Bruno Fernandes sparked a MU comeback against Southampton and matched the achievements that many of the top strikers did. MU was led by Southampton to 2 goals in the first half but Bruno Fernandes initiated a comeback to end with a 3-2 victory.
A 1-2 equalizer meant that Fernandes scored in the fifth consecutive Premier League game for Man Utd, matching the achievements that Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic once achieved in the red shirt.
The goal came after the Portuguese midfielder conceded Leicester City, Brighton, Newcastle, and Everton respectively. Fernandes has quickly become a key figure for MU since moving to Old Trafford in January with a clear mark in his gameplay.
