Manchester United winger Bruno Fernandes has won the Premier League Player of the Month award for December.

The January award brings Fernandez total number of Player of the Month awards to four. He also picked up the gong for November too. The player only signed for the club in January 2019.

Fernandes contributed 4 assists to his team while scoring three goals himself, only one from the penalty spot.

The Portugal midfielder has scored 15 goals in 26 games this season across all competitions, helping Manchester United move three points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

"Going into the month of December we were still quite confident but I suppose the Wolves game was quite pivotal," Smith said.

"Had we lost that game we could have lost a lot of confidence but we got the win and that helped maintain the belief we had in the dressing room."

The visit of Everton this weekend has been postponed and the next game for Dean Smiths men will be on January 20th when Villa travel to The Etihad Stadium to take on Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.
