Bruno Fernandes has had an impressive start to his life at Manchester United, but not everyone in the Premier League was happy to see him.

Watford’s Craig Cathcart is no different and he revealed how difficult it was to keep up with Fernandes when the two sides met in February.

“What impressed me most was that he always looks ahead.
“He always gets the ball and his first thought is to move forward and create opportunities, and maybe even [United] were previously missing.
“He’s taken that bit of quality and cutting edge to the last third, and since he came in, their performance has been much better, from what I’ve seen.”
