Fernandes felt the performance in an entertaining game was a sign of the strength in the United squad and he was impressed with Van de Beek's movement, watching him closely before replacing the Dutchman.
“We have a really good squad and we have options. If you look at the bench and the first XI today and the ones at home we have a really good squad, it will not be a problem if we change the team or someone is tired because we have really good players," Fernandes told MUTV.
“Donny had a great game, playing in the position I play watching him he moves really good, he played really well. It's important for us. If I was in the position of Donny I would not be happy at all but the most important is doing what he does today, coming in and helping the team."
