Gary Neville has disagreed with fears that Bruno Fernandes is too easily wound up at Manchester United. Fernandes was involved in an encounter with Arsenal defender Cedric Soares during the goalless draw with the Gunners.

After being caught by Cedric’s trailing arm, Fernandes hit the ground and then got into the face of the German when he returned to his feet. Fernandes avoided a booking for the tackle.

“You can [wind him up]. But that’s what makes him what he is, he’s the energy in the team,” said Neville on Sky Sports. “He’s United’s best player with the ball and without the ball because the press starts from him as well. He’s got them going, in and out of possession, and he’s got that fire in him as well.”
