Bruno Fernandes delight over playing for ‘biggest club in England’ as Man Utd stars arrive at training after Chelsea win

BRUNO FERNANDES arrived for training at Carrington this morning having tasted victory for the first time as a Manchester United player against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last night.

The £55million January buy played his part as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side stifled the frustrated Blues at an edgy Stamford Bridge.

And the 25-year-old couldn't hide his delight at finally being part of the set-up at Old Trafford.

He told Sky Sports after the match: "I feel great, it's a difficult game, a great team, and we need to win to keep forward in this way.

"We can do much better with the ball, but here it was a good game. I feel good, I play for the biggest club in England and I am really happy, it's a dream come true."

Fernandes notched the assist as his delivery was headed home by skipper Harry Maguire to give United an unassailable lead in the second half.

And Maguire was full of praise for his new team-mate, saying: "The quality on the ball he brings, technical ability, the presence he's brought in, he's a leader, long may it continue.

"I've missed a lot of chances this year, it was a matter of time before I scored one."

Fernandes was driven into training by fellow Portuguese Diego Dalot just hours after the huge win wearing a pink hoodie - and knowing that the hard work continues with the Club Brugge match just around the corner.

Maguire drove himself in after his eventful night that saw him controversially get away with a kick out at Michy Batshuayi - before nodding home for 2-0.

David de Gea arrived with fellow Spaniard Juan Mata, having kept United's seventh clean sheet in their last ten games.

Eric Bailly reported for duty following his long-awaited return to the side.

Meanwhile, Phil Jones drove his bright yellow motor into Carrington knowing that his first-team opportunities are likely to now be even more scarce after Bailly's impressive performance.

Among the fleet of arriving stars was Marcus Rashford, although the England man is not expected back for some weeks yet.

United kick off their Europa League round of 32 campaign on Thursday night against Club Brugge, before welcoming Watford to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The victory at Stamford Bridge takes them to within three points of the slain Blues, and just two behind fifth-placed Spurs.
