Fernandes shines for Man United
Despite being on Manchester United’s books for less than two months, Bruno Fernandes has already had a noticeable impact on the Red Devils.
The former Sporting standout has clearly added some much-needed creativity to United’s previously average midfield.
Fernandes’ vision is superb, he also demonstrates a quality work ethic and is not afraid to shoot.
And also, whilst all the praise can’t solely be heaped on Fernandes, it is worth noting that Man United have yet to lose a single game in which the free-scoring midfielder has featured.

The 25-year-old pipped Marcos Alonso, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Matt Doherty and Nick Pope to the award, after netting one and assisting two in three league ties last month.
After being crowned PL POTM for February, Fernandes had this to say:
“Since I was a kid it was a dream to play for Man Utd, and to be there at Old Trafford is the biggest dream of my career.
“When you come to a new club you always want to score, and the first goal is special. It doesn’t matter how the goal is scored, but important is the goal’s worth.
“I’m happy with my start, but from now I need to give more, to be better.” As quoted by the Premier League’s official website.
Fernandes is also the first United player to win said accolade during their debut month at the club since Anthony Martial back in 2015.
