Bruno Fernandes is celebrating Manchester United 6-2 comeback win over AS Roma in the first of the Europa League semi-final at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

The 26-year-old Portugal international has been in a consistent form for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January 2019.

Manchester United’s semi-final curse under Solskjaer looked set to continue when Lorenzo Pellegrini’s penalty and Edin Dzeko’s sixth Old Trafford goal cancelled out Fernandes’ brilliant opener to hand Roma two away goals before half-time.

But Manchester United rallied after the break as Edison Cavani levelled with a superb first-time effort before Fernandes bagged another brace.

Pogba then powered home a precise header from Fernandes’ cross before Greenwood ran on to Cavani’s pass and drove home United’s sixth, making them the first side to score six goals in a major European semi-final since Real Madrid in the 1964 European Cup.

Portugal midfielder took his social media handle to celebrate the first leg victory.

Fernandes has now taken his goal tally to 26 goals a new personal best on the goal front this season but the former Udinese man will be hoping to continue his scoring form next outing set against arch-rivals Liverpool who will pay a visit to Old Trafford on Sunday.
