Marcus Rashford was the hero for Man United on Tuesday night after his late goal handed them all three points in their clash with Wolves.
The win took Man United second in the Premier League table with the goal again involving midfielder Bruno Fernandes who set up his teammate late in the game.
Fernandes now has seven assists and ten goals in the Premier League this season and has been outstanding since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January.
The Portuguese midfielder has firmly cemented himself as a fan favourite thanks to his goals and assists but also the passion and desire for the club he has so frequently displayed.
Following the winner on Tuesday night, some eagle eyed United fans spotted Fernandes’ wild celebrations and it’s safe to say they absolutely loved his reaction.

Fernandes however didn’t have his best game in a United shirt despite the assist. Speaking last week following United’s draw against Leicester, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he will take the frustrating elements of Fernandes game given how frequently he delivers.
“He creates chances, scores goals and takes risks – which any Manchester United player should be allowed to do and be brave enough to do. He is definitely a brave boy. He sees the pass.
“Sometimes I might tear my hair out and say that there is an easier pass to the right or to the left or back but you cannot take that away from Bruno Fernandes.
“You want him to be the x-factor who has players ahead of him making runs so I am very pleased with his influence this season and this year. He is always there supporting his team-mates as well.
“That is also part of the team. He does have players ahead of him making runs and giving him opportunities to play those passes. It is not just down to Bruno. We have to remember that he has come into a team that helps him as well. We all have a role to play and he is playing his role to the best of his ability.”
