Fernandes wary of Liverpool Cup backlash | Ralph-Lauren

Must Read


Manchester United’s key man Bruno Fernandes is disregarding Liverpool’s poor run as he prepares to knock their biggest rivals out of the FA Cup.

A week on from the sides’ tense 0-0 Premier League draw at an empty Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s men head to Old Trafford for Sunday’s eagerly-anticipated fourth-round encounter.

Liverpool make the trip along the M62 enduring a rare shaky moment, with Thursday’s shock 1-0 loss to Burnley their first home league defeat since April 2017.

The third-round triumph against the youngsters of coronavirus-hit Aston Villa is the only win they have managed in their last six matches in all competitions but Fernandes knows they can bounce back at any point.

“I think teams have moments,” the Portugal international said. “I don’t think Liverpool are playing poorly. I think they don’t win and this is the point.

“We don’t have to look at that moment because big teams and big players can show in every moment.

“When teams don’t win, everyone talks about that. When players don’t score, everyone talks about that.

“I feel that on me because I know the standard is high, because I arrived and I scored a lot of goals and make a lot of assists, and everyone is wanting goals and assists from me.”

Fernandes, United’s outstanding figure in their push back to the top of English football, is hoping to taste victory against Liverpool for the first time since arriving at Old Trafford.

And he will be desperate to make amends for missing a fine chance to win last weekend’s game at Anfield.

United head into Sunday’s match buoyed by their place atop of the Premier League pile, having won a tough clash at Fulham on Wednesday evening.

Paul Pogba’s stunning goal sealed a 2-1 win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men at Craven Cottage, providing a welcome shot in the arm ahead of the cup clash.

“Well, you always recover well when you win so I am ready for the next one,” Fernandes told club media, having made his 50th appearance for United.
