Man United Mid-Fider Fernandes Surpasses Lampard in Premier League History Books With Strike against Liverpool
Manchester united mid-fider Bruno Fernandes has surpassed Frank Lampard in Premier League history books by scoring against Liverpool on Thursday night.
Manchester United took the lead against their arch-rivals at Old Trafford with just 10 minutes on the clock, with Fernandes’ strike flying past Alisson in the Liverpool net with the aid of a fortunate deflection off the outstretched leg of Nat Phillips.
The Portuguese now has 28 goals to his name from 56 appearances across all competitions in 2020-21, which has seen him set a new record in English football.
Fernandes has now scored more goals in a single season than any other Premier League midfielder in history, beating the mark previously set by Lampard at Chelsea in 2009-10.
The 26-year-old also now has 44 goal involvements in 50 top-flight appearances United (26 goals, 18 assists), which puts him third in the club record books behind Eric Cantona (46) and Robin van Persie (45).
