Greenwood double helps Man Utd past Burnley

Mason Greenwood's double and Edinson Cavani's late strike gave Manchester United their fifth straight Premier League win as they beat Burnley 3-1 to move within eight points of leaders Man City. The first half was frantic but goalless, and it was United who took the lead just after the break through Greenwood (48), smashing home at the far post from Marcus Rashford's centre and a clever Bruno Fernandes dummy. Burnley were level just 114 seconds later as James Tarkowski rose highest from an Ashley Westwood corner (50), but Greenwood got his second, finding the near post at the right of the box from a deflected shot off Jack Cork (85). Half-time sub Edinson Cavani converted Donny van de Beek's centre at close range for 3-1 in stoppage time (90+3), and the result means that, with...

The Portugal international was fortunate to still be on the pitch, after he raked his studs down the back of Granit Xhaka’s Achilles’. Moments earlier, Fernandes had been angered by a challenge from Cedric Soares that caught him in the face. But Solskjaer admits the midfielder’s reaction could have had serious repercussions. “He’s a winner of course just got to watch it so it doesn’t boil over little bit of a stamp on Xhaka,” Solskjaer said in his post-match press conference. “But that’s Bruno, he wants to win, he wants to tackle. “He’s ...

Bad loser Fernandes won’t accept defeat at Man Utd until trophies are handed out

Bruno Fernandes’ Brilliant Free-kick Seals Victory As Man United Knock Liverpool Out Of FA Cup

As soon as Liverpool’s defender Fabinho caught the leg of Edinson Cavani a yard outside the penalty area, the danger was so clear you could almost smell it. They say those kind of free-kicks are too close to be really threatening. Too difficult to get the ball up and down, apparently. But Bruno Fernandes is a bit smarter than that, a bit better than that. So round the side of the Liverpool wall, he sent his shot. Straight at his own player Paul Pogba, who he knew would duck. Too much power for goalkeeper Alisson to get across. Too much accuracy also. And with that strike a classic FA Cup tie was won. They will not talk about this game as they talk about previous great meetings between these teams. Without supporters everything feels that little bit diminished. But this was a superb ...

Manchester United Knock Liverpool Out Of The FA Cup

  Bruno Fernandes' superb 78th-minute free-kick gave Manchester United victory in a thrilling FA Cup tie with old rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford. Liverpool led a fantastic contest through Mohamed Salah, who then equalised after Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford had struck for the hosts either side of the break. But in a game which had everything last week's drab stalemate between this pair at Anfield lacked, Fernandes came off the bench to have the final word after Fabinho had fouled Edinson Cavani on the edge of the area. Fernandes might have been slightly off the pace in recent games but when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needed his £47m inspiration to come up with another special moment, the Portuguese delivered, bending his shot round the wall and beyond Allison's reach. ...

You Don’t Want Your Rivals At The Same Level – Bruno Fernandes

Roy Keane Shoots Down Comparison Between Bruno Fernandes And Eric Cantona

  Roy Keane believes Bruno Fernandes still has to prove he can do it on the big stage after Manchester United's Carabao Cup semi-final defeat against Manchester City. The former United captain, who was appearing on Sky Sports as a pundit, went on to play down comparisons between Fernandes and former teammate Eric Cantona after the full-time whistle.

Man Utd are dependent on Pogba and Fernandes and have lost their ‘defensive balance’, says Saha

A former Ole Trafford favourite thinks the Red Devils have become too reliant on a talismanic duo in recent months Former Manchester United star Louis Saha believes the Red Devils rely too much on Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes while also losing their "defensive balance". United have endured an inconsistent start to the 2020-21 campaign, picking up just four points from a possible 12 in the Premier League while shipping a total of 12 goals. The Reds nevertheless made it through to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup, and encouraging signs of progress were displayed during a 4-1 win over Newcastle in the top flight on Saturday.
