Bruno Fernandes sends a warning to teammates as he pinpoints Man Utd problem.

Bruno Fernandes sends a warning to teammates as he pinpoints Man Utd problem.

Bruno Fernandes has warned his Manchester United teammates they must recover after dropping to their second home defeat in just 48 hours.

Manchester United followed up their 2-1 turnabout at the hands of the Foxes on Tuesday, with a 4-2 loss against arch-rivals Liverpool.

United grabbed the lead against the Reds, with Fernandes scoring his 27th of the season in all competitions, a new record for Premier League midfielders.

But it was then a case of common struggles rearing their head again as Liverpool netted twice before the break – both from set-pieces.

Diogo Jota scored the equalizer following a corner before Roberto Firmino was given the liberty of Old Trafford to nod home a Trent Alexander-Arnold freekick.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have now yielded 14 times from set-pieces not including penalties, with Leeds United the only top-flight team to have shipped more.

And Fernandes pointed to those weaknesses and reminded his teammates they must improve if they are to prove themselves as best of the rest behind Manchester City.

“We started well, we scored, we created more chances after that, but we conceded two goals from set-pieces and we have to work on that,” he told MUTV following the defeat.

“We’ve conceded too many goals from set-pieces this season and everyone is disappointed in the dressing room.

“We know we have to improve and do better and we have to do it in the next game because we want to secure second place.

“I think the performance was good, we kept the ball well, we played side-to-side, we tried to do what we trained.
“But when you go down 2-1 and you have to play 45 mins against a team like Liverpool, you give more space to them and they take that space, we concede another two goals.

“Everyone was disappointed in the dressing room because we made big mistakes, but we learn from that and we have to keep improving and understanding we are not at our best yet.”

Solskjaer also recognized that United have plenty to work on from a defensive viewpoint, with the back-four struggling in the light of captain Harry Maguire’s loss.

“Today, the goals we conceded, set-plays, disappointing. That’s a set situation that we don’t defend well enough,” Solskjaer explained.

“It’s something we have to work on because we’ve conceded too many goals from it.
“Football would be really boring if nobody made a mistake and that’s the whole idea of football. You try to eradicate them and work on them, but we’ve conceded too many goals.

“We could have avoided some of them, especially the timings of them.
“We’ll work on it, brush up on a few details, pay attention to details on set-plays, and put the players in the frame of mind that these set-plays are vital in football.

“A third of goals come from set-plays in football and we can do so much better. And when we do that we’ll improve.”
