Bruno Fernandes hilarious message
Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes teased Anthony Martial after scoring in the 2-0 win against Manchester City at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The France international opened the scoring thanks to a blunder from Ederson after being picked out with a clever pass from his Portuguese pal.
Fernandes and Martial appear to be good friends off the pitch, enjoying plenty of banter on social media in recent weeks.
Fernandes took to Twitter after the final whistle to hilariously write: “Manchester is red. Finally you scored with my assist @AnthonyMartial.”
The £46.6million man from Sporting Lisbon delivered another fine performance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and looks like being one of the club’s finest signings in a long time.
He has two goals and three assists in the Premier League since his January arrival.

Emre Can on snubbing Man Utd
Emre Can has revealed he rejected a move to Manchester United because of his history with Liverpool.
“I had three Premier League deals alone, including one from Manchester United,” he told Kicker.
“But I didn’t think about that for a second because of my Liverpool past.”
Can instead move to Borussia Dortmund on loan where the deal is expected to be made permanent at the end of the season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on new additions needed
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United are at least three players away from winning the Premier League title.
The Red Devils stunned Manchester City in the derby on Sunday, winning 2-0. Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay secured the crucial three points for United.
When asked what’s needed to challenge, Solskjaer said: “We feel we’re improving all the time and we know we lack one, two or three players and some experience, to be considered a title contender.
“We know that and we’re not going to start talking about that now.
“We’re going start talking about getting up up the table, getting more points and challenging for that top four because Chelsea and Leicester are too far ahead of us for my liking.”
