Bruno Fernandes Scores Exquisite Volley Against West Bromwich Albion

Bruno Fernandes came up with an exquisite equaliser for Manchester United against West Brom on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were flat and 1-0 down just 83 seconds into the game at the Hawthorns after Mbaye Diagne bullied Victor Lindelof in the air.

But the Red Devils pulled level on the stroke of half-time courtesy of their talisman.

After a poor first half, Fernandes reminded everyone of his quality when he produced a stunning left-footed volley that flew past Sam Johnstone in the Baggies goal.


He swivelled his body to get on the end of Luke Shaw's cross for his 14th goal of the season and the technique from the Portugal international was nothing short of sublime.

The former Sporting CP midfielder has been involved in a ridiculous 38 Premier League goals since joining the club just over a year ago.

Of all the players plying their trade in a top five European league, only Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski have had more goal involvements than Fernandes in that period.

He averages a goal or assist every 84 minutes and to dispel the myth that he only scores penalties, no midfielder has scored more goals from open play since he made the move to the English top tier.
