Is Bruno Fernandes at the wheel and not Ole?

Bruno Fernandes time in the Premier League has been amazing to watch as he continues to show how invaluable he is to the United team with each game.

Surely, Bruno’s at the wheel and not Ole?

In a somewhat inconsistent Manchester United squad, certain players have stood out this season and Bruno Fernandes seems to be the one whose impact is felt the most in the squad.

With 10 goals this season, it’s evident that he contributes by virtue of goals to the team. However, it’s his creative ability that really makes him stand out from the rest of the squad.

Bruno Fernandes has been sublime this season, scoring 11 goals and assisting 5. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY EUROSPORT.

In the 3-1 comeback win against West Ham, Bruno created eight chances despite playing only one half of the game. In retrospect, that’s more than every other Manchester United player combined, the most a player has created in a Premier League game this season, and the most a United player has created in over ten years.

This goes to show how much of an impact he has had in Ole’s squad. Without him, United have struggled greatly for creativity. Before his introduction, United failed quite miserably to break the West Ham defence, balls were rarely getting to the final third and it seemed like another drab game.

However, upon his introduction, there seemed to be more fluidity within the squad. To emphasize, he created eight chances in 45 minutes, that’s two more than city neighbours Kevin De Bruyne who created 6 chances in 90 minutes and held the record for most chances created in a game.

De Bruyne is the best midfielder in the Premier League but Bruno is giving him a run for his money. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY BITTER AND BLUE.

Since making his debut, the Portugal international has registered 22 goals and 14 assists in the 38 games that he has played for Manchester United across all competition, yet another testament to the value he has added to the team.

While Solksjaer most likely heaved a sigh of relief after the game, critics remain unconvinced about his managerial abilities.

As a whole, the team have been mostly shaky all season long, but a number of consistent individual displays have won them many games.

Ultimately, critics say Ole has to do more to take charge of his team. It does seem now however that the team is in safe hands with Bruno at the wheel!
