Bruno Fernandes stars in Manchester United’s win over Brighton by Justin Palmer Published

To see so many players sprinting forward to get on the end of it was fantastic.

Ahead of gameweek 32, with only seven games remaining in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United faced a hard trip away to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton, where the visitors have not been able to take a point away from the hosts for the past two seasons.

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Bournemouth at Old Trafford, before they travel to Aston Villa in the top flight.

They were mired in a major slump before his signing, but are now on a 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions, including three straight wins.

Fernandes then curled a free kick over the bar before turning home the second goal from the edge of the box in the 29th minute after being teed up by Paul Pogba.

A TALISMANIC SIGNING Since making his Reds debut in February, Bruno Fernandes has been directly involved in more goals across all competitions (10) than any other Premier League player - six goals and four assists. Now at the 69th minute, the hosts came close to the scoresheet when Leandro Trossard teed up Aaron Connolly, David de Gea's flying save didn't allow Brighton to get close to the net.

It was part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and was charged with protecting consumers from abuses by financial institutions. It thus vacated the judgment of the Ninth Circuit Court and remanded the case for further proceedings.

Former United defender Phil Neville believes Fernandes is now one of the best midfielders in the league.

Gomes says he has modelled his playing style on former Barcelona and Spain great Andres Iniesta , adding that his childhood heroes were Juventus and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo and former Brazil duo Ronaldinho and Robinho.

"Now, he (Fernandes) is lighting up the whole place".

United are also looking more solid at the back with eight clean sheets in their last 13 league matches.

"I think we show it every time we walk on the pitch now, what a team we can be and what type of football we can play. But the team is improving, we're in with a shout for the Champions League next year and we still have the FA Cup and Europa League to play and the team is improving, the players are coming back and the style is better". I think Paul thinks the same way. "It was a great pass by Nemanja, a great cross from Mason and fantastically finished by Bruno so I'm very, very happy with all the goals".
