The Red Devils star was quick to stress he’s linking up well with all of his new teammates and not just the Frenchman

Bruno Fernandes admits he doesn’t want to talk too much about his combination with Paul Pogba after he helped Manchester United to another crucial win.

The Red Devils eased past Brighton on Tuesday night, cruising to a 3-0 victory at Falmer Stadium.

Mason Greenwood opened the scoring with a lovely finish in the 16th minute before Fernandes doubled the lead in the 29th minute.

The two then linked up for United’s third, with Greenwood’s cross being volleyed home spectacularly by Fernandes to finish off the scoring.

Fernandes’ brace now gives him six goals in a Red Devils shirt, having played only 13 matches for the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have thrived since Fernandes made the move from Sporting, as Man Utd now sits within two points of fourth-place Chelsea.

Much has been made about Pogba’s return from injury which has seen him link up with Fernandes, but the Portugal star is eager to ensure the focus isn’t just on their pairing. 

“I don’t want to talk too much about me and Paul Pogba, we are happy to play together but I am happy to play with everyone,” Fernandes told Sky Sports

“We can combine together, we have qualities, but we know that we have team-mates who can do well.

“The most important thing is the three points but we played well and the result was good. We didn’t concede again which is important. David de Gea made two or three amazing saves, we are very happy.

“We knew that we needed to push forwards and to try and score from minute one. I was lucky with the first goal and the second goal was amazing, an amazing pass from Mason.

“We are fighting for a place in the Champions League and we know we can achieve this.”
