Bruno Fernandes' incredible streak could be about to come to an end

Bruno Fernandes' incredible streak could be about to come to an end after his wife posting a worrying update on Instagram.
Fernandes wore the captain's armband in the FA Cup semi-final penalty shoot-out win over Brighton but was taken off in extra time and ended up taking up a coaching role ahead of the spot-kicks.
However, the Portugal international was seen limping after the game as he headed back down the Wembley tunnel. And his other half, Ana Pinho, has concerned United fans by sharing an image of Fernandes on Monday.
Fernandes was seen sat on the sofa with his leg in a protective boot for his foot and ankle, while there were also crutches and two leg splints in the shot.
The picture was posted with a "recharging" emoji but comes after Fernandes suffered an ankle injury in the first half at Wembley.
ESPN say he was due to undergo tests on Monday but appears to be a major doubt for the trip to Spurs on Thursday.
And if the injury does rule Fernandes out, it will end a quite remarkable run for the midfielder.
According to Transfer Markt, the 28-year-old has NEVER missed a game through injury in his entire career at United, Sporting CP, Udinese, Sampdoria and Novara.
As per the data, he did suffer a leg injury in the 2018/19 season but it did not rule him out of a game. Otherwise, he's only ever been absent through illness or suspension.
Since joining United, he's missed just two days - or one game - because he was ill. He's played 176 times in all competitions, rarely getting a rest.
With the demands of the game so huge, his ability to stay fit is extremely impressive and should be commended.
At the time of writing Erik ten Hag is yet to provide an update on his talisman's fitness but his potential unavailability would be a huge blow for the Red Devils.
