Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has explained why he was happy when he entered the dressing room following the disappointing draw with Leicester City.
Fans generally accepted the result but were frustrated nonetheless simply because they felt their side were the better team and should’ve won based on their performance.
United created enough chances to win the match but it was a combination of wasteful finishing and a leaky defence that saw them pick up just a point.
Bruno played his part in the 2-2 draw, grabbing a goal and an assist to continue his ridiculous vein of form.
The Red Devils are still in a good position in the league as they’re five points behind league leaders and fierce rivals Liverpool but they have a game in hand to potentially cut the gap to two points.
Bruno Fernandes: “I was really happy when I got in the dressing room and I saw everyone disappointed and saying the things we had to do better. You are creating a winning mentality and we are not happy with this point." #mulive [mutv]

Bruno’s performances have seen Manchester United put their poor early season form behind them and suddenly be talked about as title challengers.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to be drawn into such talk but admitted the goal of the club is always to win trophies.
If United are to challenge for the title then they will need Bruno to remain fit and firing as he is easily their most talismanic player.
