Bruno Fernandes has been one of the best signings for Manchester United in recent times. The Portugal star has been blazing guns for the side ever since he has been signed and breaking records seems to be his regular job at the office. Now, here's one more day that Bruno broke and this time he went on to eclipse Cristiano Ronaldo's record. Here's how! So Bruno converted a penalty into a goal at the 52nd minute of the EPL 2021 match against Aston Villa. With this, he scored 25 Premier League goals during the game and that too within 48 matches.

Talking about the match, Manchester United won the game 3-1 at Villa Park and ruined Manchester City's plan for winning the title. Manchester United dominated the possession by 59 percent and the rest was held by the home team. Had Manchester United lost the game last night City would have lifted the EPL 2021 title.
