Bruno Fernandes sends message to teammates after Watford draw

Bruno Fernandes has blamed ill luck for the disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Watford on Saturday afternoon. 

The Red Devils were better in terms of possession and chances created throughout the game, but struggled to breakdown a stubborn Watford defence. 

Our best chances in the game came from two penalty shouts involving Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Elanga on either side of the break, with the Portuguese forward also having a goal ruled out by the match officials. 

Jadon Sancho also came close to scoring and Elanga also came close on different occasions, with the winger curling an effort just wide after coming on in the second period, but despite our best efforts, it just wasn’t working. 

Speaking to club media after the game, Fernandes said it’s important to learn from today’s failure and look ahead.

“Really disappointed about the result today,” the midfielder said. “I think the team performed well enough to get another result today.

“Obviously, I think we had many chances to score, but it was one of the days that you could try many many times but the ball was not going in.

“We have to look straightaway to the next game, understand what we can do better, what today didn’t work, and do it better in the next one.”
