LEGEND IN THE MAKING
Excited Paul Scholes hopes Bruno Fernandes can become a legend at Old Trafford after another superb performance last night.
Scholes said on BT Sport last night: “He looks a special talent, he looks like he can be a hero with the fans as well.
“You look at your Cantonas, your Wayne Rooneys, these people who are idolised by the fans, you hope that in future he can become a player just as good as them.”
GOOD MORNING, MAN UTD FANS
Another game, another goal from the spot for Bruno Fernandes.
The Portugal midfielder opened up the scoring against Club Brugge from the spot after scoring from 12 yards against Watford on the weekend.
It came after Simon Delli pulled of a save by sticking his arm out.
He was sent-off and the tie was all but over.
There was a memorable moment for Odion Ighalo as he netted his first goal for United and then dedicated the moment to his late sister Mary.
Mary died in December aged 43 and Ighalo pointed to the sky and revealed a T-shirt dedicated to her.
Goals from Scott McTominay and Fred double wrapped up the 5-0 thrashing.
A Prem clash against Everton is next, before United have to play Wayne Rooney’s Derby in the FA Cup
League games against City, Spurs and Sheffield United are to follow meaning by the end of March they could have seen off two top four rivals – or be out of the race themselves.
Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes was mocked by Chelsea fans on Twitter for copying Jorginho's penalty style.
The Red Devils new Portuguese ace seems to have taken inspiration from the Blues vice-captain as he has a very similar stuttering run-up.
Fernandes scored United's first goal in their 5-0 Europa League rout of Club Brugge as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side made it into the Europa League Last 16.
The Stamford Bridge faithful took to social media to voice their displeasure.
One supporter said: “Surely Jorginho has a case for suing Fernandes for copyright infringement now.”
Another added: “Jorginho has definitely been giving Bruno Fernandes private lessons on how to take a classy penalty.”
A fan even went as far to say: “I hear Bruno Fernandes has Jorginho posters in his bedroom.”
Manchester United 5-0 Club Brugge
United sealed their path into the Europa League Last 16 with an emphatic rout of ten-man Brugge.
Odion Ighalo stole the headlines with his first United goal.
He dedicated his strike to his dead sister Mary by revealing a picture of her on a T-shirt under his playing top.
Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring from the spot before Ighalo, McTominay and two late strikes from Brazilian Fred added the gloss on the scoreline.
A good night at Old Trafford for the Red Devils and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be pleased with his side's performance.
Manchester United 4-0 Club Brugge.
It's a fourth for Manchester United.
Contrary to earlier reports Brazilian Fred did make the starting line-up and he has made his presence count with a late goal at Old Trafford.
The tie was killed off once United scored a couple of goals after the Belgian side gave them the opening thanks to a farcical red card for Deli, who gave away a penalty for deliberate handball.
