United lead the pack right now but Fernandes hasn't been at his sparkling best so far in 2021.
The Red Devils face Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday evening and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told to rest the 26-year-old.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson explained in his Daily Star column: "United should rest Bruno Fernandes against Liverpool this weekend. He looks tired to me.
"He's played every single game in the league and all those minutes start to add up after a while.
"For me, he doesn't play in this game. United haven't had a chance to win the league like this for a few years.
"They have to take this chance and prioritise the title race. The FA Cup just isn't as important.
"It's more important to keep him as fresh as possible for the league. He lifts them. They look to him to make things happen."
