Fernandes thinks Man United can take positives from ‘tough’ Arsenal loss

Bruno Fernandes believes Manchester United can take positives from the club’s ‘tough’ 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates.

Erik ten Hag’s side suffered a second defeat of the Premier League campaign after conceding two late goals at Arsenal, with Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus scoring in stoppage-time to snatch a dramatic win for the Gunners.


Marcus Rashford had handed Manchester United the lead with a fine first-half strike, but Martin Odegaard equalised within seconds of the restart.

Alejandro Garnacho thought he had won the game for the Red Devils late on after racing through to score, but the teenager saw his effort ruled out by VAR.

Fernandes admitted his side’s late loss was difficult to accept, but believes there were plenty of positives from United’s performance in north London.

“It is always tough to lose the way we lost. We conceded the late goal after trying to get the draw,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.

“They are a good team, they created a lot of problems for us. It was a good game for both teams but they got the points in the end.

“I felt the game was balanced. They had some spells on the ball but we wanted them to have that, we knew we could create the danger on the counters.

“It is what it is, if it is an offside we can’t get on that. It was a good game, I am disappointed by the result, but the performance of the team, the passion was there. If we keep doing this consistently we will get results.

“It is 11 v 11, home or away doesn’t change anything. We had a really good game, it wasn’t perfect as we didn’t get the win but the spirit was right, the mentality, the desire, everyone doing the job the manager asked for.

“Sometimes the details change the game. It is not perfect to lose but I think we can take a lot of positives from this game.”
