Manchester United were seemingly having a hard time being consistent, stumbling a lot more often than none throughout this season.
Breaking the headlines however, Bruno Fernandes arrived at Old Trafford during the final stages of the winter window this year, and has made quite a start in the Premier League.
All analytical eyes were on the Portuguese ever since his debut for the Red Devils, and the creative midfielder has showcased his class, adapting to the new surroundings and teammates in a very short duration.
In just six appearances he has made for the club, the talented playmaker has already registered three goals and two assists to his name. Plus it’s not just about the stats, it’s the whole impact the asset has produced in the field, primarily in the offense line.
Subsequently, with the Portugal international anchoring the United midfield, the team have started showing signs of the renaissance Solskjaer promised when he assumed the mantle last summer.
The midfielder has been involved in more goals and has registered more shots in the Premier League than any other player, including forwards, since his debut for United a month back.
Bruno Fernandes has been directly involved in more shots (24) in the Premier League than any other player since his Man Utd debut:

Filling up the holes left behind by the absence of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, the ex-Sporting star is doing considerably well at the Theatre of Dreams with the manager installing complete faith in him.
The Norwegian coach is really contented with the Portuguese’s addition which’s conspicuously owing to the attacking potential his side have been showcasing recently.
Providing solace to the supporters, the attacker’s contract is not expiring until 2025 which could possibly mean that he could mould up a legacy of his own, following the footsteps of his idol Cristiano Ronaldo.
