The Brazilian made more tackles (seven) and won more fouls than any of his team-mates.

He also had the second most touches of the ball (95), and covered a lung-busting 6.8 miles during the clash at Old Trafford.

Fred's goal against Palace to his league tally to two - one more than out-sorts Spurs star Harry Kane.
