Nope.Fred's game time has suffered from the absence of Casemiro. For the balance of the team, Fred is more likely to be picked when Casemiro starts.
He started 9 games up to January before Eriksen was injured, 9 out of 27. Since then, because of injuries and suspension to Eriksen and Casemiro he's started 11 out of 17.
So, it's not really a surprise that once they were back, he's on the bench again.
5 years... and still people think he's got something to offer.He's been here 5 seasons and the fact there's still question marks over whether he's good enough says all you need to know. A handful of good games each season isn't enough. Like the poster above said if he played for another club putting in the performances he does, no-one would be clamouring for us to sign him.
I'd rather move him on and replace him with a squad option who is good on the ball in tight spaces and can progress the ball under press.
Genuinely don't see it.
