Fernandes nets twice in Man Uniteds 3-0 win at Brighton

Share

Harry Maguire led United's charge with a long pass to Paul Pogba, who in turn fed Fernandes for a fierce drive that cannoned back off the post.

Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009 and Wayne Rooney in 2010 each memorably finished off moves on the break at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium, and now we have Bruno Fernandes in 2020 on the south coast.

"That's what I've done all my life more or less, working in football, and sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't".

Heaping praise on Greenwood in a post-match interview, Solskjaer said, "The boys played some exceptional stuff".

Fernandes' second goal was a particularly spectacular counter-attack and was something that the manager also commented on, "His second goal was good defending on a set-play and we know we've got pace and we wanted to counter quickly".

"He played fantastically. we know when he gets his face up and looks forward that he's unsafe, but his hold-up play, general play and link-up play was great", Solskjaer told United's website.

Greenwood scored the team's opener in the 16th minute while Bruno Fernandes smashed a brace as Manchester United recorded a comfortable win away from home.

"If you'd offered us more than a point per game from our first three matches against that opposition, I would have snapped your hand off", Potter told reporters in a news conference ahead of Saturday's trip to bottom-side Norwich City.

The campaign angrily denied it had been duped, however. "These phony ticket requests never factor into our thinking". Racial tensions have roiled the nation following the police killing of a black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis.

With a run-in that includes games against Bournemouth, Aston Villa and West Ham, Solskjaer's men could enjoy a memorable conclusion to the campaign as they chase success in the Europa League and the FA Cup as well.

"He's a special talent".

"He's still only 18 so we will see more from him".

Maguire nearly made it two with a header that looped narrowly wide and in the 29th minute Brighton cracked again.

Gomes was once billed a future Manchester United first-team regular having impressed for the club's youth teams in recent years.
