5⃣ for Manchester United
4⃣ assists for Paul Pogba
3⃣ goals for Bruno Fernandes

Manchester, UK | THE INDEPENDENT | Bruno Fernandes scored a sensational hat-trick as Manchester United defeated Leeds United 5-1 and got the 2021/22 Premier League season off to a magnificent and exciting start.

The top scorer from last term carried on where he left off with the Portuguese midfielder setting United on the way to a crushing 5-1 win with a first goal of the season.

Leeds levelled at the start of the second half but another two from the irrepressible Bruno and goals from Mason Greenwood and Fred provided the perfect welcome back for an Old Trafford full house.

It will have whetted the appetite, too, for new star defender Raphael Varane, whose transfer from Real Madrid was confirmed before kick-off, and he was paraded in front of the United faithful to a rapturous standing ovation that set the tone for a memorable opening to the campaign.

Another new face, Jadon Sancho, also made his Reds bow as a second-half substitute in what was a perfect afternoon for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
