But just a few months later, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked and United were effectively out of the title race, well ahead of rivals Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Under Ralf Rangnick, the Old Trafford giants are once again trying to find their identity.

But amid a difficult campaign, Arsenal legend Henry has insisted only Ronaldo, David de Gea, Fred and Bruno Fernandes have managed to bring back the glory days to United.

Before Thursday’s game against Burnley, Henry told Amazon Prime: “I think, Bruno Fernandes can [take credit].

“Fred, for me, has finally reached the level people expect him to be in recent games.

“But I will have to stay with De Gea [as my pick for United’s best player this season].

“I know people are talking a lot about Ronaldo and scoring late in the game to win.

“But De Gea has put them in those positions, those situations so Ronaldo can win at the end of the game.”

Ronaldo, although – along with Fernandes – came on for Fierce criticism from United legend Gary Neville after rushing off the field after a 1-1 draw with Newcastle.

But Henry jumped to the defense of the Portuguese duo, saying: “As always, it has to be the team…

“I don’t think it’s right for a player at the end of the game to be eliminated because he helped the team win the game.

“I think it has to be a team effort and a lot of people, for me, are helping you understand what, and I won’t say because some people might get it the wrong way, but sometimes it’s a bit too much.

“It’s too easy to attack Ronaldo, it’s too easy to attack Bruno Fernandes – who are serving.

“When you see the numbers, [Jadon] Sancho, [Anthony] Martial and [Marcus] ashford has less goals [Maxwel] Cornet for Burnley, a team that doesn’t usually hold the ball and doesn’t really dominate the game. “
