Bruno Fernandes says he and Paul Pogba can do “great things” at Manchester United (20/1 – Premier League 2020-21 Outright) as the duo prepare for Sunday’s 16:30 Premier League clash at home to Arsenal.
It has been a mixed start to the campaign for the Red Devils, who have suffered 3-1 and 6-1 defeats to Crystal Palace and Tottenham respectively but have also notched up victories over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.
United are on a four-game unbeaten run across all competitions heading into Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford and a third league win of the season could see them end the weekend in 10th position, depending on other results.
France international Pogba has garnered much media attention this term, having been in and out of the starting XI, with questions over whether he and Fernandes (17/10 – Anytime Scorer) can operate effectively in the same side.
However, the Portuguese star, who has been a regular since joining the 20-time English champions in January, insists the duo can help the club achieve great things.
Fernandes told Sky Sports: “It’s always a pleasure being in a team with him because I can learn a lot from him, and he can learn a lot from me. Together we can do great things.”
United are winless in the past four league meetings against Arsenal (D2, L2), but the Red Devils are unbeaten in 13 home league games against the Gunners since a 1-0 defeat in September 2006 (W8, D5).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is without defender Alex Telles, who has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating, while Anthony Martial serves the final match of a three-game ban.
Arsenal, who are three places and two points better off than United in the table, is expected to recall a number of his first-team players after resting them for Thursday’s Europa League win over Dundalk.
