Bruno Fernandes closes on Rooney as Man United turn it around to thump injury-ravaged Roma

Bruno Fernandes closes on Rooney as Man United turn it around to thump injury-ravaged Roma

The latest series of remarkable statistics surrounding the production of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes have come to the fore online this evening.

Reds run riot

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were of course back in action a short time ago, in a Europa League showdown with AS Roma.

The clash marked a crucial one for both sides, with hosts United eyeing up a first piece of silverware under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the Giallorossi desperate to secure Champions League football for next season.

In turn, the all-action nature of the 90 minutes proved altogether unsurprising.

A pulsating affair eventually saw Manchester United emerge on the right side of a staggering 6-2 scoreline, after taking full advantage of an injury crisis on the part of the visitors.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring at Old Trafford, only for Roma to turn the clash on its head before the interval, courtesy of strikes from Lorenzo Pellegrini and Edin Dzeko:

The Red Devils, though, returned for the second-half with all guns blazing.

Edinson Cavani was first on target, before the Uruguayan notched his brace just past the hour-mark:

Then, it was star of the show Fernandes’ turn to bag his 2nd, before Paul Pogba AND Mason Greenwood got in on the act late on, to all-but book Manchester United’s spot in the final of the 2020/21 Europa League.

Brilliant Bruno

Whilst a number of the Red Devils’ stars – evidently based on the eventual scoreline – shone this evening, it has since come as little surprise to see one in particular take the headlines.

The player in question? Bruno Fernandes.

This comes with a series of eye-watering statistics having come to the fore, highlighting the Portuguese’s remarkable production not only tonight, but as a whole in the colours of Manchester United:
