Manchester United play host to Tottenham on Wednesday evening in a league outing.
Tottenham have lost just one league match this campaign and have the joint-best defence in the division.
They also finished above Manchester United last season, so a tough test is expected for United.
Ahead of the game, Erik ten Hag has been discussing Bruno Fernandes.
The Portuguese remains a regular feature in Man United’s midfield, but his goal contributions have dried up over the last year.
Fernandes has scored just one and assisted two in 13 this season.
Now, Ten Hag has stated that Fernandes can produce more goals and assists:
“Yeah but I think Bruno is playing really good this season, so I can see in that fact, he can produce more goals, assists. But I think he’s often in the line of the goal,” he said.
“He’s playing a massive role in a lot of moments of football for us: in building attacks, creativity, movement, but also in transitions, in both sides, in the defensive transitions he’s magnificent and doing a really good job so I’m really happy with his performances.”
Ten Hag also discussed Fernandes’ displays as United captain: “I think he’s really an example.”
“The way he transfers the way of play from us, how he motivates around him, how he is the example, so the energy he gives to the team, that’s really good and so I’m happy with his performance.
“I know it will come, his goals and assists, and it will be even more.”
