Bruno Fernandes defended Marcus Rashford’s performance after Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat by Liverpool on Tuesday night.

United produced one of their worst performances of the season at Anfield as a Mohamed Salah double combined with goals from Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane sealed a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Rashford, on the other hand, cut an isolated figure in United’s attack and didn’t register a shot on goal during the game.

The 24-year-old has not scored in his last 13 games for United but Fernandes insists it has been difficult for him to make an impact during the team’s poor form.

Asked about Rashford’s muted performance against Liverpool, Fernandes told Stadium Astro: “I have nothing to say about that.

“Marcus has been professional, he trains, he trains well, he does what he has to do.

“Of course, if the team isn’t performing, it’s difficult for the individual to come out.

“We don’t have to blame any player or anyone because the blame has to be on all of us.”

Fernandes also conceded that United are nowhere near the level of Manchester City and Liverpool.

“Liverpool were just better than us, they did everything they could to win the game and they deserved it,” said Fernandes.

“Obviously this season hasn’t been the best for us, we’re waiting for another season, we thought it might be another one, but obviously we’re not at the same level as Manchester City and Liverpool, they’re better than us at this moment and we have to accept that.’
