Fernandes hails 'high standard' Manchester United after 1-0 victory

Manchester United kept their winning run after a 1-0 away victory at Southampton, building on the 2-1 victory they achieved last week over their arch-rivals, Liverpool.

After back-to-back defeats in their two opening Premier League games against Brighton and Brentford, the Red Devils now bagged 6 points from their last two matches as

Bruno Fernandes’

55th-minute goal sealed the Red Devils a 1-0 victory over


on Saturday.

Fernandes hailed United's attitude, he told his post-match interview with

BT Sport

: "We knew that playing against Southampton away is not easy. We have experienced that already in the last three years.

"We did a great game, sometimes you have to suffer. This is the Premier League, every game is tough. Well done to us. Massive three points for us. Now we have to carry on.”




urged his side to build on the victories and improve further.

"Obviously I think we did two or three seasons ago not losing from home," 

he added.

 "But we want to win every game. That's what it's about to play for Manchester United."

"It's important because one win doesn't make the league, two wins don't make the league. We have to carry on this sacrifice in the last two games for the rest of the season. This is what this club demands.

"After Liverpool everyone could feel it, we set the standard so we have to carry on now and if we can, improve it."


Fernandes gave credit for his goal against the Saints to

Marcus Rashford


Jadon Sancho

as the Portuguese had an easy finish from a bouncing ball just inside the penalty area.

"It was a great ball, even great play from behind. Everything was perfect," he said with a smile.

"I think it was Marcus or Jadon who made the run on the goal and created the space to make it. We did it well, so well done to everyone not just me."

Manchester United will travel to

Leicester City

on Thursday for their next Premier League match.
