It is the mark of a true talisman that he continues to produce magic for his side even when not playing at his best, and despite the impressive statistics, Fernandes is definitely not firing on all cylinders at the moment.

A gruelling schedule may have taken its toll but the brilliant number ten still produces the goods. He has now 58 goal involvements in 69 games for United – a rate of production that is second to none in the Premier League era.
