Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men fell further behind in the title race after slipping up at home on Saturday.

Bruno Fernandes was left frustrated after seeing his side drop points yet again as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford.

Manchester United were the first to strike, with Anthony Martial firing the ball into the top corner minutes before the break.

However, the Red Devils failed to protect their lead, or even find the back of the net again despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s introduction in the second half for that matter, in what was another uninspiring showing from them.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could’ve ended the day atop the league table but now find themselves down at third place with 14 points collected from the opening seven games.

“Of course, I think it’s difficult for us,” Fernandes told post-match, speaking to Man United’s reporter Stewart Gardner.

“We played really well in the first half, creating a lot of chances. In the second half, we made a mistake.

“We have to learn and the time is now. We cannot do this anymore. We did it so many times, we cannot slow the game down when we’re winning. We have to make it quicker, score once again, get one or two more goals and after that, maybe you can slow it down and make them run a bit more.

“We can be frustrated after the result, of course, but we have to come back after the international break and be ready for the next game.”
