Liverpool legend John Arne Riise commented on Manchester United’s chances of winning the Premier League this 2020/21 season. According to him, as long as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops still depend on Bruno Fernandes alone, the title will be difficult to achieve.
As is known, the Red Devils recruited Bruno Fernandes since January 2020. As soon as the Portuguese player came to Old Trafford, the team’s performance was immediately boosted, it looked like Bruno Fernandes was the last piece MU needed.
The person concerned showed a slick performance and contributed through goals and assists. This season, his good performance has continued, he even helped the team win the top of the standings from Liverpool’s hands.
Now, MU is at the top with a 3-point advantage over Liverpool, they have the opportunity to widen the gap if they win the match against the Reds tomorrow.
If that happens, then Man United’s chances of winning will certainly be even greater. However, John Arne Riise doubts this opportunity as long as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team still depends too much on Bruno Fernandes.
“Man United are very dependent on Bruno Fernandes. If he is absent for any reason this season, they will be in trouble,”
“That’s why I don’t think United will go up there in May, because they depend too much on that one player. Man City and Liverpool have so many players who can bring the team; Man United only have one,” Riise told Ladbrokes, via Mirror. .
On the one hand, Nemanja Matic emphasized that his team was very ready to take on Liverpool’s challenge. The Red Devils will fight hard for victory to solidify their position at the top of the standings.
“On Sunday we will face Liverpool. This match is the biggest Derby in England and we will compete with them in this match.”
“Through this match, we want to see how far we can go when facing the good teams in this league. I think we are ready for this challenge,” Matic told MUTV.
