Bruno Fernandes says Manchester United should be “mad” after they could only draw 1-1 against Everton on Sunday.

The Portugal midfielder scored his third goal for United since arriving in January from Sporting Lisbon, but it wasn’t enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men who were held at Goodison Park.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s 13th league goal of the season after just three minutes came courtesy of a rebounded David de Gea earned the hosts a draw after Fernandes’ long-range strike beat Jordan Pickford.

Fernandes stood out as the dominant creative force and the £67.6million man looked every inch the player that Solskjaer has been crying out for.

The 25-year-old though wants improvement from United as they look to close the three-point gap on fifth-placed Chelsea and claim a place in next season’s Champions League.

“With this draw, we need to be a little bit mad, because we need to do much better,” said Fernandes.

“We need to win the games, because we want a place in the Champions League.

“So we need to try more, to improve more, and I think in the next games we will be much better.”

 

 

 

Solskjaer has revealed that his squad have been lifted by he midfielder’s arrival.

“That little spark he’s given us, he’s come in and the feeling around the place is better, ” Solskjaer said last week.

“He plays forward passes, he takes chances. He loses the ball a few times but he’s one of the players who looks good when he loses the ball because it’s a good attempt, and he wins the ball back. Delighted with him.”
