Bruno Fernandes has become the first Manchester United player since Cristiano Ronaldo to win back-to-back Premier League Player of the Month awards.

Fernandes also picked up June’s Goal of the Month award for his volleyed effort in the 3-0 win at Brighton.

The 25-year-old has maintained his inspirational form since joining in January, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side closing on a top-four place with four wins from five games since the season resumed.

Fernandes had previously won the award for February, with no player picked in March as the season was suspended early in the month.

His fellow Portugal international Ronaldo achieved the feat in November and December of the 2006-07 season – when he went on to be named Premier League Player of the Season for the first time.

The last player to do it in the Premier League away from United was Mohamed Salah, when he scored eight goals in seven games for Liverpool over March and April 2018.

In June, Fernandes scored once against Tottenham and twice against Brighton, and he has continued his excellent form in the opening fixtures of July with two goals and three assists in two games.
