Bruno Fernandes explains why Manchester United defeated Arsenal in the Premier League

Manchester United defeated Arsenal in the Premier League at Old Trafford in what was an inspiring and collective win for the club.

The win made it four in four for Manchester United, with Bruno Fernandes having a great performance and getting an assist for Marcus Rashford’s first goal.

Fernandes believes that the Red Devils are picking up a winning habit.

“It has to become a habit,” Fernandes told MUTV.

“We know that, playing for this club, [winning] has to be a habit. We have to do that.

“We know that sometimes we get a result, sometimes we don’t, but the fight and the spirit and the togetherness has to always be there to get three points.”

When questioned on the team's performance, Fernandes was full of praise for the defensive performance.

“I thought everyone was compact,” he said. “The togetherness was there, the fighting spirit and everything and that’s why we get the three points and that’s why we have a performance like that.

“Sometimes you have to be deep, you have to defend, you have to defend your own box because the other team has quality and can cause you problems.

“If you do like we did today, you don’t concede many and you score more than them.

“We know we can be a threat on the counter-attack and we can also play a little bit more and we have to play a little bit more, we know that.”

Fernandes has formed a great partnership with Christian Eriksen in recent weeks, and against Arsenal this combination was on top.

Eriksen gained his first Manchester United assist on Sunday with a square ball for Rashford’s second goal.

However, it was Fernandes who played the ball for Eriksen to run through.

“It was really nice but I was saying to Christian to score that goal so he can give me another assist!” Fernandes joked.

“Obviously it was well played by Christian. It’s not easy for a player in front of goal to pass the ball so well played by Christian, very good.”

Manchester United are set to take on Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday, with Erik ten Hag likely to make many changes to his XI.
