Bruno Fernandes has scored 11 times and made seven assists in the Premier League this season to help Manchester United launch a title challenge, but the player put up an unimpressive performance in his side’s 0-2 loss to Manchester City in the English League Cup.
With Bruno unable to influence the game, none of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could step up, leading Gary Neville to point out his former club’s over reliance on the player.
I don’t think anybody could think one person would have the impact on this Manchester United team [he has],” Neville told Sky Sports.
We all thought we’d need four or five players yet, with him in the team, they feel unbeatable. Without him they’re nowhere near as good.AdvertisementAdvertisement
The one problem Ole has is he can’t rotate him. In any game that matters he has to play.
Manchester United will host Watford in the FA Cup third round at Old Trafford on Saturday and will seek to increase their chances of winning the FA Cup after their Champions League and League Cup elimination.
