Player to watch – Bruno Fernandes

Man Utd's form might not be at its best right now but their Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been at the top of his game in recently.

The 29-year-old has scored nine goals in his last ten appearances for club and country and Erik ten Hag will be desperate for the former Sporting man to be fit and available to face Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Easily Manchester United's top-performing player right now

If he does play we're backing Fernandes to be in top form once again which will likely see him add to either his assists or goals tally for the season, possibly both.
