Bruno Fernandes opens up on Man Utd dressing room after Everton victory

Bruno Fernandes has opened up on Manchester United’s leaders following their win over Everton.

Many saw the Premier League clash as must-win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following back-to-back losses in all competitions.

And it looked like things would go from bad to worse as Bernard had put Everton ahead though Fernandes equalised soon after with a fine header past Jordan Pickford.

The Portuguese star doubled his tally as he floated one in to turn the game around before the break.

The hosts piled the pressure on in the second half though could not find a way through with Edinson Cavani netting his first United goal in stoppage time to seal the win.

Donny van de Beek did not get on with the summer signing still not starting a Premier League game while Paul Pogba again started on the bench.

And Fernandes has praised his team-mates and their attitude following the crucial win at Goodison Park.

Fernandes told BT Sport: “We know inside the dressing room what we have to do, the players we have.

“Everyone needs to be a leader. Some are the mood leaders, they don’t talk too much but they’re doing the right things.

“And others need to speak a little bit more, to feel more part of the game.

“But the point is taking the three points is for everyone, not just for one player.”

United were shocked by Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League in midweek with Fernandes admitting today’s response was vital.

He added: “It was a great end to the game. We knew what we had to do [today] and we did it well.

"We did some mistakes in the second half, maybe we were a bit more confident and wanted to go forward and we didn't keep the ball too much. After the first goal we had a great reaction and we did what we had to do.

"We know our quality. We worked hard for the game. It was difficult to recover after the [Istanbul Basaksehir] game. This was the moment to do something in this game and we did it."
