Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Bruno Fernandes is just the sort of player Manchester United have been missing - as he hit the net for the third game on the bounce for the Red Devils.

Fernandes has made a huge impact since Solskjaer paid £47million for the midfielder's services from Sporting Lisbon during the January transfer window.

The Portugease international, who started his career with Udinese, fired home an important equaliser at Goodison Park as the Red Devils extended their unbeaten run to eight matches.

Speaking after the 1-1 draw, Solskjaer said: "He's a good player and we have been missing that type of player to do that for us. I'm very pleased with his contribution."

Fernandes' form looks set to be crucial, as United continue their challenge on three fronts this season - sitting fifth in the Premier League, and in the last 16 of the FA Cup and Europa League.
