Man Utd fans dub Bruno Fernandes ‘player of the season’ after just 4 appearances

Impressed Manchester United fans have already dubbed Bruno Fernandes their 'Player of the Season' after just four appearances for the Red Devils.

The 20-time champions of English football bought the Portuguese playmaker from Sporting Lisbon last month and the 25 year old has hit the ground running at Old Trafford.

After providing the assist for Harry Maguire against Chelsea last week, Fernandes created another goal against Watford on Sunday and scored his first in the famous red strip of Man Utd from the penalty spot.

That took the Portugal international's tally to 15 goals across all competitions this season, with the £47m man also racking up 12 assists this term.

United's No18 was voted man of the match for his performance against the Hornets at Old Trafford, with 81 per cent of United fans voting for the midfielder in the club's official poll.

Fernandes was also given the highest WhoScored rating of any United player this season for his display, with the former Samporia star awarded a 9.21 out of 10 by the website.

And United fans even went one further, suggesting Fernandes should already be considered for the club's player of the season award despite featuring in just four matches so far.

One supporter tweeted: "@B_Fernandes8 is already @ManUtd player of the season."

While another added: "4 games and already out best player this season."

A third wrote: "Our best player this season, he’s been there for less than a month! Ffs."

One fan even went one further and backed Fernandes for the biggest individual Premier League prize come the end of the campaign. They wrote: "Bruno Fernandes for PFA player of the season."

Despite Fernandes' excellent performance against the relegation-threatened Hornets, other Man Utd fans tipped some of his team-mates to scoop the award due to their consistency over the current campaign.

One man who received a number of shoutouts was Brazilian midfielder Fred, who came in for some criticism last season after joining the Red Devils from Shakhtar Donetsk in June 2018.
