Fernandes has been fundamental to United’s resurgence that sees them top of the Premier League table ahead of their trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool on Sunday.
In December, Fernandes’ three goals and four assists helped United win four and draw two of their six league matches in the month. The 26-year-old has 15 goals across all competitions this season for United.
