How many goals has Fred scored for Manchester United?

This was Fred’s sixth Manchester United goal since joining the club. It his his second goal this season.

Fred now has more Premier League goals in 2020/21 than Harry Kane, who only has one.

Four of Fred’s goals have come in the Premier League, with two in the Europa League. He has not scored for United in the Champions League.

Looking back at Fred’s goals

Fred’s first ever Manchester United goal came under the manager who signed him, Jose Mourinho.

Fred scored in the 1-1 draw at home to Wolves back in October 2018. This was the only goal he scored under Mourinho.

It then took until February 2020 for Fred to score again, and typically, his goals came like buses, with two being scored in the same game.

This was in a 5-2 Europa League win against Club Brugge, with Fred scoring two late goals to add polish to the win.

One of Fred’s most exciting goals came last season in Manchester United’s 3-1 win away at Tottenham Hotspur.

He scored a vital equaliser as he ran on to fire the ball home after Hugo Lloris had spilled Edinson Cavani’s effort.

Fred then scored on the first day of the 2021/22 season as Manchester United blew Leeds away in a stunning 5-1 win.

The goal was one of four goals set up by Paul Pogba on an August day when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were full of hope for the season ahead.

Fred scored his sixth goal of his Manchester United career under Ralf Rangnick, in the German boss’ opening game.

The midfielder netted his first ever winning goal for the club to seal all three points and send the Stretford End wild.

Fred needs one more goal this season to record his best ever tally for the Red Devils of three in an individual season.
