MU: Bruno Fernandes and the big game question mark

02 Mar 2022 | 11:41 | Football

Bruno Fernandes, after two years at MU, is still questioned about his ability to explode in big matches with the Big 6 teams.

Statistics do not support Bruno

MU’s 2021-22 season begins with great ambitions, when Cristiano Ronaldo returns with the contract negotiations Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

 Bruno Fernandes has not yet stood out in big matches.

MU’s ambitions were soon questioned as they entered their first big match, against Liverpool at home. That day, Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and 4 other players in the main team of the host received a yellow card.

Paul Pogba, who came on in the second half, was sent off after just 14 minutes.

So far, after 5 matches with Big 6 teams, MU won 7 out of 15 possible points. One of the wins (3-2 against Arsenal) came during the interim Michael Carrick period.

Bruno Fernandes is with Ronaldo leading the team’s scorer list in the top division of English football, with 9 times to hit the opponent’s net.

The former Sporting Lisbon player also has the most assists in the team, with six assists in the Premier League.

 Bruno Fernandes’ attacking and ball organization performance in the Premier League 2021-22.

But Bruno is very modest in encounters with Big 6 opponents: 1 goal and 1 assist after 5 games.

Last season, the Portuguese player scored 3 goals and provided no assists against the Big 6. 2 of the 3 goals he scored were penalty kicks.

Question mark with Bruno Fernandes

Since Ralf Rangnick appeared, no one in the MU component has played more prominently than Bruno Fernandes.

Initially, the 4-2-2-2 style that Rangnick applied made Bruno encounter many difficulties. After that, the German military leader switched to 4-2-3-1 that MU players were more familiar with.

 Bruno was most prominent in Rangnick’s period.

The 4-2-3-1 system, where the ball is still played 4-2-2-2, helps Bruno find more space to show off his skills.

Not Cristiano Ronaldo, but Bruno Fernandes is expected to help MU overcome the stormy period in March.

The match schedule is a big challenge for Rangnick’s teachers and students. In less than 3 weeks to come, the Red Devils meet 3 opponents of the Big 6 group, Man City, Tottenham and Liverpool.

Man City and Liverpool are competing for the Premier League title. Meanwhile, Tottenham is MU’s main rival in the battle for 4th place.

Not to mention, MU also has the second leg of the 1/8 Champions League round with Atletico at Old Trafford.

 Bruno Fernandes is expected to help MU overcome difficulties

There are up to 4 climactic wars encapsulated in 14 days, a density that can exhaust the players.

In the situation on the anvil under the hammer, MU fans expect a lot from Bruno Fernandes’ ability to create mutations.

Bruno just celebrated his two years with MU. During his time at Old Trafford, as well as with the Portuguese team, the 27-year-old player has a major limitation that is mentally unstable under high pressure.

It’s time for Bruno Fernandes to overcome the psychological pressure to shine with the Big 6, starting with this weekend’s Manchester derby – the match he competes against compatriot Bernardo Silva – instead of being associated with the image. Star Small Matches.
