As the final regulation minute of the first-half between West Bromwich Albion and Manchester United beckoned, Bruno Fernandes came up clutch to secure an equaliser against the Red Devils.
Some of Man United’s defenders made up for their woes after conceding in a shaky manner, as Harry Maguire drove forward down the left-flank before slotting it through to Luke Shaw.
In-form Shaw marched down to the byline before lifting a cross into the area, Fernandes was rewarded for sticking himself right in between Kyle Bartley and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
The ball looped over, leaving Fernandes to fix his eyes upon it as it was in mid-air before launching the ball into the back of the net with a remarkable, instinctive volley.
It’s a superb finish from the midfielder, hooking Shaw’s cross past Johnstone on the stroke of half-time.
