Bruno Fernandes feels his Manchester United team-mates deserve more credit as his promising partnership with Paul Pogba continues to steal the headlines.

The Portugal international has shone since moving to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon during the January transfer window, scoring five goals and registering three assists in eight Premier League appearances.

Two of those goals came either side of the break at Brighton in another impressive display by the Portuguese as United won 3-0 boosted their Champions League hopes, Mason Greenwood having opened the scoring on the south coast.

The three-month enforced break due to the coronavirus pandemic has helped the Red Devils, with Pogba returning from injury to join Fernandes in midfield and their relationship on the pitch has got fans and pundits purring.

However, when asked how excited he was about forging a relationship in midfield with Pogba, Fernandes said: "Paul is an amazing player but I don't want to talk too much about me and Paul because it is not fair enough on the other team-mates.

"Of course Paul has such good qualities and is so important for us and I think we can combine together, we have qualities and we can play together, but also we know we have some team-mates who can do very well when we are out. I think it's not fair on the other guys if we talk just about me and Paul."

On his performance, the 25-year-old added: "I was lucky for the first goal but also the keeper was lucky for my first shot - the ball hit the post! So I think I am happy.

"It was amazing. But it was a good job from Paul. In the first goal, the ball came back for me, he knows I will be there to shoot. And the second goal was an amazing assist from Mason, an amazing pass, and I did a good shot.

"Of course I am really happy for my goals, but I'm more happy for the result because the team deserves this and we are fighting for the place in the Champions League and we know we can achieve this."

Asked about Fernandes' second goal, Solskjaer said: "Great pass by Nemanja, great cross by Mason and fantastically finished by Bruno. Very, very happy, with all the goals to be fair."
