Ex-England defender Wes Brown has heaped praise on Bruno Fernandes as he reckons the Manchester United midfielder is returning back to his best.

Fernandes put in a superb display in Man United's 2-2 draw with Aston Villa, with the 27-year-old scoring a brace at Villa Park on the day.

However, Wes Brown, who enjoyed a trophy-laden 15-year spell with the Red Devils, has challenged the Portugal international to maintain that level of performance going forward.

“He was getting himself into those positions where we like to see him,” Brown told Man Utd TV show The Debate. “He was scoring the two goals and bringing some of that quality back that he gave us a lot last season and in probably every game. You could see he was back into it.

“We need to see more from him, he has got to keep that going now, but it was a very good performance from him.

“The first goal, he got a bit lucky with it, but the second goal was fantastic. He was back about the pitch, you could see that energy in him and he was looking to score. Hopefully, we will see that again because he's had a few ups and downs this season.”
