Bruno Fernandes Shines, Ighalo Yet To Score As Man Utd Crush Watford

Ighalo Yet To Score Man Utd

Bruno Fernandes scored a goal and helped set up two as Manchester United beat Watford 2-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Anthony Martial recorded United’s second goal with a magical finish off his own rebound after Fernandes sent him through on goal, while Mason Greenwood added a late goal after a 1-2 with the Portuguese.

United is now fifth with 41 points, three points back of fourth-place Chelsea.

Watford had a goal chalked off by VAR and remains in the bottom three with 24 points. That’s one point off 17th and two off 16th.

Fernandes, who was named Man of the Match, had four key passes and was perfect in his take-ons and ground duels. Incredible show.

Martial instead made it 2-0 off a Fernandes feed, collecting his own rebound before dribbling Watford dizzy and spinning a chip into the goal.

Greenwood scored his goal in the 75th, carrying the ball 50 yards before working a 1-2 with Fernandes and finishing with aplomb.
