Man Utd star reaches fantastic Premier League milestone, but he will be frustrated

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has become the first player to create 100 chances in the Premier League this season.

The Portugal international has been a key performer for the Red Devils in the number 10 role.

The 29-year-old had a slow first half to the season, but his form has picked up over the past few weeks.

Fernandes has registered 15 goals and 11 assists in 45 appearances. Out of those, 10 goals and seven assists have come in the top flight.

TNT Sports have now revealed that the Portuguese has created 100 chances in the league this term.

United need to capitalise on Fernandes’ creativity

Fernandes can be a frustrating figure with his tendency to lose possession, but he makes up for it with his goal contributions.

The former Sporting CP star likes to take risks with his distribution in the final third. Against Burnley yesterday, he created nine chances.

Four were big scoring opportunities, but Alejandro Garnacho and Antony failed to capitalise. Rasmus Hojlund was barely in the game.

Fernandes, who is currently valued at £60 million by Transfermarkt, will be frustrated with the inability of his teammates to find the back of the net.

United have lacked a cutting edge in attack and must freshen things up his summer with another quality striker.

They may also need to invest in another winger who can make regular goal contributions. Athletic Bilbao’s Nico Williams would be an ideal signing.
