Erik Ten Hag Finally Names His Best Man United Player In 2-0 Everton Win

Erik ten Hag was so impressed with Bruno Fernandes’ display against Everton that he named him his Man of the Match.

“I think he [Bruno] was brilliant and he has played brilliant in a deeper role and even last week against Newcastle he played very well and today – brilliant. He was definitely the best player on the pitch.

“We have to be more clinical and more ruthless and this game has to be finished by half time and we didn’t. But it is still a very good performance and it is still a big compliment to the team.”

Fernandes was indeed on another level. The Portuguese had the most touches (118), most passes completed (88), most passes in the final third (43) and the most chances created (six). He also had four shots and won one duel.

United temporarily moved to third with 56 points. They host Sevilla in the Europa League on Thursday before a Premier League trip to Nottingham Forest.
