Bruno Fernandes insists Manchester United can be competitive in the Champions League after qualification was sealed with Thursday’s 4-1 defeat of Chelsea.

United were knocked out by Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the Europa League this season but the midfielder has no concerns regarding their prospects. “Every team that competes in the Premier League can compete in the Champions League if you do the right things,” he said. “Obviously Champions League is always a different scenario because you play against the Spanish team that plays really well on the ball, you play against the Italian teams that are really strong, you play against the German teams that we all know are clinical.

We want to be there, we have to enjoy it and do the best we can because I think we have the qualities to play and to get a good position.” United’s campaign began with the loss of the opening two games, at home to Brighton and at Brentford.
