Manchester United breezed past Leicester City 2-0 on Sunday, to seal a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League, after a brilliant run of form, that saw us remain unbeaten in the English Premier League since January this year.
Bruno Fernandes got the first goal of the match from the spot, before Jesse Lingard put the icing on the cake, after a rather quiet day on the pitch for the Portugal international.
Fernandes has taken most of United’s penalties since coming in January, and he has scored every single one he’s had to take, which is something special.
The media caught up with the midfielder after the match on Sunday to get him to shed light on how he does it, and he said, “I like the pressure you know? When the keeper leaves the ball close to him, I know he’s afraid.
“He gave me that little bit more confidence I need. Of course they try to do these mind games, but it’s better for me. when they do it.”
Fernandes’s penalty goal against Leicester was his 5th for United this season, and his 14th goal involvement in the Premier League. That’s definitely not bad for someone who’s only been in England for a few months.
