And Man United's official Twitter account made sure that statistic was made aware to the rest of the league.
They uploaded a picture of the Portuguese star celebrating his penalty, accompanied with the caption: "Them: Bruno doesn't do it in the big games.
Them: Bruno doesn't do it in the big games- Manchester United (@ManUtd) March 7, 2021
However, Man United's tweet didn't go down too well with supporters slamming the post as the player scored just a spot-kick against Man City.
One social media user wrote: "Celebrating a penalty ffs this club is really dusted."
A second said: "We're getting bantered by a penalty merchant and a club that's 11 points behind us I cba with football anymore."
A third added: "Just a penalty always a penalty."
Another tweeted: "Again, it was a penalty you doughnuts."
Fernandes has now bagged 16 league goals this season as he enjoys an ultra-prolific campaign.
And speaking after securing three points, he spoke about his team's form against the 'Big Six'.

He told Sky Sports: "Maybe people will now say 'United is finally performing against the big six' because we won.
"But maybe we performed better against other teams and we don't win the games.
"Today we scored the games and we don't concede and this is what football is all about. Against Liverpool we had chances to score and didn't score, one for me and one from Paul [Pogba], great saves from Alisson and we don't score, 0-0.
"Today we had two chances to score, we had some more but we don't do really well, but we scored from chances and win the game. Maybe against Liverpool we had more chances to win the game, but still we perform better.
"As I said before the game in an interview, the league is not a sprint. If it's a sprint we lose straight away in the beginning of the season because we lost two games! It's a marathon and there's lots of games to go now. We have to do our best and not think about others."
