The men of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are four points more than at the same stage last season, but have stumbled on the international break.
Manchester United have won four of their first five Premier League games, but last weekend’s 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa was followed by Saturday’s frustrating 1-1 draw with Everton all ‘Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes knows they need to reinforce their ideas if they want to win their first trophy since 2017 and is sick of repeating the same post-match frustrations.
“Of course, I think it’s really difficult for us,” said the Portuguese.

THE MANCHESTER MUST LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES
He said ‘We played really well in the first half, we created a lot of chances. In the second half we slow down again. Once again we make this mistake. We have to learn.
‘We have to learn and the time is now because we can’t do it anymore. We have done this many times. We cannot slow down the game when we are winning.
‘The team has to do it faster, score one more, two goals and then, okay, you can slow down and run a little more.
“But now we have to move on. It doesn’t make sense … we can be frustrated with the result, of course, but we have to come back after the national team and then be ready for the next matches. ‘
The Portuguese star says he doesn’t shirk responsibility in his comments, raising his hands for the poor corner that led to the Everton break which saw Andros Townsend nullify Anthony Martial’s lead.
In his words, “It’s a really bad angle on my part,” he said. ‘We don’t close well enough outside the box, we don’t release the ball, we don’t commit a foul, many mistakes starting from my corner.
‘We should do it better and we should learn because this is not the first time this has happened.
MANY THINGS NEED TO BE DONE BETTER IN MANCHESTER UNITED
‘We have to do better next time because now we have to do something, we have to change something because something doesn’t work to concede a lot of counter-attacks.
‘It’s about us players on the pitch doing something. It’s not about someone else.
‘We have to commit a foul, we have to stop the game, I have to take a better angle. Many, many things need to be done better. ‘
The draw increases the manager’s control, but the day was not entirely bad, with Martial scoring the first goal for United in eight months.
“It’s nice to have Anto score again,” Fernandes told MUTV.
‘We are happy for him because it is not easy for Anto. ‘Sure, he was playing a lot. Two seasons ago he was the team’s top scorer, so it’s hard for him not to play as many games as he wants.
“But when he comes in he shows he’s ready. It proves once again that it can be an important part for us and will continue to be so in the future. ‘
United travel to Leicester after the international break, while Everton will host West Ham backed by an impressive performance at Old Trafford.
Townsend celebrated by drawing inspiration from Cristiano Ronaldo after the equalizer, with the video assistant’s offside decision denying Yerry Mina a late win.
“When you go to Old Trafford and create the chances we’ve had, yes, we’re happy, but another day it could have been three points,” said the Everton top scorer.
Maybe the people on the outside didn’t give us a chance to look at our injuries, but we knew we could get a point or all three.
“We take the draw, we get together, we rest and we recover, hopefully, to recover some bodies and then, hopefully, to make a real attempt in the next month.”
