Bruno Fernandes really is a Manchester United player.

Already he embodies the never say die spirit associated with the club.

He scored an injury time penalty to give United a dramatic 3-2 win over Brighton.

Brighton had equalised moments earlier, appearing to have denied United a win.

Fernandes sent this message to supporters on social media after the game.

This is the type of win which will help build spirit at United, and kickstart our season.


As Fernandes rightly acknowledges, it was not a great performance from the team by any stretch.

But to get the win was crucial, and sometimes winning ugly is a trait you need.

This was Fernandes’ first goal of the new season, and he also picked up an assist, his second of the campaign.

Next up is a trip to Brighton in the cup, and then Tottenham at home next Sunday.
