Bruno Fernandes has 'single-handedly' turned Man Utd's fortunes around as Solskjaer goes for title, claims Redknapp

BRUNO FERNANDES has single-handedly turned Manchester United into title contenders according to Jamie Redknapp.

The attacker's form since arriving a year ago has transformed the Red Devils' fortunes.

Fernandes helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side move three points clear at the top of the Premier League after their win at Burnley.

It sets up a huge clash at champions Liverpool on Sunday against a team they finished 22 points behind last season.

Pundit Redknapp told Sky Sports: "I think since he’s come to the club he’s single-handedly changed the mentality of it. The goals he’s scored, the assists he’s made. 

"I’ve seen an attitude shift in the players because I think he demands such high standards.

"I think when he plays well, when he scores United play well. It’s as simple as that. He’s changed players around him.

"Before he came you feared for Ole. I mean you feared for him earlier on in the season when he lost 1-0 at Arsenal. I did the game and I thought he’s running out of time here but he’s turned it around. 

"He’s had some bad results in the cup but their league form has been tremendous. So you have to credit him for that, but one man has changed that.

"When you talk about the 22 points, that’s been Bruno Fernandes."


Fernandes has helped United earn 66 points since his arrival last January and their results are the best of any team in the league since his introduction at Old Trafford.

Across 26 games in all competitions this season, Fernandes has 15 goals and nine assists.

He has helped fire United to the top of the table for the first time since the final day of the 2012-13 season under Sir Alex Ferguson as they prepare for a huge trip to Anfield on Sunday.
