While United has struggled in recent encounters against City, Guardiola remains cautious of the threat posed by Fernandes.

“He is an exceptional player,” Guardiola said.

“Especially the consistency to play in every single game and every single competition.

“I admire him a lot for that. He is a guy who when he has the ball, something is going to happen. In set pieces, in connections with players up front with [Alejandro] Garnacho, with Rashford, all the strikers they have up there.

“What can I say, he is a important player.”
