Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has warned his Manchester United team-mates that they can’t repeat the sloppy Nottingham Forest performance against Arsenal.

Manchester United beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 on Saturday despite conceding two goals inside the first four minutes.

“It wasn’t the perfect start for us but we kept control, kept the ball and started doing the right things,” said Fernandes.

“They defended well with a lot of players and it was difficult to get through, but we got the result and that’s the most important thing.

“I knew we had time to change the situation, but we kept calm. We started to keep the ball at the back and gain confidence, and after that the game was always on our side.

“We created a lot of shots in the first half. Overall, the performance was really good apart from those [first] four minutes.

“We know what it means to be a Manchester United player. We know this shirt demands a lot and we are ready for that. The team showed great spirit, passion and desire. We just need to be aware that we can’t concede so early.”
