Bruno Fernandes’ impact on Man Utd has been stated and overstated and yet it cannot be captured just right.
The Portuguese midfielder has had several chances to his name to shine and nearly on all those occasions he has made an excellent impact with his new side.
On Saturday, he singlehandedly led the Red Devils to an emphatic 3-1 win over Everton, playing a role in all three goals- scoring two and assisting Edison Cavani for the third.
That performance did a lot to raise the club’s morale following a series of poor games. One can even go as far as to say that Fernandes singlehandedly secured Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s job for the time being.
In fact, the full picture of his impact at Old Trafford can be best ascertained when one sees how other sides have fared in comparison following his arrival in the winter.
In that regard, only Man City and Liverpool have won more Premier League games since the midfielder joined United. The raw numbers are certainly quite something as the Red Devils’ 12 wins are not too shy of City’s 13 and Liverpool’s 14 respectively.
Fernandes is clearly a game-winner and his reaction following the few losses he has been parry to at United also speak volumes. Attitude is everything and the 27-year-old has a hunger for wins.
It will be interesting to see how many more he is able to garner this campaign after their bumpy and frankly appalling start to life.
