Frankly, it is difficult to keep up with all the amazing numbers and statistics that Fernandes is recording at United.
The main figures are now 10 goals in 15 league games this term, which is pretty extraordinary for a midfielder. In the Champions League, he contributed four goals and an assist from the six group games and has an assist to his name in the Carabao Cup as well.
Sky Sports‘ Power Rankings, based on the entire year, have Bruno in fourth spot, which is remarkable considering it did not count his time in January with Sporting Lisbon as it only rates the top five European leagues. Superstar names Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo were ahead of him in the table.
Since his debut in February, only Mohamed Salah (20) has scored more than his 18 Premier League goals, and he has the most assists (14) in that timeframe as well.
His current average rate of goal-involvements per game (1.10) is viewed by Opta as the highest in United’s history in the division, beating Eric Cantona’s figure of 0.80. Little wonder his impact has been compared to that of the talismanic Frenchman.
