Arriving at Manchester United in January, Bruno Fernandes ignited the Premier League. The former Sporting Lisbon midfielder has scored eight goals and provided seven assists in just 14 league games to help United finish third in the table.
However, the Red Devils have started the 2020/21 campaign slowly, losing their first two matches, including a ili-1 defeat against Tottenham before the international break.
Fernandez was taken in half-time during that game and was later reported to have had an altercation with United manager Ole Gunnar Solskire.
There are question marks over whether United’s main and Portuguese stars will join Newcastle in the northeast face-off on Saturday.
Despite their weak start to the season, Fernandes still has two goals and one assist registered.

“We know of a small opportunity from the outside … you want to create a department.
“I think how we are connected, Bruno said really well the other day, we have to be together. We can’t listen to everyone outside. We just worked with it.
“Bruno has lost two league games since coming to the club and he came in February, but it happened two times in a row.

“But it’s not happening because this group is a group that wants to work hard together, want to be together.”
By reducing the risk of relegation for both the player and the manager, it suggests that Fernandes will likely retain his first place against Newcastle on Saturday.
The 226-year-old is also worried that he will have to disassociate after testing positive for Portugal teammate Cristiano Ronaldo Covid-19 following a recent international break.
It was later dismissed by the Telegraph, the report said, adding that Portuguese players returning to the UK should not be discriminated against.
