Bruno Fernandes compared to Chelsea legend after man of the match performance against Everton

Following his man of the match performance in the 3-1 victory over Everton on Saturday, Manchester Unitee midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been compared to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

This is according to former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole.

Cole told BT Sport: “He got freed up. We looked at the formation before with Fred and McTominay allowing him space.

“This (goal) is like Lampard in his prime the way he timed it. If you look at Luke Shaw he could have delivered it first time but he didn’t. He waits and waits and waits and Fernandes just reads it, gets in between the centre halves.

“He’s got that instinct from midfield where he is always going to score goals because his timing is excellent and his finishing is top drawer as well.”
