Update on Bruno Fernandes’ injury leaves him questionable for Sunday’s match against Tottenham.

Update on Bruno Fernandes’ injury leaves him questionable for Sunday’s match against Tottenham.

Bruno Fernandes has emerged as one of Erik ten Hag’s most crucial players, and United looked like a different team without him against Sevilla last week.

The Portuguese international was welcomed back for the FA Cup semi-final against Brighton, but twisted his ankle in the first half after landing awkwardly.

Fernandes was able to continue playing after undergoing treatment on the field, but he did not play the full 120 minutes because Ten Hag decided to substitute him during extra time.

Fernandes, United’s best penalty-kick taker from 12 yards, was a shoo-in to take the first penalty kick, a decision that sparked debate among fans as the game was obviously heading to penalties.

It has now been revealed that Fernandes was substituted due to the injury he sustained earlier in the game, and Ten Hag could now miss Thursday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur.

According to ESPN, Manchester United’s stand-in captain is now questionable for the Reds’ trip to London as they pursue a top-four finish in the Premier League.

According to the report, the United camp discussed replacing Fernandes immediately after he incurred the injury and again at halftime. However, the athlete was not interested in leaving the field.

Fernandes was observed limping at Wembley Stadium after the contest, and he will be evaluated by the club’s medical staff on Monday.

Then, a determination will be made as to whether he can train with the team prior to Thursday’s travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

United’s loss of Fernandes would unquestionably be devastating, and the match against Tottenham is a crucial one. A victory over the struggling Londoners would almost certainly secure qualification for the Champions League.

If Fernandes is ruled out, he will presumably miss only one game due to a minor injury. United cannot afford to lose another first-team icon after several months of injury woes.
