‘No goal, no assists in the last five games against big teams’ – Paul Scholes slams Bruno Fernandes

Following Manchester United’s goalless draw against Arsenal on Saturday, Manchester United legend Paul Scholes insists Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes needs to do more in big games.

Scholes told Premier League studio: “Bruno Fernandes has been disappointing in every single one of them. He’s had great numbers, great assists, great goals. In the last five games against big teams, he’s had no goals, no assists.

“It’s really worrying and that’s why United are where they’re at. They’re in a good position tonight but it’s not a position where you think ‘this team will go on to win the league’.

“They’ve come to Arsenal, who aren’t a great team, and they haven’t won the big game. There is no desperation to win it either. I don’t see them throwing bodies forward.

“Arsenal weren’t a threat going forward, no Saka, no Aubameyang. United don’t do enough to win these big games, they don’t throw enough bodies forward and they don’t have a desperation to win them and to go on to win the league.”
