Bruno Fernandes admits Manchester United must do better in some basic aspects of their performance following the dramatic win at Brighton.

United rode their luck to seal their first win of the Premier League season courtesy of Fernandes’ penalty which was awarded after the final whistle blew at the AmEx.

Brighton were the better side for long periods but the Seagulls struck the woodwork five times and wasted a couple of other good chances.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows United were let off the hook but Fernandes had little sympathy for Brighton. He is, however, concerned over United’s current form.

He told BT Sport: “Brighton did very well. Everyone can say they deserved more, but the point is to score more goals, not hit the crossbar or post. ”

“We were not as aggressive as I wanted, we gave away two goals and can do so much better.

“The penalty I can do much better, the second goal we need to do much better also, we do some mistakes.

“We were not as aggressive as we want, we need to recover more balls, we need to press better, we need to lose less balls.”
