Again carried by their Portuguese leader, Manchester United has relaunched in the Premier League.
The figures of Bruno Fernandes make you dizzy. With his brace against Real Sociedad on Thursday in the Europa League, the Portuguese leader of Manchester United could boast of being involved in as many goals as Lionel Messi since his first match with the Red Devils a year ago. He again inflated his exceptional statistics in the victory against Newcastle (3-1) on Sunday, allowing MU to return to 10 points from City, the broad leader.
After a signed opening score Marcus Rashford (30th) and a signed equalizer Allan Saint-Maximin, on a bad referral from Harry maguire (36th), Bruno Fernandes deflected a ball on Daniel James’ goal at the hour mark (57th), before converting a penalty obtained by Rashford (75th). Alone Anthony Martial, aligned at a point in the absence ofEdinson Cavani, did not shine. The French international has been silent on 10 of his last 11 matches …
Thierry Henry’s record in sight
Bruno Fernandes is thus at 15 goals and 10 assists this season in the league and, if he continues his momentum, can approach or break a rather crazy record held by Thierry Henry, who had finished the 2002-2003 season with 24 goals. and 20 assists for Arsenal in PL. The 98 world champion had finished 2nd in the Ballon d’Or behind Pavel Nedved… In the absence of the title of champion, the Portuguese has the opportunity to explode the counters in the last 13 matches of the season.
