Gary Neville thinks that Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire are two Man Utd players that are currently “irreplaceable”.

The Red Devils are currently in a rich vein of form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after putting their Champions League exit behind them.

Man Utd have produced impressive performances in their last three matches against Sheffield United and Leeds United in the Premier League and versus Everton in the Carabao Cup.

Those three victories have seen them move up to third in the Premier League table and into the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

And Neville has been particularly impressed with Fernandes and Maguire, who are “irreplaceable” in his eyes.

Neville told the Gary Neville Sky Sports podcast: “They are the two players who I think are irreplaceable. Fernandes is irreplaceable, they are a way off without him. He’s a vital piece of the jigsaw.

“Maguire, I think, you’d know if he was missing. My gut feeling is that they they would miss him enormously.

“I know some people say he’s not the best defender in the league, that he’s not done brilliantly since he came for £80m, but he’s a big presence in the heart of the defence.

“He’s good on the ball, he’s composed and he’s good in the air. He doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, sometimes he gets caught but he’s a good centre back, a really good centre back and a big presence in that team.

“Him and Fernandes, I’m not sure they can [rest them] at this moment in time because Ole hasn’t got the luxury to lose a game unfortunately.”
