Manchester United face Newcastle United when the Premier League returns this weekend. Who will come out on top?
Recently, former Red Devil, Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive on international duty and there were alarming reports for the Old Trafford club.
There were rumors that since Portuguese players were in close contact with the Juventus star, they would have to quarantine as per COVID-19 rules before returning to their clubs.
In such a scenario, Bruno Fernandes would have had to miss the game vs the Magpies and that would have been a huge blow for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, as per The Telegraph, the former Sporting CP star, who played for 88 minutes last night for the Selecao, can feature for Man United vs Newcastle at the weekend.
The renowned British source have mentioned that the 26-year-old will not have to self isolate after Ronaldo’s positive test. So, we can expect him to start on Saturday if his test shows a negative result before the fixture.
Manchester United have been in terrible form in the Premier League this season and we need our best players to start a winning run.
Without doubt, Fernandes is one of the best stars at Old Trafford and his presence is going to be important.
In the current campaign, so far, the £100,000-a-week playmaker (The Sun) has made 4 appearances for the Red Devils and directly contributed in as many goals (2 goals and 2 assists).
