“I think today Paul was top. The first goal he makes a good skill, he comes off from a player so easily,” Fernandes after the game said.

“But we all know the qualities he has. I think it is not in doubt.

“I hope people are not in doubt on the qualities of Paul because we know he can play, he can help us and he can play really well. He was [involved] in both goals.

“In the penalty, you see one of the best he can do, cover the ball and going away from his player, and I think he will give more and more and more with the confidence coming game after game.”

Fernandes now believes his side are ready to deliver on expectation.

He added:

“I think we are building something important. We know that. The most important for us is building a team. Building a group of players who take care of each other.

“Today it was Eric [Bailly making a stoppage-time block] before it was David [de Gea] saving that ball. The main thing is the group has to be together.

“As I sit in the stands in the last two or three minutes, everyone is shouting and hoping to don't concede a goal and to take care of the ball.

“Everyone wants the three points, everyone wants that win and this is what it's about. We have to build this more and more.

“I think it was tough but we have to learn from here. Also from the Leicester game (on Boxing Day which ended 2-2), we have to do much better. We have some situations to close the game. You have to close.”
