Bruno Fernandes named in Champions League Team of the Week after brace vs Istanbul

Bruno Fernandes has yet another inclusion in a WhoScored TOTW following another outrageously good performance.

Revenge was extracted. Manchester United would batter Istanbul Basaksehir 4-1, taking control of their Champions League group once more.

Sure, the work is not done, though it’s nice to see the Red Devils put in a performance like that; particularly in the first-half, where they were scintillating.

Credit to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who, once again, when staring trouble in the face has picked up the results. These players are still backing their manager and as long as that remains the case, this team will only get better.

It also helps when you have a player like Bruno Fernandes in your team. The Portuguese attacking-midfielder is just sensational, isn’t he? He’d score twice against Basaksehir. The first was a truly outstanding strike.

Once again, Fernandes’ display has meant he is the sole United star named in WhoScored’s latest Champions League Team of the Week. At this point, what else is there to say about him? He’s just so, so effective and we’re truly lucky to have him in our team.

A Bruno Fernandes inclusion in these TOTW’s is absolutely nothing new. We’re talking about someone who is arguably the best player in the country right now in terms of goal contributions.

His 8.84 rating during the Istanbul game is only bettered by one midfielder, Jadon Sancho of all people. Ironically, both are next to each other in the XI selected above by WhoScored. Now I wonder if we can make that dream a reality at club level!

Jokes aside, Fernandes’ brilliance doesn’t surprise us anymore. He’s just a world-class footballer who is making it his mission to restore the glory days back to Old Trafford. You can’t help but admire that.
