Bruno Fernandes on the ball.

Bruno wins Man-of-the-Match award on debut

Saturday 01 February 2020 20:30

Bruno Fernandes made an instant impression on the Manchester United fans after being voted our Man of the Match on his debut in the 0-0 draw with Wolves.

Although the Reds did not break the visitors down, the 25-year-old showed some of his qualities in a couple of different positions in midfield, managing a number of positive passes and testing Rui Patricio in the Wolves goal, a keeper he knows very well from his time at Sporting Lisbon and Portugal.

Bruno had five shots, more than anybody else on the pitch, and also the highest amount of overall passes (88) and passes in the opposing half (70), highlighting his influence.

The Opta statistics also showed he was involved in 24 duels, again the most of anybody on the field, and nine more than his closest team-mate (current Player-of-the-Month Fred).

Showing defensive aptitude, he surprisingly made more clearances than any of his colleagues (3) and also picked up a yellow card.

For the first time, supporters could opt for any of the Reds involved on the day, rather than the three nominees from the MUTV studio.

The new innovation led to more votes in total but Bruno was a clear winner, ahead of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fred.

United 0 Wolves 0


The Reds are held at home after going agonisingly close to winning it at the end.


1. Bruno Fernandes - 48%
2. Aaron Wan-Bissaka - 13%
3. Fred - 11%
