Statman Dave: Telles deliveries can add X-factor

United, of course, added another player from the Portuguese league to their squad last season – Bruno Fernandes – who immediately added a new dimension to the Reds’ corner-taking.

Indeed, Fernandes’s first assist in a United shirt was from a corner: a booming, inswinging cross that perfectly picked out Harry Maguire, enabling the skipper to head us into a 2-0 lead against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

But with the arrival of a left-footed set-piece wizard, United will now have the option for inswinging corners from either flank, thanks to Bruno and Telles.
