Manchester United Fernandes named Premier League Player of the Month


Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been named Premier League Player of the Month for December.

It is the fourth time he has won the award since arriving from Sporting Lisbon 12 months ago.

Fernandes scored three goals in six Premier League appearances in December as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side went unbeaten, winning four games and drawing the other two.

The 26-year-old scored twice in Manchester United’s 6-2 drubbing of Leeds and also found the net in the 2-2 Boxing Day draw with Leicester.

Fernandes also provided four assists in December, including a defence-splitting pass for Marcus Rashford’s injury-time winner against Wolves.

The Portugal midfielder has scored 15 goals in 26 games this season across all competitions, helping Manchester United move three points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

United travel to Anfield on Sunday for a mouth-watering clash with the defending champions, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 4pm.
