Compilation Of Bruno Fernandes Highlights Shows How Good He Was Vs Real Sociedad

Bruno Fernandes' personal highlights reel from Manchester United's win against Real Sociedad on Thursday night show just how good he was.

When United were drawn against La Real in December it was seen as a tricky tie for the Premier League side, who had dropped down into the Europa League from the Champions League.

On Thursday night it was anything but tricky, as Fernandes was in top form to put the La Liga side to the sword in the away leg, that was being played in Italy because of Covid-19.

The former Sporting midfielder scored United's opening two goals and set them on their way to a 4-0 win, that will mean Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can rest players in the second leg.

As well as his two goals, and a fantastic pass to Daniel James, Bruno's all round game was excellent and there's already a compilation video of his highlights.

Bruno scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season in all competitions, taking him ahead of Paul Scholes mark of 20 goals in the 2002/03 season, with no other United midfielder hitting that mark since.

He also brought up his 51st goal involvement for United since joining last January, which leaves him third on the list in that time, behind just Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

His 21 goals have come alongside 11 assists this season, although he wasn't involved in the other two goals on Thursday night, with Marcus Rashford and Daniel James adding to the 26-year-old's brace.

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, the former Sporting midfielder was asked about his target for scoring this season. "My target is scoring the most goals I can and assist my teammates to score goals too," Fernandes said.

"My position is to do that, to assist, to score goals when I can. The most important for me, my target, is to win trophies. Winning trophies is more important than scoring goals."

Speaking about the result he added, "We don't have to look at the result, we have to look at the performance. We know we don't perform well in some games but in some games we don't get the result we want but play well.

"So we have to grow up, we have to get better and better, and the most important is the result and give you more confidence to go to the next games and try to win again."
