Bruno Fernandes is clearly the best United player right now with the right set of mentality. Since joining Manchester United back in January, he has completely transformed the midfield.
He has been so good for United that they went unbeaten last season after the league resumed after the Coronavirus break. They finished 3rd last season.
This season’s home results have been awful for United, but when playing away from home, they are a completely different side. Bruno now has a hand in 15 Premier League goals in his first 10 away matches, which is the most in Premier League history.
On Saturday against Everton, he headed the ball home before curling the ball into the net for his second goal. In the dying minutes of the game, United got a counter-attack.
Many thought that Fernandes would go for his hattrick and there was a good chance of him getting it, but he opted to pass the ball instead to Cavani, who scored his first Manchester United goal.
Fernandes told BBC Sport: “The point is winning the game. [I set up Edinson Cavani because] for a striker it is important to score for his confidence, he will be important for us and the first goal will give him confidence.”
“I don’t need to think about a hat-trick, I need to think about the future.”
“Every game is important, we are not good in the league so these three points are important. We have a game in hand so we can go closer to the top of the table. We are not the best team now, and we are not the worst team after Istanbul.”
“We will get better if we do the right things.”
Fernandes’ mentality is truly magnificent and keeping the team first in these type of conditions clearly shows how he has become the leader of the team.
