Bruno Fernandes closes on Rooney as Man United turn it around to thump injury-ravaged Roma

 

The latest series of remarkable statistics surrounding the production of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes have come to the fore online this evening.

Whilst a number of the Red Devils’ stars – evidently based on the eventual scoreline – shone this evening, it has since come as little surprise to see one in particular take the headlines.

The player in question? Bruno Fernandes.

This comes with a series of eye-watering statistics having come to the fore, highlighting the Portuguese’s remarkable production not only tonight, but as a whole in the colours of Manchester United:
