Bruno Fernandes breaks social media silence to celebrate win

Bruno Fernandes was fed up of apologies and so were Manchester United fans.

The Liverpool game was a horror show and no words would have been able to accurately convey how hurt and embarrassed Fernandes was by the loss.

His apologies had begun to lose impact too. United fans want action, not words. Against Tottenham, the supporters got what they wanted.

United beat Spurs 3-0, keeping a rare clean sheet and winning with three different scorers getting involved.

Fernandes was thrilled to have a victory to celebrate. And it prompted his first Instagram post since October 21, three days before the Liverpool game.

Key part of United’s win

It would not have been a surprise if Fernandes had been left out of the line-up to face Tottenham.

Jesse Lingard needs game time and the balance of United’s team had been all wrong.

Instead it was Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood who dropped out, with Fernandes retaining his place.

Fernandes justified his selection with a fantastic assist to set up Cristiano Ronaldo’s winning goal.

It came just after Sky Sports had posted a graphic pointing out his supposed dip in form since Ronaldo’s arrival.

Fernandes now has four goals this season and seven assists.

He was involved in the move for United’s second goal too, which saw Ronaldo set up Cavani for his first of the season.

In total he made three key passes, more than any United player.

Keeping quiet on social media over the past week was a smart move from Fernandes.

He let his football do the talking against Tottenham.
