Bruno Fernandes has called out for his Manchester United team-mates to be leaders following their victory against Everton.

The midfielder scored a brace at Goodison Park and set up Edinson Cavani in injury time as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side claimed three vital points in the Premier League.

The Red Devils had endured a tough week in the build-up to the Everton win, suffering defeats to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Portuguese midfielder said: ‘We know inside of the dressing room what we have to do. 

‘Everyone needs to be a leader. Some are leaders with the way they play, some do other things. 

‘But the most important thing is getting the three points it’s for the whole team not just for one player.’

Fernandes has been one of the shining lights under Solskjaer since his £50million move in January from Sporting Lisbon.

His two goals and assist took his United tally to 31 goal involvements in a United shirt, more than any other player at the club since he joined. 

BT Sport pundit Joe Cole said that he believes some of the players in the Manchester United squad can be ‘poisonous’ due to the cutthroat environment at Old Trafford.

He said: ‘He was searching for the right words. What I think he was trying to allude to was that people inside the dressing room when things go wrong can get a bit poisonous and they bring people down. 

‘In all the teams we have played for I think there are those sorts of players. I think with this Man United team in particular they lack leaders within the group and from the outside the way it looks like when they play they turn up when they want. 

‘He wants none of that nonsense and everyone to go in the right direction because he does do it, he produces.’
