“We have to focus on the Premier League too, not only on the other competitions,” Fernandinho said. “If we don’t carry on we can be dropped out the top four, so we need to qualify for the Champions League next season. We will focus on the cups and the Champions League too, but we are professionals. We need to show our character until the end of the season and finish the league in the best possible way.”
Of course, a red card to Oleksandr Zinchenko proved to be the turning point of the game. But Fernandinho believes it is tied up to City not being clinical in the final third.
“During the last four seasons, we have been playing this way. In the last two seasons, we were incredible, we won the Premier League twice, we got 198 points over two seasons, we didn’t change that much,” he added. “We keep going the same way, creating chances but if you don’t score goals, you can’t win the games.
“We need to find the solutions, starting tomorrow in training and continuing on the next game against West Ham at home. We have to revert the situation and keep winning.”
