Manchester United fans were certainly pleased with Bruno Fernandes’ brilliant performance vs Watford as they continue to be impressed by their new signing.
The talented Portuguese only just arrived last month but his impact has been felt immediately with back to back wins in the Premier League.
Supporters have noticed the difference in United’s play when Fernandes is on the field and when he isn’t and it’s safe to say they would much rather his presence.
There were nervy moments vs Watford but the former Sporting Lisbon man was one of the main reasons for all three points remaining at Old Trafford.
The most impressive thing about Fernandes is his intelligence as he seemingly always knows where to be to make the biggest impact.
Can’t believe how well Bruno Fernandes has adapted. Come in and made a difference straight away. Smooth operator.

I can't believe we went from Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira to Bruno Fernandes. The upgrade in quality is insane. He's running the show at Old Trafford, what a signing. 🔥

If we’d have paid up for Bruno in the summer imagine how differently some of those games against the non top 6 would have gone. We could be 10+ points better off.

I hope Lingard & Periera are enjoying watching the game at home because that’s where they’re staying, Bruno’s been here less than a month and he’s set a standard that they just can’t ever reach unfortunately

The connection Bruno Fernandes has with the fans already is insane. Whole stadium chanting his name.

It’s no surprise Manchester United’s form is improving now that they have an actual playmaker further forwards as it’s an area that even fans recognised needed improvement.
United will need to rest Fernandes at certain points and still need good performances so the sooner there is cover the better.
