Manchester United legend Gary Neville has advised coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to get 'three or four' new players like Portuguese playmaker, Bruno Fernandes.

The Portugal international grabbed a brace in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Brighton, continuing his incredible run.

Since joining the club in January from Sporting CP, Fernandes has scored five goals in just eight Premier League appearances and he is yet to lose a game with United.

And Neville thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's needs to add more players of Fernandes' quality.

"This team is a lot more likeable than the one which was here two years ago when you thought Manchester United's recruitment had lost direction," he told Sky Sports.

"But I would urge some caution. Manchester United are sixth in the Premier League, they have a squad which is improving with young players.

"But there is still some work to be done in the transfer market to get this team to a title-winning team – which has to be Manchester United's ambition.

"There is more needed and a lot more needed: three or four players of high quality of the Bruno Fernandes type to get them to the point where they can challenge."
