Bruno Fernandes Graciously Allows Marcus Rashford To Claim Goal v Everton

Bruno Fernandes may have split Fantasy Premier League managers across the country with his interview after Manchester United's 3-1 victory over Everton.

The midfielder has revealed that he is happy if Marcus Rashford wants to claim the Red Devils' second goal. Fernandes crossed the ball and it snuck in at Jordan Pickford's far post, potentially brushing Marcus Rashford's head on the way.

So far, it looks like the Portuguese will be awarded the goal, which would make it his second of the game after an earlier header had drawn United equal following Bernard's opener for the Toffees.

The 26-year-old told BT Sport after the encounter: "Marcus can take the second goal, not a problem for me."


After Fernandes' brace, he assisted Edinson Cavani to wrap up the victory with his first goal for the club. The Uruguayan scored on the counter as Everton threw players forward in search of an equaliser.

If the goal goes to Fernandes, it will mean he now has an impressive five goals and three assists after seven Premier League matches this campaign.

The three points take Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team onto ten points from their first seven games in the top flight this season, and could be vital to the manager keeping his job.


Solskjaer has been under severe pressure after a series of unimpressive performances, including a particularly embarrassing defeat to Turkish Super Lig side İstanbul Başakşehir in the Champions League earlier this week.

The Red Devils will now go into the international break with a win under their belt, and the Norwegian may have won himself some more time at the helm.
