The Portuguese International just won another player of the month award for the third time since January. He is now the third player in the history of the competition to have won the award 3 times in a single year. But that is not the history he has made in England.
As we all know, the Premier League is one of the most difficult leagues to play in. Potentially, any club can lift the title at any given time. This is why it has been dubbed as the hardest league to play in. For Fernandes to keep putting up word class performances in this league is excellent.
Since he came to United, he is the first player to win 3 player of the month awards since Cristiano Ronaldo. But this is not the history the Portuguese International has made at the club. But the sheer number of achievements and records he has broken deserves recognition.
He, along with Andrew Cole, are the only players in the history of the Premier League to have 26 direct goal involvements in their first 24 matches. Take note that the league has had some of the best players in the world for a long time and no one, other than Cole, has done this before.
