Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes’ remarkable run of form has seen him rise to the top of Europe in a crucial statistic.
The Portuguese magician has proved his ability as a world-class talent ever since arriving at Old Trafford but doubters still remain.
United recently secured a crucial win vs West Ham and it’s safe to say Bruno was instrumental in that victory.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men headed into the break 1-0 down and it was only when the former Sporting Lisbon man was brought onto the field that things changed.
Bruno inspired his teammates to a 3-1 comeback win which sent them into the top four spots and he did it with style.

Given how Bruno’s been accused of being overrated and simply taking advantage of Manchester United’s many penalties to bump up his numbers, this statistic clears that right up.
The talented midfielder is clearly more than just a goalscorer even and deserves to be talked about as a remarkable playmaker.
Many are hesitant to give him that label despite the constant comparisons with Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne.
Nonetheless, United fans recognise Bruno’s importance to the side and the hope is he can remain influential throughout the season.
