Man Utd matchwinner Fernandes: If I was Van de Beek, I'd be unhappy

Manchester United matchwinner Bruno Fernandes praised Donny van de Beek after their FA Cup victory over Liverpool.

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."
