Bruno Fernandes agrees with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Man Utd beat Villa

Manchester United ace Bruno Fernandes agreed with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assessment of Friday night’s win over Aston Villa.

The Red Devils went ahead through an Anthony Martial header before Bertrand Mendy put Villa back on level terms just before the hour mark.

Just three minutes later, however, United were back ahead as Fernandes slotted home a penalty after Paul Pogba was felled by Douglas Luiz.

The win put United level on points with Liverpool, who are currently top of the Premier League table.

But Fernandes and Solskjaer both found the same fault with United’s performance, with each explaining that the team should have finished the game off earlier.

Solskjaer claimed afterwards that United had more than enough chances to put the game to bed before they did, but insisted he was happy with the result.

"I agree with that because against Leicester we conceded a goal at the end.

“The only mistake we made today was we had more chances to score again and maybe we have to close the game more quickly.

“We don't score the third one and they press us until the end."

Fernandes agreed with Solskjaer, and insisted that while he was happy with the win, the performance showed there was more to come from the Red Devils.

He said: "We knew they [Aston Villa] play really well.

“They have qualities and are doing well in the league.

“We did well and created more chances than before but scored less goals.

“The most important thing is three points though."
