Manchester United (11/2 Premier League Outright) midfielder Bruno Fernandes is adamant he is not in a need of rest despite a hectic first 12 months at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese international hit the ground running after his move from Sporting Lisbon last January and is now one of the first names on the team-sheet for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Fernandes started on the bench for the Red Devils (5/1 FA Cup Outright) against Liverpool on Sunday, with the 26-year-old coming on to score the third in a 3-2 win in the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Old Trafford.

The playmaker was asked if fatigue was the reason he started on the bench against the Reds, but Fernandes has insisted he has no need for rest at this stage of his career.

“Tired? At 26 years of age, I can’t be tired,” said Fernandes.

“If I am tired now, when I get to 30 or 32, I won’t be able to play or I will play one game out of every five. No, I am not tired.”

Having secured their progress into the next round of the FA Cup, United switch their attentions back to Premier League duties on Wednesday when they play hosts to Sheffield United (Man Utd 1/4, draw 5/1, Sheff Utd 11/1 – Match Betting).

The Red Devils will then have a quick turnaround, with Solskjaer’s side making the trip to the Emirates to take on Arsenal just three days later.
