The Portuguese midfielder was on target for the Red devils from a spot-kick in their 3-0 thrashing of Aston Villa at Villa Park.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men became the first team in the English topflight division to win four consecutive games by a margin of three or more goals.

United's unbeaten streak now extends to 17 matches in all competitions with Fernandes playing a key role in their good run of form.

The Portugal international has now been involved in 13 goals for Manchester club, more than any other player during that period.

And in June, Fernandes bagged three goals since the Premier League returned after the three months break due to the global pandemic.

Solskjaer's side are now a point within the Champions League places, and are behind Leicester City who they will face at the last game of the season to determine the top four team for the 2019-20 campaign.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Man United broke the Premier League record of most penalties awarded to a team in a single season when Bruno Fernandes converted his controversial spot-kick against Aston Villa.

The penalty was United's 13th of the season and no team have ever reached that figure in terms of taking a spot-kick from nine-yards during a campaign.

Villa were firmly in contention to earn at least a point in the match until Ezri Konza was adjudged to have fouled Fernandes in the box despite the VAR team checking the incident.
