Throughout the 1990's, Alex Ferguson only had one plan when it came to Liverpool: Stopping Steve McManaman.

At the turn of the century, that player's name had shifted to Steven Gerrard, but for different reasons.

Unfortunately for this game, Fabinho is one player who can't be everywhere.

Should Liverpool play their normal 4-3-3 shape — only one player will be charged directly with occupying the spaces Fernandes likes to operate.

There is no doubt Liverpool will have a plan for Fernandes on Sunday, and it could even include a change of shape to allow a double pivot if they feel the threat is significant.

His through ball completion of 15 also shows that if his space can be compressed, his creativity can be stifled.

Yet it's worth pondering whether United now also have their very own McManaman in Bruno Fernandes.
