Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hailed the impact of midfielder Bruno Fernandes in our 2-0 win over Leceister City after his penalty helped to secure third place for Manchester United.

The Portugal international has been the club’s best player in the Premier League following his £47m move to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window.

Fernandes scored his eighth goal of the Premier League season from the penalty spot after Anthony Martial was brought down by Jonny Evans and Wes Morgan.

Jesse Lingard then netted a second for the Red Devils in the seventh minute of added time.

Former Manchester United defender Neville credited Fernandes for having another decisive impact on a Premier League game despite an otherwise poor performance.

“It’s his most disappointing performance in a Manchester United shirt but he has still contributed,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“He’s got a little skip and hop but he slots the penalty in. There will be relief for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”

The Red Devils finished in third spot and above Chelsea thanks to our superior goal difference.
