The Portuguese international has been the turning point for the Red Devils this season as since his arrival they have been a completely different side. Fernandes was rested in the game against LASK but will surely feature from the start.
The Frenchman has been brilliant since his return from injury and his partnership with Bruno Fernandes has been one of the reasons behind Manchester United’s recent form. The 27-year-old made his first appearances in the competition when he came off the bench against LASK so he will be eager to produce a match-winning performance in this game.
The Danish footballer was brilliant ion the round of 16 against Istanbul Basaksehir as his brace helped Copenhagen to turn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg. His form in this game would be important if the Danish club are to make the first semi-final appearance in their history.
