Bruno Fernandes on what went wrong for Man Utd against Liverpool
Bruno Fernandes has admitted that Man Utd lost 'a bit of control' in the second half of their 7-0 thumping at the hands of Liverpool.
The Red Devils had gone into the half-time trailing by just one goal, but went on to concede six in the second half, falling apart at Anfield and falling to their biggest ever Premier League defeat.
Speaking to Sky Sports, captain Fernandes has discussed what went wrong for Man Utd on the day, stating:
"Obviously it's very frustrating. I'm disappointed and sad because it's a really bad result. We came here with a different mindset before the game.
"I think the first half was really good from ourselves, we had a lot of chances and we controlled most of the first half. I think they didn't create that much but obviously the second half was not at our level.
"We gave too much space away, we gave them too much time and gave away too many counters to them and we know how much of a threat they are in those situations. It was just not our level and we know how much better we can be, how much quality we have, and now it's about going to the next game and getting a result.
When asked he felt that the team lost control and composure in the second half, Fernandes replied:
"I think the team tried to react but when you go forward and give away so much space to Liverpool, as I've said before, when we tried to go forward and tried to score goals we lost a bit of balance and a bit of control of our positions on the pitch."
