Gary Neville ranks the most important players at Man United, leaves out Bruno Fernandes

Gary Neville has left out Bruno Fernandes as he's ranked the most important players at Manchester United.

Man United secured their first piece of silverware since 2017 when they beat Newcastle United 2-0 to win the Carabao Cup last weekend.

Goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford secured Erik ten Hag's first trophy for the club since his appointment last summer.

And the goalscorers at Wembley Stadium have been praised by Gary Neville, who has ranked Casemiro as Man United's most important player ahead of Rashford.

He put David De Gea and Raphael Varane equal third, stating that the experienced Frenchman is the most important centre-back at the club.

"In order, I would go Casemiro, I would go Rashford, I’d go de Gea and Varane equal third at this moment in time," he said on Sky Sports.

"I can’t believe I’m even saying - forget Casemiro because he wasn’t even here last year - that Varane, Rashford, de Gea have elevated themselves into a position whereby you feel they are in great form.

"We saw last night, de Gea had to make the saves, Rashford has to come on, Casemiro has to come on.

"Varane didn’t come on but I do feel like he is the most important centre-back right now, particularly in big matches and that’s why he gets rested."

The exclusion of Fernandes, who has starred this season, angered Man United fans online.

A second tweeted: "Bruno is top lol."

A third added: "Stop disrespecting Bruno."

Fernandes has scored seven goals in all competitions this term and has donned the captain's armband on several occasions with Harry Maguire out of favour.
