The Danish midfielder has found an impressive start at Old Trafford after his summer move from Brentford.

Christian Eriksen believes his complementary qualities with Bruno Fernandes have helped them form a solid midfield duo.

The pair have formed United’s midfield unit under Erik ten Hag, helping United claim four consecutive wins in the Premier League.

Eriksen and Fernandes have both managed to hit impressive numbers for both defensive and attacking actions. But Eriksen believes the key to his strong partnership with Fernandes lies in their different footballing qualities.

“Some people see us as very similar players, but they probably only look at the stats and don’t see us, the player and the qualities,” Eriksen said.

“We have different qualities, a different style of play and, with Bruno and in general, I think I’m learning to get to know all my team-mates better. 

“We’re starting to get that connection. With Bruno, it’s a good connection and it’s nice to have such a good footballer in front of me.

“I think, from my own point of view, it’s only been a few months but it feels like I’ve been here longer. 

“It’s to do with the club, the people working for the club, the team. In general, I’ve been made to feel very welcome since day one and I felt at home straight away.”
