Man Utd: Bruno Fernandes compares himself to Paul Scholes

Bruno Fernandes has been spearheading Manchester United’s charge towards the Premier League title. And the statistics show just how vital the 26-year-old is to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. Signed from Sporting Lisbon in January, the Portugal international has dared the club’s supporters to dream.

United have used stats from data site FBRef.com to shed light on their fine Premier League form.

And Fernandes is clearly their driving force, with the Portugal international topping the charts in four key areas.

Firstly, the obvious. With 11 top flight goals this season, he’s bagged more than any other player.

Marcus Rashford has found the net seven times in comparison with Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial managing nine between them.

Fernandes also tops the assists chart.

He’s managed seven in the Premier League this term, with Rashford mustering five, Martial three and Cavani and Juan Mata clocking up two each.
