Bruno Fernandes piles pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Man Utd criticism

Bruno Fernandes has piled the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after admitting Manchester United have to improve – and fast.

United have been left licking their wounds following back-to-back defeats against Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir that have left Solskjaer feeling the heat again.

The spectre of Mauricio Pochettino is looming large over Solskjaer as he battles to keep his job as United boss.

United insist Solskjaer will not be sacked, but the Norwegian knows the pressure is building following his side's worst start to a domestic season since 1972.

United are languishing in 15th place in the table heading into Saturday's crunch showdown with Everton.

Solskjaer can ill-afford another damaging defeat and Fernandes admits United's league position is nowhere near good enough for the club.

The Portugal international insists the time has come for United's flops to stop talking and start winning games – because actions speak louder than words.

He said: "In the league we are not in a good position – we all know that.

"We need to do much better, and we need to do something more than say 'do something in the next game', because it will be a difficult game for us. Our focus now needs to be already there."

United's season sank to a new low in Turkey on Wednesday night when Solskjaer's men crashed to a shock 2-1 defeat to the Champions League minnows Basaksehir.

Fernandes, 26, admits United got what they deserved and he added: "This game was important for us – winning the game to be comfortable in the group.

"Everything went wrong, we did everything wrong. The intensity was not good from the beginning of the game and we can do much better, everyone feels that.

“We know we can't concede goals like that, but now it's time to look at what we did wrong, to make it better in the next game."
