But it shows just how well Fernandes has been performing for United. Technically, without his contributions, the team would be in 15th place in the Premier League.

Bruno Fernandes Becomes First Manchester United Player To Speak Out Against European Super League

published at4 days ago

The former Sampdoria and Udinese man is central to everything United do and Jason Cundy, former Chelsea and Spurs player, reckons the team are too reliant on him.

"If Bruno doesn't turn up, United don't turn up... he's such a good player and he drives them forward," he said on talkSPORT.talkSPORT.

"You worry for United. If there was to be five/six games where maybe picks up an injury, a suspension or even a lack of form... over the last 12 months he's been astonishing, probably the most consistent player in the Premier League. United aren't that great without him."

"Kevin De Bruyne has just come out of Manchester City, you wouldn't know it. If Bruno is out of the United side for the same length of time, United feel it. That's the point I'm making, They're so reliant."
