Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes has set a new record for the number of goals scored in a single Premier League season since the well publicised retirement of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 following his strike in the disappointing 4-2 defeat at home to rivals Liverpool.
Fernandes scored the opening goal of the game inside ten minutes but his team could not build on the advantage. He produced a shot with the outside of his right boot for the opener. He was given the goal which deflected off Liverpool defender Nathaniel Philips and into the back of the net. It took his tally to 18 league goals which is more than any other player has scored since Ferguson retired eight years ago. Ferguson was the Manchester United manager for 27 years from 1986 to 2013.
