Mohamed Salah fired in a brace on Tuesday night, while Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane also got on the score sheet.
United’s legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson looked heartbroken in the stands as he helplessly watched on.
Gary Neville was left fuming with United when speaking on commentary for Sky Sports, as he blasted the squad as a “waste of space”.
And his ex-team-mate Roy Keane ripped into the club as he declared that the team is devoid of leaders, heart, soul and quality.
Following the match, Fernandes failed to hide his shame as he insisted that United‘s fans deserve better from the players.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Fernandes said: “Obviously it’s a bad result again. There’s not much more that I can say.
“I think apologise to the fans, it will never be enough, but obviously there’s nothing we can do now.
“The fans don’t deserve us to play this way. They deserve more from us.
“The way they support us until the end, the way they stay even after the result to applaud us, they deserve much more from us.
“We have to raise our level higher. It is what it is.”
Asked if the effort of his team-mates was there, he remarked: “I think everyone runs. I think there is effort from everyone. I don’t think someone does not give 100 per cent.
“We have to do it for ourselves, the clubs, the fans and everyone.
“We have to say things but that is kept in the dressing room. Now it is over we have to think of the next game.”
He continued: “Liverpool is fighting for the title. We are not fighting for nothing at the moment. You can see the difference by the points.
“I don’t need to be here saying about the difference of the level.”
Fernandes was then pressed on why United are so far behind Liverpool, despite finishing above them last season.
To which he stated: “We have to look at ourselves, from top to bottom and understand what is going wrong.
“We are competing until the end and we have to compete. If someone doesn’t want to compete they have to stay out.
“Nobody can put their head down and think it is over. All of us have to understand there is something to fight for, at least for the badge.”
Interim gaffer Ralf Rangnick then let rip at his ’embarrassing, humiliating’ squad, who mustered just two shots all game.
