Man Utd ace Bruno Fernandes: “We knew that we needed to push forward” against Brighton.

Bruno Fernandes scored a brace to help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side secure a 3-0 win against Brighton.

The Red Devils were looking sharp from the get go and showed how much they wanted the win by being clinical on the night.  Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes says he is happy with how his side secured a 3-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night. The former Sporting Lisbon midfield maestro continued his fine form at the American Express Community Stadium as his brace as well as Mason Greenwood’s opener helped United register back-to-back three-nil wins in the Premier League.

Fernandes has been directly involved in eight goals in his first eight English top flight games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils (five goals, three assists). And following the game against the Seagulls, the delighted 25-year-old told Sky Sports: “The most important thing is the three points but we played well and the result was good. We didn't concede again which is important. David de Gea made two or three amazing saves, we are very happy.

I was lucky with the first goal and the second goal was amazing, an amazing pass from Mason. “We are fighting for a place in the Champions League and we know we can achieve this.”

On the prospect of forging a midfield relationship with Paul Pogba: he said: I don't want to talk too much about me and Paul Pogba, we are happy to play together but I am happy to play with everyone.

“We can combine together, we have qualities, but we know that we have team-mates who can do well.”

The Portugal international said: “It's not fair for the other guys if we just talk about me and Paul, Fred & Scotty did an amazing job, we are a team they push me to do better.”
