Gary Neville has explained why Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire are the two ‘irreplaceable’ players at Manchester United.

Portugal midfielder Fernandes has established himself as arguably Man United’s best and most important player following his January move from Sporting Lisbon.

England defender Maguire has also become one of Manchester United’s most regular starters after the club spent £75m to sign him from Leicester City.

Both Fernandes and Maguire played 90 minutes of United’s Carabao Cup quarter-final victory over Everton on Wednesday night and Neville believes they are too important to rest over the festive period.

Speaking on the Gary Neville Sky Sports podcast, he said: ‘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.’
