Fernandes saves the day as Man Utd escape Sheffield United scare

Manchester United had a tense 4-2 victory against Sheffield United, with Bruno Fernandes playing hero with two goals to ease the pressure on manager Erik ten Hag.

Sheffield United took the lead twice, with Jayden Bogle scoring first, but Harry Maguire’s equalizer before halftime kept United in the game. Ben Brereton Diaz then put Sheffield ahead again after the break.

However, Fernandes rescued United with a penalty and a stunning long-range goal in the second half. Rasmus Hojlund sealed the win with a late goal.

The victory was a relief for Ten Hag, who faces criticism amid a challenging season for United. They aim to salvage their campaign by winning the FA Cup and securing a Europa League spot.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, are facing relegation, sitting 10 points adrift from safety with only four games left.

Despite the win, Ten Hag’s position remains uncertain, with reports of scrutiny on his training methods and relationships with players. United’s technical director, Jason Wilcox, is reportedly conducting an audit.

The match showcased United’s defensive vulnerabilities, with the team conceding their most goals in a single season since 1977-78. However, Fernandes’ brilliance ensured they secured a much-needed victory.
