United defender “Luke Shaw” admits he’s ‘baffled’ by Bruno Fernandes stats

Manchester United star Luke Shaw admits Bruno Fernandes had incredibly done well and he’s baffled by his great statistics.

Luke Shaw has enjoyed his most impressive campaign to date at Old Trafford and his tally of five assists thus far is his highest since he joined the club in a £30m deal from Southampton in 2014.

Fernandes leads the way on 11 and is the club’s top scorer with 22 goals in all competitions this term.

The Portuguese playmaker has been a sensational signing for the Red Devils, scoring 34 goals in 61 appearances for the club since his £47million arrival from Sporting Lisbon.

It simply means the midfielder has contributed 33 goals and assists in his 39 appearances this term.

What an incredible contribution and start by a player from another league, he’s unarguably the best player in Man United shirt right now.

Shaw said: ‘We do talk a bit. ‘But honestly, the guy’s numbers are unbelievable, what he’s doing and how he’s doing it.

‘I said to him [after beating Real Sociedad 4-0]: “Bruno I’ll be honest you weren’t good today but you scored two goals – I just don’t know how you’re doing it.”

Shaw had this believe that some people are too focused on stats and says he feels valued by people within the club.

‘It’s so true. I was speaking about it with Paul Pogba,’ said Shaw.
‘We were both saying how we think people in football understand the game and how important that player is that doesn’t get many assists or goals.

‘But a lot of the outside world of football is all about stats.
It’s understandable because they watch it and they want to see them things but I’ve just got deal with it.

I would love the fans to be back so bad because I’m missing the noise. Hopefully I can score soon and I want the fans in to celebrate because the lads were saying it’s not normal when you score.’
