The match against Liverpool left a deep scar on Manchester United. The reason was the 7-0 loss at Anfield against the arch-rivals. The defeat was United’s biggest defeat since 1931.

Trust Bruno Fernandez
After the humiliating defeat at Anfield last weekend, Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes was criticized for his immature attitude on the pitch. Fernandes made several signs of wanting to give up as goals against Man Utd kept coming back.

“Of course (Fernandez is still captain). I think he’s had a great season struggle. He is the reason we are here now because of the energy he brings to the team,” said Ten Hag.
“He inspires the whole team. It’s just that nobody is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes and still has to learn.” The Dutch director concluded.
