Manchester United were comprehensively beaten by Liverpool 2-4 in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
On the back of the 2-4 defeat by Liverpool in the Premier League at Old Trafford, Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes reckoned that the team will learn from their mistakes. “We played side to side, we tried to do what we trained at. When you go down, playing 45 minutes against a team like Liverpool, we tried to push a little bit more and create danger,” Bruno told MUTV.
“We gave more space to them, and they took that space and we conceded another two goals. Everyone was disappointed in the dressing room because we made mistakes but we’ll learn from that and we have to keep improving. We are not at our best yet.”
On Thursday night, United took the lead when Fernandes’ shot took a wicked deflection before Diogo Jota equalised for the visitors. After two quick strikes by Firmino on either side of the half-time break, United were in big trouble. However, Marcus Rashford pulled one back to make it 3-2. But, Mohamed Salah secured the three points for Liverpool with a late strike.
“We started well, we score, we created more chances after that,” the 26-year-old said. “After we concede… We concede two goals from set-pieces and we know we have to work on that. We concede many goals this season from set-pieces. As I said, we are disappointed in the dressing room and we have to improve, we have to be better and we have to do it in the next game against Fulham to secure second place.”
“We score and we try to push a little more but that’s it. We gave more space and we conceded the fourth goal, this time on the counter. That’s it, it’s frustrating because we know, we’re trying to win the game but it was not enough.”
Despite the defeat, Bruno was proud to wear the captain’s armband. “I think everyone knows it’s the biggest honour to have the armband in the game for the club. I’m another one. I am proud of that. As I said, like after Paris, it’s a dream come true.”
Manchester United next play Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday (18th May).
