Bruno Fernandes was on the scoresheet again for Man Utd in the draw at Leicester City but he thanked two teammates for creating the chance.
Bruno Fernandes paid tribute to Eric Bailly and Edinson Cavani for their roles in his 10th Premier League goal of the season at Leicester City.
The Portuguese midfielder looked to have put United on course for all three points at the King Power Stadium when he latched on to Cavani’s pass and slid a shot past Kasper Schmeichel with 11 minutes to go.
That was the second time United had led against the Foxes but again they were pegged back, with Jamie Vardy’s shot deflecting in off Axel Tuanzebe five minutes from time.
Despite the two dropped points it was another memorable afternoon for Fernandes, who took his tally of goals and assists to 31 in 28 Premier League games for the club.
But he refused to take any credit for his goal, instead praising the work of Bailly and Cavani in the build-up and suggesting there is more to come from his partnership with the Uruguayan striker.
“Edi and Eric, 50% was Eric and 50% was Edi, I take nothing from the goal,” Fernandes told MUTV. “Eric was really good, he comes on the ball, a good pass to Edi, top movement from a striker and a good assist. We start to know each other better and better.”
Despite his latest goal and assist Fernandes was disappointed that United were not able to return from the East Midlands with all three points.
“We are frustrated, we know we had the chance to get three points, it was important for us because we want to win all the games,” he said.
“They have a good team, but we had the chances to win the game and be more than 2-1 at 85 mins. At that score we can concede a goal, we are disappointed but we have no time to be disappointed, we have to be frustrated and we have to do much better in three days.”
