Erik ten Hag says its a pleasure to work with Bruno Fernandes

Aside from his goalscoring contribution, our no.8 was ever creative, unlocking the high line deployed by the visitors on several occasions, finding the likes of Marcus Rashford and Christian Eriksen in space in behind the Villa backline.

United had to stay strong in the defensive aspect of the game, though, as our lead remained at just a one-goal margin, and those intangible, mental traits displayed by Bruno were among the qualities highlighted by manager Erik ten Hag after the game.

When quizzed by reporters in his post-match press conference about Bruno’s resilience, the boss said: “He [Bruno] is so tough. A couple of weeks ago, there was questioning about his captaincy, it’s crazy, because he is such a big leader by example.

“He gives so much energy to the team, besides his smartness, his determination, his passion and his resilience. So, yeah, I think this team are so happy.

“We need such players if you want to win games and if you want to win trophies.”
