 Bruno Fernandes has scored seven goals and registered four assists this season, with Solskjaer's side becoming ever more reliant on his stunning output

It was the kind of performance that excited and confused Manchester United supporters to the same extent.

For the opening 45 minutes at the London Stadium, West Ham had their way with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and should have had a bigger lead than the one goal they took into the break.

However, the introduction of Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes changed the game, with United scoring three times in 13 second-half minutes.

And it was Fernandes’ performance that helped inspire the victory – with a performance that hasn’t been matched by a United player in a decade.\

In his 45 minute showing, the Portuguese superstar created eight chances for his teammates. More than any other player has managed in any Premier League game this campaign.

Kevin De Bruyne was the league leader with six against Wolves, but that total was bettered in a stunning second-half display.

In total, no player has created more chances than the 35 he has, in any of Europe’s top-five leagues this season.

In less than 12 months since moving to the Premier League, Fernandes has become the undoubted talisman at Old Trafford, with a stunning knack of being involved in goals.

Gary Neville did take a slightly more pessimistic view of Fernandes’ United form however – suggesting his old side are becoming too reliant on the midfielder.

"What Manchester United have is four or five match-winners, game-changers, that play in moments,” he said on the Gary Neville Podcast. “My concern is for the longer-term because you need performances that knit together that look like an identity is building. I can't quite see what they are yet.

"They can't play without Bruno. I don't know what it is, he's a very good player but you'd think that Van de Beek and Pogba, McTominay in midfield with Greenwood, Cavani and Martial would be able to do so much better than that.

"The minute Bruno comes on - and Marcus Rashford as well who probably had a bigger impact yesterday - but Bruno's impact on the team is huge. You can't compare Bruno to Harry Kane but you know Kane has an influence on his team that's bigger than just his performances, which are excellent.

"Bruno is exactly the same with this Manchester United team and he's only been there a short amount of time. As soon as he came on, they seemed more arrogant, more connected, more cohesive. I don't know what it is when he doesn't play.”
