Bruno Fernandes was again, influential for Manchester United on Sunday, as we came from behind to beat Southampton 3-2 at the St Mary’s.

The Portuguese’ 60th minute effort brought United to within one goal of the visitors, who were leading 2-0, before Edinson Cavani added 2 later in the game, to seal an incredible performance.

With the goal, Fernandes has now scored in his five consecutive away games for Manchester United, a feat only three other players managed to achieve during their careers at Old Trafford.

Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ruud van Nitselrooy and Robin van Persie were able to pull off the feat, which further shows the special class Fernandes has now entered.

The midfielder has now scored 7 goals and provided 3 assists in the Premier League, in just 9 matches this season.
