Manchester United midfield maestro, Bruno Fernandes has won the Premier League Player of the Month for December 2020.
The Portuguese became the first player to win the award four times in a calendar year, having also done so in February, June and November 2020.
He beat the likes of Anwar El Ghazi, Emiliano Martinez, Ben Mee, Marcus Rashford, Mohamed Salah, Tomas Soucek and John Stones to the award.
The 26-year-old netting three goals and making four assists in six Premier League matches for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s unbeaten December run (four wins and two draws).
“Three goals and four assists was a complete month,” Fernandes said after receiving the award. “Scoring and assisting your team-mates is perfect. I want to achieve other trophies and awards but I’m really happy to make history.”
Fernandes began December by inspiring a 3-1 comeback win at West Ham United as a half-time substitute, assisting Paul Pogba for the equaliser.
He then scored twice and created another in a 6-2 victory over Leeds United, before being involved in all three goals against Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
