Bruno Fernandes has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water since his big money transfer to Man Utd from Sporting CP in January of 2020.

In the 2019/20 season, he scored 12 goals and recorded eight assists in 26 starts for the Old Trafford side, while in 2020/21 he has already scored 16 and set up a further nine in 25 starts.

He has rejuvenated a previously abject Man Utd side into genuine title contenders as they currently sit second in the Premier League behind Man City.

Nobody has contributed to more goals and assists in the Premier League since Fernandes' arrival last year.

This weekend, he successfully scored a penalty against Newcastle's Karl Darlow, who remains the only goalkeeper to have actually saved a Fernandes penalty since he moved to Man Utd.

So far in his Man Utd career, he has taken 17 penalties and scored 16 of them.
