The Red Devils slipped to a second straight league defeat at Old Trafford after going down 2-0 to the defending Premier League champions.

David de Gea was a big reason why the scoreline was just kept at 2-0, Fernandes says he and his teammates need to better to protect the Spanish goalkeeper.

“It’s always a bad time to concede a goal but the problem is the way we concede goals. It’s too easy.

“As I said, many, many times, if not for David, the result could be much higher and worse for us.

“We have to protect David better. Because he is protecting us a lot and we have to help him.

"He cannot make, every game, eight [or] nine saves and still concede goals.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's charges resume league action after the break away to Watford before they travel to Villarreal for a UEFA Champions League encounter three days later.
