Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for Bruno Fernandes’ ability to take set-pieces. The Portuguese was signed in the winter window from Sporting and has since played twice for the English giants.
In the last match against Chelsea, it was his delivery from the corner that saw Harry Maguire score. Meanwhile, following the match, the Norwegian manager showered praises on his player, stating that he is one of the best dead-ball takers that he has seen.
"He's a top player, he wants to get on the ball," the United manager told a news conference, as per Goal.

"But at set-ball delivery he's top class, one of the better ones I've seen. And Harry, we know if he can get a run on the ball he's dangerous and he got the goal."
The Red Devils lay waste to a rather sub-standard Chelsea side at the Stamford Bridge 2-0 with goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire. This win has helped the Old Trafford outfit to close the gap between them and the Londoners to just three points now, giving them a solid chance to qualify for the Champions League next year.
"Of course we want to be in the Champions League next year, and we've given ourselves a chance by this result, but we know that we need to improve. On creating chances, scoring goals. We showed a clean sheet again today, a foundation to build from," he concluded.
