Bruno Fernandes is confident he can form a fine midfield partnership with Paul Pogba at Manchester United after they combined for a goal for the first time in the 3-0 win at Brighton.

Pogba set Fernandes up for United's second goal in their stroll against the Seagulls and in only their second start together they were both outstanding at the Amex.

The Portuguese playmaker netted twice in the win to continue his remarkable start to life at United and his partnership with Pogba is already beginning to flourish, but Fernandes insists to focus on just those two is unfair to the rest of the midfield.

"Paul is an amazing player but I don’t want to talk too much about me and Paul because it’s not fair on the other teammates. I think Paul thinks the same way. We’re really happy to play together but I’m happy to play with everyone," he told Sky Sports.

"Paul has such good qualities and we know he’s so important for us, I think we can combine together, we have qualities and we can play together, but we know we have some teammates who can do very well when we’re out.

"It’s not fair just to talk about me and Paul. Fred and Scotty [McTominay] did an amazing job before the season stopped, Nemanja [Matic] is a guy who’s doing very well and we have Andreas [Pereira], Jesse [Lingard] and Juan [Mata] who can play No. 10 and have such good qualities, they can do a lot for the team and it’s not fair to talk about me and Paul, we are a team, they push us to do better, it’s about teamwork."

Fernandes has now been involved in 10 goals in 13 games since signing for United after his double at Brighton. He had hit the post before scoring his first, via a deflection, but his second goal rounded off a scintillating United counter-attack.

Harry Maguire cleared to Matic with a header, before the Serbian's hooked pass sent Mason Greenwood clear. He broke down the left before finding a cross to Fernandes to volley home.

"The first goal was lucky but the keeper was lucky with my first shot that hit the post. I'm happy," said Fernandes. "There was a good job from Paul in the first goal, the ball came back to me, he knows I will be there, the second goal was amazing with Mason’s pass.

"I'm happy for my goals but I'm more happy for the result, we’re fighting to be in the Champions League and we know we can achieve that."
