In the 30th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Leeds, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took the lead against their historic rivals.
Victor Lindelof headed the ball into an open Scott McTominay in midfield after a clearance from Illan Meslier, the United academy graduate then drilled the ball across the park to Paul Pogba.
Pogba instantly showed the mercurial ability that he possess with a wonderful first-time pass over the top, sending the ball through to Bruno Fernandes.
Fernandes controlled the ball brilliantly before taking the ball left and firing a strike at goal, the ace’s effort struck the leg of Meslier and bundled into the back of the net.
? BRUNO! ??
It just had to be him…
