Bruno Fernandes Hails David De Gea after United Defeat
The Premier League champions opened the scoring seven minutes into the game through Eric Bailly’s own goal, which the Ivorian turned in from Joao Cancelo’s cross. The Portuguese then sent in a hopeful clipped cross late in the first half, which Bernardo Silva clipped in from a tight angle.
There were countless poor defensive moments by Manchester United throughout a match that would have got far uglier if not for David De Gea. The goalkeeper produced a string of superb saves between the visitors’ goals. Bruno Fernandes said: “It’s always a bad time to concede a goal,” Fernandes said. “The problem is the way we concede goals. It’s too easy.”
He also said: “As I said many, many times, if it was not David again, the result could be much higher and worse for us.” “We have to protect better, David, because he is protecting us a lot, and we have to help him because he cannot make every game eight, nine saves and then still concede goals.”
