Fernandes, 26, joined United in January from Sporting Lisbon in a move which cost the Reds £49.5m as per TransferMarkt.

Since Fernandes’ arrival just 10-months ago, he has gone on to have a huge impact on his new side’s on-field performances after being directly involved in 26 goals in 27 matches in all competitions.

Fernandes was back in action last night after the international break when his side faced a tricky and in-form Newcastle United.

United headed into last night’s game knowing they desperately needed both a win and a good performance and they did not disappoint with Fernandes perhaps being the pick of the bunch.

The 26-year-old midfielder started the game and put in yet another fine display after bagging an assist and getting on the scoresheet himself late on after finishing off a brilliant United counter-attack.

Despite Fernandes’ wonderful performance, he was unlucky not to come away from the game with a hattrick after a first-half marginal offside ruled out a rocket of a goal and then saw a second-half penalty saved by Darlow.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, Fernandes was asked about his penalty miss, he said: “I want to put the ball more in the corner but it was not good enough.

“Congratulations to him to be first to save a penalty in the Premier League from me. That’s 11 taken and one missed. Now people can say I can miss a penalty.”
