Bruno Fernandes Named Premier League Player of the Month For February

Bruno Fernandes has been crowned as the Premier League’s Player of the Month for February.

The Portuguese playmaker has taken Old Trafford by storm since completing his £68million move on January 29.

Fernandes was involved in three goals – one goal and two assists – in three appearances in the Premier League for the Red Devils in February.

An energetic display in the goalless draw against Wolves on his debut offered a glimpse into why United had relentlessly chased him with his impact on the team clear to see.

The 25-year-old notched his first assist for the club over a fortnight later in the 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge as the Red Devils completed the double over the Blues.

Fernandes broke his duck for United in the 3-0 win against Watford where he scored a penalty and capped an impressive performance with an assist for Mason Greenwood for the third goal.

The former Sporting skipper has helped rejuvenate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side but has seen any momentum halted due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

He has however refused to take credit for United’s resurgence telling Sky Sports that every player in the club has contributed to the turnaround.

“We can talk about a new start after Bruno, but it’s not about Bruno, it’s about the team,” he said.

”One player doesn’t change a team. A team changes when everyone pushes together for the same side.”

Fernandes adds the Premier League award to the Manchester United and PFA player awards for February.

United are unbeaten in five games and currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea where they remain well in the hunt for a Champions League place next season.
