Bruno Fernandes ManUnited

Manchester United creativity problems solved?

Bruno Fernandes' debut for Manchester United offered us a glimpse of what he can bring to the club.

The Portugal midfielder made more passes and shots than anyone on the pitch in the draw with Wolves at Old Trafford.

All five of United's shots in the first half came from outside the 18-yard box.

Fernandes can probably help with that. Shooting from distance is something he is really good at.

"In the first half nobody was moving in front of him, everybody wanted the ball to feet and nobody was getting in-behind, we just played outside their box," said Solskjaer. "His creativity is one of his strengths. He can see passes and play passes. But we need to get movement around him."

The midfielder has created more chances from short passes than any other player in the Portuguese league in each of the past two seasons.

"He was great," said Daniel James of his new team-mate. "With the balls he played in behind and, for me, if we can get that bond, especially playing it in behind, I think that will be great."

Fernandes could be the man to improve United's build-up play.
