Manchester United have made it a 3-0 lead against Leeds inside 20 minutes thanks to Bruno Fernandes, shaping up the re-ignition of this historic rivalry to end in a very one-sided manner.
Dan James cut out a sloppy pass across the halfway line to spark a counter-attacking opportunity for the Red Devils, playing the ball to Bruno Fernandes.
Fernandes flicked it on to Fred, with the Brazilian driving forward before threading the ball into Anthony Martial with a fine pass, the forward was tackled and the ball spilled out to Fernandes.
The playmaker drilled the ball into the bottom corner with a brilliant first-time finish to pile the early misery on to Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
This came after Scott McTominay scored a brace inside three minutes to thrust the Red Devils into what’s now become a position that they simply can’t lose hold of…
Ruthless Manchester United ?
Bruno Fernandes makes it three and the Red Devils are rampant!
