As Manchester United put Chelsea to the sword for the third time this season last night, plenty of supporters on Twitter were looking forward to a future with both Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford spearheading the attack. Indeed, the Portuguese January signing was making his away debut for the Red Devils and, as per WhoScored, impressed by making 3 key passes at Stamford Bridge – 0.7 above the highest average in the squad up until this point.
Rashford, of course, has been missing through injury since mid-January and is thought to be due to miss at least another month of action but is the top scorer for the club this season and has been heralded by journalists such as Barney Ronay for his ability to run in-behind on the counter. So, should Fernandes be able to replicate the kind of passing he displayed in SW6 on Monday evening, perhaps there is a promising future between the two amid previous problems in terms of creativity for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how a number of fans online were drooling over it.
Fernandes will be even better when he has a more dynamic midfielder behind him and Rashford ahead of him instead of Dan James

We’ve got something special in Bruno. Will be exciting to see him with Pogba and Rashford when they’re back

Bruno reminded me what a real midfielder looked like. Can’t wait until he starts linking up with Rashford.
