Furious Bruno Fernandes sends message to Man Utd defence after Everton draw

Bruno Fernandes was left hugely frustrated after Manchester United conceded a last-minute equaliser to draw 3-3 with Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United went in a half-time 2-0 up, but were pegged back to 2-2 just minutes after the restart.

A Scott McTominay header put them back ahead on 70 minutes, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin struck deep into injury time to earn a point for the Toffees.

The result means United have won just one of their last four Premier League games, and leaves them two points behind leaders Manchester City having played two matches more.

And speaking to Premier League Productions at full-time, Fernandes, who scored United’s second with a superb effort, appeared to take aim at his team’s defence for the part they played in the draw.

Bruno Fernandes was clearly angry with Manchester United’s defence

“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 already felt the game was won before Everton’s late goal, Fernandes added: “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.”

United are next in action on Tuesday when they take on West Ham in the fifth round of the FA Cup before they return to Premier League duty the following Sunday with a trip to West Brom.
