While the likes of Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford will no doubt take the limelight after scoring and looking lively in attack in this game, many fans are also noticing the huge improvement made by Fred in the middle of the park.

Performances like today, however, show something much more promising, so it’s little wonder this lot are thrilled with the 26-year-old’s improvement…
