Manchester United playmaker and Portugal international Bruno Fernandes believes the recent fall of Liverpool is temporary.
Liverpool suffered a shocking 1-0 loss at Burnley’s home game in the Premier League’s 19th game-week on Thursday.
The Reds have now failed to earn a win in any of their last five league matches as they allowed Manchester United, Manchester City, and Leicester to overtake them in the standings.
They have also drawn against West Brom and Newcastle respectively, and also suffered a 1-0 defeat against Southampton prior to the North-West derby against Manchester United, which ended a goaless draw.
Despite their poor run of form, Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes believes Liverpool have the quality to bounce back.
“I think teams have moments. I don’t think Liverpool are playing poorly. I think they don’t win and this is the point,” Fernandes told Manchester United’s official website.
“When teams don’t win, everyone talks about that. When players don’t score, everyone talks about that.
“I feel that on me because I know the standard is high because I arrived and I scored a lot of goals and make a lot of assists, and everyone is wanting goals and assists from me.
“It is the same – everyone expects goals from Salah, from Firmino and from Mane. They are not scoring in the last games and it starts feeling like ‘oh, they are not playing well’.
“They create, they play, but the other teams are playing better and, as I said before, they have more qualities to play. Every team goes there to play maybe without the pressure of the fans.
“Teams play a little bit more comfortably and, as I say, I think it is a moment. We don’t have to look at that moment because big teams and big players can show in every moment,” he added.
