Fernandes Aims for a Strong End to the Season at Man Utd – Football News

Bruno Fernandes says Manchester United must “finish the season in the best possible way” after their 3-2 win over Newcastle United.

United’s youth players played the leading role: Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo and Rasmus Hojlund all scored three goals and closed the gap on Newcastle in the table.

Anthony Gordon and Lewis Hall both scored for the Magpies, the latter ensuring a nervy finish with his shot in injury time, but their lack of clinical penetration meant United took all three points.

Erik ten Hag’s side avoided a third straight defeat and a record 10th home defeat of the season and Fernandes insists they must find a way to finish on a positive note.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the United captain said: “Obviously the work is not yet finished. We have one more game in the Premier League, then the biggest game of the season, the FA Cup final.

“It was a tough season. This is what the table shows and we are all aware of it. The fans were great and supported us all season. We all appreciate what they have done for us.

“We want to do it better and differently. She [fans] It was great for us and we had to do something. We tried it, but the results don’t show that. We worked hard and everyone did their best. It is not enough and we must do more.

“We still have two games left and we have to make the most of it.

“There is no captaincy performance, it is a team effort. I am no different from others just because I have the armband. I always try my best and we always do our best for the club – no one hides the fact that we play for a big club and we have to improve our standards in every game.”

Despite returning to winning ways, United have now conceded 58 goals in the Premier League this season, the most in a single season in the competition.

Ten Hag wanted to shift the focus away from the faltering defense and instead onto the attacking players.

“Fantastic. Great goals. But it was a team effort the way we scored the goals. But I’m always happy about young players who are developing really well and have scored some brilliant goals,” he told BBC Sport.

“Newcastle has a lot of physical strength and you have to keep up, but you also have to play football.” We had found a really good balance here.

“It’s always nice to win a game. It is important to win the last game of the season at Old Trafford. The fans deserve this because they went through difficult times and always stayed with us.

“We are here together. We wanted to pay back the fans.”
