Manchester United are one step closer to securing Champions League football next season after beating Wolves 2-0 at Old Trafford.
After the game, captain Bruno Fernandes spoke to MUTV about the importance of putting in a professional performance to get the job done.
It was a must-win because we know that we need points to get the position we want to get the top four. We did our job properly and that’s why we got the three points.
They [Wolves] are a really smart team, they defend really well. They are compact, it’s difficult to go through their lines. They have quality on the ball. They have players with pace up front and they are really good technically, so we had to be aware of the counters, we had to be aware when they had the ball, we had to have the right press on them. So, I think we did really well, [it was] a professional performance and that’s why we get the points.
Anthony Martial scored the opening goal after a ball from Antony put it on a plate for the Frenchman, but Fernandes joked he knew that his teammate would score.
I knew he was going to score today because he had his haircut with our barber. Every time he gets his haircut with him, he gets his goal. So, I will call him [the barber] every time now to go the day before the game to cut his hair because we need this Anthony. We need the Anthony that scores goals, that gives us a lot of quality on the ball and creates a lot of space for others. So, I’m really pleased for his goal and also for seeing [Alejandro] Garnacho getting back to the games and getting his goal too.
United now need six points from the remaining three games to ensure that we finish in the top four, something Fernandes is confident about us achieving.
I’m confident also to go away from home because we know how good we are. We have to go to Bournemouth and think that we will go there to win the game because we have quality to do that. The away fans are amazing too. They have been there in every game. They’ve been helping us in every game and we have to get a good result for them because we travel a lot all around England, so we have to we have to give something back to them.
