Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has named Manchester City as one of the best teams in the English Premier League (EPL).
Fernandes spoke to the media on Friday ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League derby with Man City on Saturday afternoon.
Man United have only lost once in 18 matches since they were thrashed 6-3 by Manchester City at the Etihad last October.
Fernandes is set to lead Erik ten Hag’s men into Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off, and the Portugal international is convinced that the Red Devils can go toe-to-toe with the Premier League champions.
“Man City are one of the best clubs in the league, but it’s about believing in ourselves,” Fernandes said.
“Now, probably you can see a team that has a way to play that convinces the fans and the players it’s the right one that can win games.
“You go into every game and the feeling you’ve now is that we aren’t afraid to play against anyone. In the past, you couldn’t see that. When the toughest games were coming, there was a little bit of ‘can we do it or not?’.”
He added, “But now, if you look at the fans, the players, everyone, you feel that we can play face-to-face with everyone at this moment. We know what this game means for everyone in the city, in the club, for the fans, and for ourselves. It’s been a good moment for us.”
