Erik ten Hag’s men made 510 passes with a success rate of 84%. On the other hand, Villa made 353 passes with a pass accuracy of 78%.

United’s charge and resilience in the second half were masterminded by Fernandes, who grabbed the third goal to launch his side into the next round.

The Portuguese had 69 touches of the ball and completed four long balls.

Fernandes, in what was an attacking masterclass, had four shots on target and made one key pass.

The playmaker was also incredible from a defensive standpoint. He won four ground duels and won three tackles.

The player’s defensive work rate was evidenced by the number of times he tracked back and looked to help Diogo Dalot on the right flank. This is even more impressive considering the right wing is not Fernandes’ natural position yet he still contributed significantly from there.

Fernandes got one assist and crowned his performance with the goal.

Tonight, the 28-year-old showed why Ten Hag trusts him unconditionally and why he was a big miss during Sunday’s defeat. Hopefully, Fernandes has a similar impact against Fulham before he goes off with Portugal for the World Cup.
