Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with the impact of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United.
The Portugal midfielder has scored three goals and two assists in six games since joining a £ 47m club at Sporting Lisbon in January.
He scored for the third straight game in United’s 1-1 draw against Everton on Sunday, extending the club’s undefeated streak to eight games.
Solskjaer told talkSPORT: “He scores goals, creates chances, creates goals.
“But I think today he has realized how fast this Premier League is, especially in the second half.
“They did work on him and did it very well, but he could still have found a winner towards the end.
“So he is the type of player who will always be dangerous in and around the surface and score and create goals.”
When asked if the quality of Fernandes had affected his new teammates, Solskjaer added: “100%.
“First of all, his enthusiasm for training, for learning, he wants the ball all the time.
“He is in and around the place, he has a big smile and he has been a big boost for everyone.”
United could have left Everton with nothing if VAR hadn’t ruled out Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s late goal.
A seated Gylfi Sigurdsson was deemed offside by video assistant referee Jon Moss when the shot deflected off Harry Maguire.
A rabid Carlo Ancelotti was kicked out full time by referee Chris Kavanagh for protesting the decision.
Solskjaer said: “I didn’t speak to (Ancelotti), I just shook hands of course.
“It was a drama towards the end. I don’t know the rule 100% but David [de Gea] said he was distracted by the boy in his eyes.
“I probably wouldn’t have been fired after it was a goal, to put it that way, because you hope, with your fingers crossed, that they’ve made a decision that works for you.”
