After ninety-minute period of game play at the City Ground, goals from Antony and Dalot earned the Erik Ten Hag men a comfortable 2-0 victory over Forest.

However, Bruno Fernandes’ outstanding performance against the relegation-threatened team particularly delighted United fans more.

The first-half goal was scored by Brazilian winger, Antony, who reacted quickly to Martial’s save attempt by poking in from close range.

The Red Devil’s winger also contributed to the second goal when he provided Dalot with a diagonal pass, and he blasted home past Navas for his first Premier League goal.

At the other end, Awoniyi and Felipe also had scoring opportunities for Forest, but failed to capitalise on it, and they were eventually outclassed in the middle by Eriksen’s intelligence and Fernandes’ vigor.

On social media, Bruno Fernandes was chosen by Man United supporters as the game’s standout performer after the match, and he came close to grabbing man-of-the-match honor.

⭐️ Player of the Match, Bruno Fernandes
▪️96 touches, 8 in opposition box
▪️57/72 passes completed
▪️9x possession won
▪️5 shots, 3 on target
▪️302 PL chances created since debut (6 today) – only De Bruyne (308) created more in that time

The Portuguese attacking midfielder finished second in the voting to Antony with a 42 percent share of the vote, but went on to earn Sky Sports’ MOTM award for his performance at the City Ground.
