My first idea for this spot was Casemiro but, he is currently serving up a suspension. Then, I was going to put Christian Eriksen because of his high assists totals. However, he is currently out with an injury. Most teams would be out of midfield options at this rate. Not Manchester United though. They have this brilliant Portuguese attacking midfielder who goes by the name of Bruno Fernandes.
The 28-year-old is having another fantastic season in the Premier League. He is currently third in the league in through balls, eighth in tackles, and 15th in assists. He is been brilliant this season with the ball. He knows how to get the balls to his star players. And unlike previous seasons, Fernandes can make a crucial tackle. He’s been doing it all this season as an attacking midfielder. Not only does Brendan Rodgers have to find a way to stop his attack, but he also has to find a way to make sure his defensive line doesn’t make a silly mistake in front of him.
Leicester take on United Sunday; Old Trafford will likely be a full stadium, which leads to another challenge for our players. MUFC has been fantastic this season, yet Leicester’s current form will have them ready for this challenge. It will certainly be a fun contest for everyone watching.
