sublime strike from Fernandes, only for Doucoure and James Rodriguez to draw Everton level within few minutes of the restart.

Scott McTominay put the Red devils ahead, only for Calvert-Lewin to react quickest when Lucas Digne’s free-kick was flicked on to seal Everton a point in the game.

The result means Solskjaer’s side have failed to properly close the gap to league leaders Manchester City, leaving Fernandes to hit out at his own team-mates.

‘I think we gave away the result, we gave away the game twice,’ he said. ‘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. ‘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.’

When asked if the team may have felt the game was won before Everton’s goal, Fernandes said: ‘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.’
