– Everton thrice staged a dramatic comeback to secure a 3-3 draw at against Man United Old Trafford
– Calvert-Lewin struck late in the match to earn the Toffees a crucial point moments after McTominay appeared to have won it for United
– A clearly enraged Bruno Fernandes has now pointed out his side’s frailties especially in defence that is costing them points
– The Red Devils remain second on the standings with 45 points, two behind rivals Man City
Bruno Fernandes has taken issue with his Man United teammates following the side’s dramatic draw against Everton on Saturday, February 6, at Old Trafford.
Coming out their midweek 9-0 win over Southampton, United nearly put their tie against the Toffees to bed in the first half only for the visitors to spring a comeback twice to earn a point.
The Red Devils cruised to a comfortable lead at the break thanks to Edinson Cavani opener and Bruno’s stunner but the game turned on its head just minutes into the second half as Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez drew Everton level.
Scott McTominay looked to have bagged United’s winner with his 70th-minute header but saw it cancelled out by Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s last kick of the match.
The Everton striker looked to be in the right place in time as he squeezed the ball past a helpless David de Gea to ensure the tie ended in a draw.
And in an apparent disappointment with United’s defence, Fernandes has come out to claim his side are conceding far too many goals.
“I think we gave away the result, we gave away the game twice,” Fernandes told Premier League Productions as cited by Metro UK.
“We are conceding goals every game, we are conceding goals a lot of times and at home we concede too many goals. Too many bad results at home and this can’t be possible,” he added.
The Portuguese playmaker noted the Old Trafford dwellers squandered a glorious chance to cart home all the three points as he sent his teammates a rallying call.
United’s home draw leaves them in second with 45 points, two behind leaders Man City who still have two matches to play.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Manchester United blew a chance to go level on points with Manchester City after conceding a dramatic late equaliser against Everton at Old Trafford.
United will only have themselves to blame after initially squandering a two-goal lead early in the second half.
Coming from the back of a 9-0 mauling of Southampton, the Red Devils were full of confidence coming into the game and dominated possession early on.
