Man United had a serious issue towards the end of last season when it looked like certain players were out on their feet after an intense schedule, but it appears that Bruno Fernandes is just too important to this team.
He’s transformed United since his arrival and he’s usually the best player on the pitch when he does play, but there has to be a fear that his body will break down eventually.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken the chance to rest a lot of players against Everton tonight in the Carabao Cup, but clearly Fernandes is just too important to leave out:
Plenty of changes for tonight’s line-up:

There are some intriguing changes here with the likes of Tuanzebe, van de Beek and Cavani getting a chance from the start, while Everton have gone with a strong team so it should be a great game.
Playing Fernandes is the main topic of conversation with the United fans tonight because most of them are delighted to see him play, but they are also concerned about a lack of rest for their star man:
I’ve got a bad feeling about this, Bruno Fernandes I thought deserves rest. Ancelotti talked about how they couldn’t take their eyes off him so I’d be expecting Doucoure to be glued on him. I smell ruthless aggression, let’s all just hope he gets through it tbh.

Feel like Fernandes needs a rest but excited nevertheless.

Tonight was a chance to rest Fernandes, I’d have also given Maguire a rest too.
Hope this doesn’t backfire further down the line. However, we should win with that line up #EVEMUN

The dilemma between giving Fernandes a rest and losing if we don’t play him???
