Sky Sports pundit Phil Thompson believes if Chelsea want to win the game against Manchester United tonight, they must stop Bruno Fernandes. Manchester United face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tonight in a clash that will prove vital in the race for a top-four finish.
Thompson was impressed by the performance of United’s new signing on debut against Wolves before the winter break and believes he has the quality to cause Chelsea problems.
It will be intriguing to see how Bruno Fernandes settles in,” Thompson told Sporting Life.
“He looks promising. You do not want to let him get on the ball from a Chelsea perspective.
“For him to be so young and be the go-to man for United says a lot, when you have four or five shots on target, it says something about you.”
The former Liverpool defender backed Chelsea to get the better of their top-four rivals but admitted Frank Lampard will have to be wary of United’s ability on the counter.
