Fernandes scored and assisted in the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest but was quiet in their last outing, a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Despite having a limited impact at the Emirates Stadium, he proved his quality once again at the Estadio Algarve for Portugal.

In the 12th minute, he was on hand to assist Goncalo Inacio for the opener, doing it in some style as he used the outside of his right foot to guide a cross onto the head of the defender.

Fernandes has proven key throughout much of his time at United and fans have been quick to hail his skill once again.
