Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has named the club’s 3-0 win over Watford as his favourite Premier League moment so far. The 25-year-old joined the Red Devils from Sporting Lisbon back in the January transfer window. And he’s been sensational ever since, boosting the club’s chances of finishing in the top four and securing a return to the Champions League.
Fernandes has been magnificent for United since joining from Sporting, being directly involved in six goals from eight games.
There have been some big moments for the Portugal international, who flourished in key victories over Chelsea and Manchester City.
However, Fernandes has now told United’s official website that the club’s 3-0 win over Watford was his favourite moment so far.
“The game I would like to watch would be the game where I scored my first goal, against Watford,” Bruno said.
“I want to feel – not exactly how I would feel in the game – but I can feel the game, the atmosphere and everything when I score.

“[If I watch this] I can have the motivation to keep training and keep the focus on the return of the game [after the COVID-19 pandemic].”
Many at United think Fernandes will only get better.
The Portugal international will likely be deployed alongside a fit-again Paul Pogba if and when the Premier League returns.
Pogba has been out of action since December.
He will return to the pitch with a point to prove, though, with the 27-year-old a divisive figure among supporters.

“It’s normal when you are in that situation you don’t play like a superstar, because everyone expects from Paul like they expect from (Cristiano) Ronaldo at Juventus or (Lionel) Messi at Barcelona.
“Everyone expects this from Paul in Manchester, because they know he has the qualities for this.
“Also this is confidence in Paul. The team, we have a lot of confidence in Paul.”
United where on an 11-game unbeaten run before the coronavirus crisis.
And the club are confident they’ll be able to pick up where they left off when football comes back again.
