United legend Scholes hailed the contribution of Fernandes as he again delivered with another huge contribution.
Pundit Scholes told BT Sport: “He’s been sensational from the very day he signed. He makes the team play football.
“Every time you watch him play, every single game he plays, he affects the game, which someone in that position should be doing.
“The quality he’s got you feel like he’s going to score goals, you feel like he’s going to make goals. He’s been a truly, truly terrific signing.”
Fernandes took full advantage of a defensive mix-up for the opening goal to give United the lead in Turin.
And the Portuguese playmaker scored again after the break with a neat finish.
It was Fernandes’ 21st goal of the season with the attacker again leading their push for glory.
Despite his outstanding individual numbers, however, Fernandes insisted after tonight’s 4-0 win that winning trophies is his priority.
He said: “We know 4-0 is a good result but we have to be aware of what they can do.
“I’ll give Daniel James an assist for the second goal but he was trying to control it.
“My target is to score the most goals I can, that is my position. The only target is to win trophies.”
The 26-year-old has also provided 12 assists during this campaign and is integral to their hopes of winning their first silverware under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Fernandes has been exceptional for United since joining the club just over a year ago.
He recently celebrated his first 12 months at the club and United’s fans will hope there are plenty more seasons ahead for Fernandes at Old Trafford.
