Manchester United score brilliant counter-attacking goal vs Brighton


Manchester United are on a ridiculous run of form.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were 11 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

That run of form coincided with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes - who is yet to lose a match in a United shirt.

And it’s no coincidence.

The Portuguese midfielder was terrific once again as United took on Brighton on Tuesday night.

Mason Greenwood had given United the lead before a brace from Fernandes put them 3-0 up in the second half.

And his second goal was vintage Man Utd.

Harry Maguire won a header in defence before Nemanja Matic found Greenwood on the left wing. His back post cross was then volleyed in by Fernandes.

Quite brilliant.

It was like watching Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez.

Following that goal, it brought up the quite incredible stat that Fernandes has registered a goal or an assist every 95 minutes since his move from Sporting Lisbon.

Yeah, he's been a pretty decent signing hasn't he?

United knew a win would put them back level on points with Wolves, who currently occupy fifth spot. They would be just two points behind Chelsea - although the Blues have a game in hand.
