Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes breaks silence after being substituted in Liverpool stalemate

Man Utd: Solskjaer says Pogba is ‘prime example’ of improvement

Manchester United drew 0-0 with Liverpool in the Premier League yesterday with Bruno Fernandes struggling to make an impact at Anfield. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side remain top of the table after the result but Manchester City are now just a point behind.

Fernandes had a glorious opportunity to win the game only for a fine save from Alisson thwarting him.

The midfielder was taken off towards the end of the match to give Mason Greenwood an opportunity.

Fernandes reacted angrily to the decision as neither team were able to make the breakthrough.

After the match, the 26-year-old took to social media to post a cryptic message.

He posted: “One day, when you look back, you will see that the most beautiful days were those you fought on. #MUFC @ManUtd.”

Fernandes seems to be reflecting that the draw could end up being a good result as United look to challenge for the Premier League title.

The Red Devils have not been in contention since Sir Alex Ferguson retired way back in 2013.

Solskjaer has his side playing well though and with Fernandes in superb form they have every chance of keeping up with Manchester City and Liverpool.

After the match, the United boss thought it was a missed opportunity to not beat Liverpool.

He said: “I know we can play better, but we’re still coming away from here with a point which shows how far we’ve come in a year or even six months.

“We didn’t impose ourselves on the game, especially in the first half. I think we grew into the game and towards the end you felt ‘yeah, it’s here for us to win’ and we created two massive chances and they were two brilliant saves by the keeper.

“I’ve got to be honest to say I’m a bit disappointed at the moment, but still you know you’re playing against a fantastic team and they had more of the possession.

“But still you want to go here and you know the injuries they’ve had lately, you think you go here and get a result. We didn’t, but a point might be okay if we win the next one.”

United return to action against Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday (8.15pm).
