It was a victory that gave Manchester United their first home win of the season but another that raised more questions than answers Principle among them: where would Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be without Bruno Fernandes ?

Almost certainly, he wouldn’t have been in the shelter of the house tonight Many still doubt the manager’s credentials, and this grim victory offered little evidence to support Solskjaer’s case

It wasn’t the first screen without charm on Solskjaer’s watch Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho were pilloried for similar performances For all three managers, the common denominator remains for many players on the pitch tonight The difference between Solskajer’s side and those of his predecessors is the presence of Fernandes

The Portuguese playmaker, and possibly Marcus Rashford when not working like he was against the Baggies without a win, remain the only characteristics of this United side

Fernandes isn’t perfect He had the weakest passing accuracy among local players and it was this perceived flaw that would have allowed United to sign him in the first place A number of suitors have reportedly been sidelined from Fernandes due to the regularity with which he gives the ball – United themselves avoided in the summer of 2019 because of this Only when they had little of choice and that Solskjaer had nothing more to lose in January as they enjoyed a clear run against the Portuguese star

Fernandes was guilty of returning the ball tonight Almost a quarter of his passes went astray, but without his willingness to seek the forward pass United would be even harder to watch than they already are He is the only driving force, the only lingering threat to any United opponent

The 26-year-old has played 34 times since joining Sporting Lisbon in late January and his two-time penalty kick was the 32nd goal he played a direct role in At the same time, Rashford are United’s second-largest contributor after being involved in 17 goals This season, United have yet to score a Premier League goal that did not involve either Fernandes or Rashford

Fernandes for scoring 50% (7/14) of his PL goals for #MUFC from the penalty spot: « People criticize this situation by saying: ‘penalties, penalties’
“I’ve seen a lot of teams lose finals – World Cup, Euros, Champions League – on penalties, it’s an important part of the game »

Fernandes stands out in most metrics as he does in the intangibles that go into any performance United’s No18 is perhaps the first player after Sir Alex Ferguson, certainly the unnamed first signing Zlatan, ready to go less attempting to bring teammates back to his level, even if it’s a losing battle So many Solskjaer players will take the first stash available to them when the going gets tough, but Fernandes, time and time again, has been inspired when the flak begins to fly Luckily for those who are currently unable to do so from Stretford End, Fernandes is also up for it when the standards slip, as they often tend to do.

Against West Brom, Fernandes almost reached Paul Pogba’s level in conceded penalties, but was saved by VAR, with David Coote ultimately judging that the United star had just enough contact with the ball by tackling Conor Gallagher It was a clumsy tackle, perhaps as reckless as Pogba’s concessions against Spurs and Arsenal.But unlike Pogba, Fernandes is ready to do the dirty work and as no teammate has made more tackles this season, in the same way as its passage, it happens that the strange one has a result other than that intended

It might not be hard to stand out in the Solskjaer team Too often in recent years, just being seen as shit has been accepted enough as a contribution, especially since many players seem to struggle even with this minimum minimum The dressing room doesn’t seem to lack effort and desire, and Solskjaer can be credited for it, but the quality and character is undeniably lacking. Without Fernandes, it’s unthinkable to imagine how much worse United’s situation could be

Jose was supposed to be done after Man Utd refused to follow his lead, but these malleable Spurs could make him special once again

Tottenham could play Man City straight on the counterattack Or be locked up and make mistakes
