Bruno Fernandes replied to criticism of his form against the Premier League’s “top six” following Sunday’s win over Manchester City. “People will still complain about something,” Bruno Fernandes said after scoring in Manchester United’s derby victory over Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Fernandes scored in United’s 2-0 victory over City on Sunday, converting a penalty after just 101 seconds at the Etihad Stadium to put an end to City’s 21-match winning streak.
When asked if he feels the burden of expectation, Fernandes, who has 16 goals and 10 assists in 28 Premier League games this season, said, “Every penalty has the same pressure for me.” “Whether it’s against City or another team, there’s always pressure to take a penalty.” Taking pens is often a challenge.
“I like it when there’s a lot of pressure. It’s a decent amount of strain. I knew exactly what I needed to do. Of course, I’m happy to score because I did it the right way with the right strength. For us, it’s all about winning. People will still have plenty to worry about. They would put open play no goals, it was a penalty [and say] it doesn’t count! As a result, the most important thing for us is to win the game. It doesn’t matter how you score; it’s a goal when the ball touches the net. I’ll be satisfied regardless of whether it’s me or someone else who scores.”
