The sight of Jorge Mendes in the directors' box at Old Trafford on Wednesday night was perhaps no surprise given his involvement at Wolves, but it is the super agent's connection to Bruno Fernandes that will interest Manchester United fans far more.

One look at the 25-year-old's stats will tell you why United are so keen to bring in Fernandes six months early to solve their chronic shortage of goals from midfield.

Juan Mata may have scored the decisive goal to take United into the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of Wolves, but it was something of a rarity - and not only because it was the little Spaniard's second of the season.



Pereira's screamer against Brighton in November remains his only goal of the campaign to date having finished last season with only one goal to his name.

Pogba is still waiting to get off the mark after contributing 16 goals last season, although in the Frenchman's defence he has played only eight games due to an ankle problem that required surgery.

The game was only a few minutes old when he raced into the box and touched the ball past John Ruddy only to see the Wolves keeper get a vital touch on the ball that prevented him going through on an open goal.

It was the first goal scored by a United player other than Rashford, Martial and Greenwood in 10 games since Mata and Ashley Young were on target against AZ Alkmaar a month ago.
