Bruno Fernandes thanked David de Gea after goal in Man Utd 4-1 Newcastle

Bruno Fernandes thanked David de Gea after his Newcastle goal

Manchester United dismantled Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Cristiano Ronaldo, in his first appearance since returning to the club, stole the headlines.

The legendary striker opened the scoring in the first half, before grabbing his second shortly into the second 45 minutes.

But Bruno Fernandes made sure to get on in the act.

The Portuguese midfielder scored arguably his best goal in a United shirt to make it 3-1.

He picked up the ball 25 yards out, took a few touches and then unleashed a venomous effort that dipped into the top corner.



New footage has emerged of the goal and it's a joy to watch.

An angle from behind the shot shows the amount of dip it had. Fernandes is then captured going crazy, before Paul Pogba copies his teammates' celebration.

Fernandes then made sure to turn towards his own goal and thank De Gea.

The Spaniard responded with a thumbs up.

So, why did Fernandes feel the need to thank De Gea?

The goal simply wouldn't have been possible without the goalkeeper.

De Gea started the whole move with a quite glorious goal-kick which picked out Mason Greenwood.

Around 15 seconds later, Fernandes' strike found the back of the net.

It's no wonder Fernandes was applauding De Gea. That was a stunning pass to set up the counter-attack.

Fernandes expressed his happiness with United's performance in his post-match interview.

He said, per the Metro: "It was almost perfect if we did not concede. We are really happy and the performance in general was really good.

"Newcastle are really organised, defend well but we moved the ball quick and waited for the right moment to hit them."
