The Portuguese star is targeted by the opponent's tackles because of his good performance.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his thoughts on putting Bruno Fernandez on the bench against West Ham.

The Portuguese Red Devils midfielder has had good days since joining Old Trafford in January. He has been able to record an excellent ten goals and five assists this season and has been one of his team's best. However, his coach believes he needs to rest. His outstanding performance has led to him being targeted by rival tackles, and now Solskjaer has explained his decision about him.

United boss told reporters: 

“Bruno has been kicked between pillar and post lately. He got a kick against Southhampton and he’s another one that if I don’t have to use him, I’d like not to.

“Rashford is fit enough to be on the bench. We need all the points we can get in these games of course and Marcus held his arm up, with a bad shoulder, and he’s said he’s ready if needed.”

Also, David Degea will not be used in this game and the Norwegian coach explained about him:" 

“The injury he had after Southampton has flared up a little bit so we didn’t want to take a risk with David so we kept him at home.”
