Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hailed ‘outstanding’ Bruno Fernandes as Manchester United’s ‘difference-maker’ ahead of this weekend’s Premier League showdown.

Portugal international Fernandes has scored 27 goals in 45 appearances for United since his move from Sporting Lisbon last January.

The 26-year-old has already established himself as one of the stars of the Premier League, with his form helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side climb to the top of the table ahead of Sunday’s clash against defending champions Liverpool.

Klopp first encountered Fernandes while he was still at Sporting and says his ability was clear even then.

‘He’s an outstanding player,’ Klopp said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

‘Before he joined United we played against Sporting on the USA tour and even in that game you could see… wow.

‘Everybody obviously knew of him but that was the first time one of my teams played against him and you could see he was the difference-maker.

‘That’s what he shows now [at Manchester United], he’s settled, very influential player for United, involved in a lot of things.

‘I know people talk mostly about the goal involvements which is very important stuff but his link up in a lot of other situations is important as well.

‘I don’t know him well enough to judge this but he seems to be a leader as well so, yeah, good signing unfortunately for United.’
