After 100 games, only Eric Cantona, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Dwight Yorke have better goals + assists than him.

Neville described Fernandes as one of the very best in the Premier League, with United's struggles unfortunately taking some of the shine away.

"You look at him in the Premier League and you put him in great company. You look at those great players on that list - he's the only midfield player," Neville said according to the Mirror.
