‘The point is to score goals, not hit the bar’ – Bruno Fernandes aims dig at Brighton after setting PL record with last-gasp winner


Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes this evening aimed a less than subtle jibe at Brighton & Hove Albion, after the midfielder’s late, late penalty secured all 3 points for the Red Devils at the Amex.

United escape

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men made the trip to East Sussex a short time ago, for their latest Premier League outing.

The Manchester giants of course headed into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, after falling to a concerning 3-1 defeat in the club’s season opener versus Crystal Palace last weekend.

And, as outlined above, when all was said and done this afternoon, this is precisely what United managed.

To say that their 3-point haul proved deserved, though, would be a major stretch.

A frankly staggering game of football at the Amex eventually saw a last-minute spot-kick prove the difference between the sides.

After Solly March appeared to have bagged a thoroughly deserved share of the spoils for Brighton with a 95th-minute equaliser, Harry Maguire’s header at the other end was inexplicably handled by Neal Maupay in the hosts’ box.

Following a VAR check, a penalty was correctly awarded, with Bruno Fernandes having stepped up to slot away his ensuing effort with typical poise.
