Bruno Fernandes was not happy with his team at all following their 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
The Portuguese midfielder had given his side a two-goal lead but they squandered it with Villa netting twice in the closing stages.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, the 27-year-old said: ‘I’m not happy at all, obviously everyone is happy to score goals and I’m one of them too, but I prefer to win the game.
Bruno Fernandes was far from happy following his side’s draw with Aston Villa on Saturday
‘I prefer to take away my two goals and have someone else score and win the game than to score myself.
‘Anyway, of course I’m really happy to score, I want to score goals, I want to try to help the team, and I think if I score I can help the team.
‘But today makes no sense because we just get one point and we want to get the three.’
He added: ‘At the end, we don’t get our chances in the counters.
‘We don’t do the last pass or the last run, it was not perfect and at the end we gave chances to them.
Fernandes scored both goals to put his side 2-0 up but it ultimately wasn’t enough
‘They have a good team, they have quality up front, they have players who can score and at the end, they scored and drew the game.
‘It’s a tough one to take because I think the game was under control. I don’t feel [the game switched] it at all.
‘After the first goal, they started to press us a little bit more, but even then, we get our chances, we could still score again.
‘You start losing balls, losing confidence, the game starts to get better for them and they start to get more space in between the lines, more space wider. I think the performance was better than the result.
‘Overall, we deserved more, but the game is not about deserving, it’s about getting the three points.’
