Bruno Fernandes stars for Man Utd in 2-0 win vs Wolves

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes produced a superb performance during the 2-0 Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers this afternoon.

The Portuguese has been a consistent performer for the Red Devils over the course of the campaign and he has made plenty of goal contributions since the World Cup.

The 28-year-old has also excelled with his ability to pick out key passes and create chances. Against Wolves, he looked back at his best with a splendid attacking display.

Over 90 minutes, Fernandes managed 68 touches with a pass accuracy of 83 per cent.

He was heavily involved in the final third with six key passes and two big chances created. Fernandes also won five duels and managed three successful take-ons against the Midlands outfit.

The Portuguese ended the game with an assist for Alejandro Garnacho’s late goal. In our view, he was unlucky and could have had more if his teammates were more clinical up front.

We recently covered a report highlighting how Fernandes has matched Kevin De Bruyne’s statistics this season but has been unfortunate due to the poor finishing from the forwards.

Today’s game once again showed why United must invest on an elite striker. They got away with some average finishing and must find a solution during the summer transfer window.

United’s 2-0 win over Wolves has put them in a stronger position to finish in the top four.

They now require a maximum of six points from their remaining three matches. They should easily achieve it with fixtures against Bournemouth, Chelsea and Fulham to come.
