Shearer says Fernandes is making the players around him better.
“He’s had 10 starts, he’s got four goals himself, four assists because of the class pass he can see and pick out,” the pundit added.
“He keeps everything flowing, everything moving forward and he’s making the players ahead of him better players.
“They’re creating more chances, they’re scoring more goals because of this.
“Have a look at this forward pass into [Anthony] Martial – he pings it in, fizzes it in and that’s what you want as a forward.
