Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes says that the squad must focus on winning every single game after he bagged a late winner at Fulham.

It was a largely frustrating afternoon for the Red Devils and they looked set to walk away from Craven Cottage with just a point but Fernandes scored in stoppage time to claim the spoils.

After the match, he said: “Everyone knows the situation is not the best, we lost the last two games and the performances weren’t too good.

“Today it was a different game and we had to deliver something different and we got the three points which is the most important thing.

“Today is about the team and what everyone does on the pitch.

“It was a game where everyone sacrificed and everyone ran, worked harder and even the goal you could see the reaction of the players trying to get the ball around the box.

“It was a good performance and maybe we could have created more chances but we did still create a lot.

“We have to understand that we can still do better and can deliver much more.

“I think the team understands now that it is about getting results and winning every time we play.”

Scott McTominay thought he had given the visitors an early lead after eight minutes, but his goal was ruled out by VAR.

But the Scotsman kept pushing on the pitch and helped break down a resilient Fulham defence in the end.

He added: “It shouldn’t just be this game and we can’t get too carried away but there’s times where everyone’s against you and you’ve got to do it your own way and come together.

“It’s a building block and I think we did more than enough to win the game in the end.

“We said to each other that the fans pay good money to come and watch us each week and this sport is relentless and we just want to repay them in every single way that we can.

“Things aren’t going the best at the moment but it’s a building block.

“We trust the coaching staff and the manager as well as the players and I feel like we can go on and do better.”
