– Bruno Fernandes provided an assist and also scored a goal in Man United’s draw at Leicester City
– Paul Scholes believes the Portuguese midfielder has more flair to United’s attack since his arrival
– The 25-year-old has now scored 14 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils this season
– The Red Devils failed to go behind fiercest rivals Liverpool by just two points following the draw
Paul Scoles has praised the impact of Bruno Fernandes despite Man United conceding twice against Leicester City in their 2-2 draw.
The Portuguese midfielder scored in the 79th minute and provided United’s first goal converted by Marcus Rashford in the first half.
The former Sporting Lisbon star has become one of the most important members of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad and Red Devils legend Scholes has attested to the claims.
Scholes was quoted by Mirror:
“It’s ridiculous really, how well he’s doing,”
“We knew he’d make a big difference to this team when he came in and he’s been sensational.
“As I said before he came, United really struggled to create a chance. They kept possession well but couldn’t create a chance, couldn’t score a goal. He’s totally transformed the team.”
Dropping points at the King Power Stadium meant that United threw away the opportunity to close the gap on League leaders and defending champions Liverpool.
It also meant that the Red Devils’ away winning run comes to an end as they failed to nail an 11th victory on the road which could have equalled a Premier League record..
