Man Utd midfield ace Fernandes: "I don't need to think about a hat-trick, I need to think about the future."
Midfielder Bruno Fernandes expressed his utmost joy at Manchester United’s win against Everton on Saturday lunchtime.
The Portugal international - who joined the Red Devils from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window - continued to show he is a quality player by scoring a double and assisting Edison Cavani in United’s 3-1 win against the Toffees.
The victory at Goodison Park eases the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who said the football authorities set them up to fail.
Fernandes, however, says the three points was the most important thing to take from the match, and they need to improve if they are to climb up the Premier League table.
He also spoke about how vital it was for Cavani to score his first goal as he reckons that will give the Uruguayan confidence.
"The point is winning the game,” he told BBC Sport. “[I set up Edinson Cavani because] for a striker it is important to score for his confidence, he will be important for us and the first goal will give him confidence.
"I don't need to think about a hat-trick, I need to think about the future.
"Every game is important, we are not good in the league so these three points are important. We have a game in hand so we can go closer to the top of the table. We are not the best team now, and we are not the worst team after Istanbul.
"We will get better if we do the right things."
While speaking to BT Sport, Fernandes said: "It was a great end to the game. We knew what we had to do [today] and we did it well.
"We did some mistakes in the second half, maybe we were a bit more confident and wanted to go forward and we didn't keep the ball too much. After the first goal we had a great reaction and we did what we had to do.
"We know our quality. We worked hard for the game. It was difficult to recover after the [Istanbul Basaksehir] game. This was the moment to do something in this game and we did it."
On being awarded the second goal: "I don't care if Marcus [Rashford] touched it a little bit it can be his goal, it is no problem for me - most important for me as a number 10 is serving my team mates.
"I think we know inside the dressing room what we need to do. Everyone needs to be a leader."
Fernandes has now scored 18 goals in all competitions for Manchester United. Solid player.
