Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to talk that Bruno Fernandes should be rested after his display against Liverpool.

The Portuguese midfielder endured a frustrating evening at Anfield as the Red Devils drew 0-0 with the Reds on Sunday.

There have been calls to rest Fernandes in recent weeks, but Solskjaer has defended his talisman, saying he will not be given a break because it is not needed.

"His form is very good, he was just voted Player of the Month," Solskjaer explained, as per Goal.

"He's not tired, no, no chance. He is one of the players that runs and covers the ground in every single game, he's very good at recovering and recharging his batteries.

"If he scored his free-kick or if it just had a little air on the ball when Luke [Shaw] put the cross in, he'd have been lauded as the best player in Premier League again. Since he's come in, he's been absolutely immense. He's not tired and if I ask him he'll say there's absolutely no chance that he's tired.

"He's expected to create goals, score goals and sometimes the margins are against him. That free-kick, I saw that one in! There were a couple of passes that he played through and it was marginal as to whether the player was on or off[side].

"So he's always on the verge of creating something, even when he loses the ball, and that's the position I want him in and that's what he's been told to do. He has to be the creative one. I want him to play the passes he sees."
