Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes says the side must ‘improve’ after they dropped further ground in the title race with a 3-3 draw against Everton.

The Red Devils failed to put pressure on leaders Manchester City before their trip to Everton as they conceded a last minute equaliser to the Toffees, who came back from 2-0 down in the first half.

Fernandes scored a sublime goal to put United two up at half-time and Scott McTominay looked to have given the home side all three points when he headed in ten minutes from time.

But United couldn’t keep out a Dominic Calvert-Lewin goal in the 95th minute, which leaves the club’s title hopes in tatters.

Fernandes has been critical of his team-mates in recent weeks after dropped points against Sheffield United and Arsenal.

And the Portuguese midfielder has continued his plea for his team-mates to raise their level, by stressing they must ‘work harder and improve’.

‘Gutted with the result….we’re very disappointed but we’ll never surrender!’ said Fernandes.

‘Learn, work harder and improve!’

United have the chance to put the dissapointment behind them when they face West Ham at Old Trafford in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to make a number of changes, with Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek and Alex Telles likely to come into the side.

United last won the competition under Louis van Gaal in 2016.
