While Manchester United's overall transfer record has been inconsistent in recent years, Bruno Fernandes' impact at Old Trafford cannot be denied.
United haven't lost a game in which the Portuguese midfielder has scored one goal, won eleven and drawn two and he will clearly be a man marked on Sunday at Anfield.
Fernandes has been responsible for 31 per cent of Man United's creativity in the league this season in terms of expected assists, with the next highest Anthony Martial on just nine per cent.
One area that has perhaps gone unnoticed is his off-the-ball influence, with Fernandes ranked sixth in the Premier League when it comes to pressuring opponents on the ball.
This could well play into the Reds' hands, however, with Jurgen Klopp's side likely to dominate possession in Sunday's game.
The matches where Fernandes has offered the least creatively have been the games where he has recorded the most pressures this season.
In four games against the big six this season, Fernandes has accumulated just 0.2 assists..
