Bruno Fernandes outlines belief Man Utd can win Premier League this season

Bruno Fernandes insists Manchester United "have the chance" to win the Premier League this season.

Despite a tumultuous start to the campaign, United are seventh in the table, just five points behind league-leaders Tottenham.

Crucially, the Red Devils also have a game in hand on each team in the top four, meaning victory in the Manchester derby will hand them the initiative in the title race.

Key to United's hopes of lifting the Premier League trophy for the first time since 2013 are the performances of midfield star Fernandes.

The Portugal international has built on an eye-catching start after his January arrival with a scintillating run of form in the current campaign.

Fernandes, 26, is United's top scorer in the league with seven goals, while he has also registered four assists.

His recent performances earned him a third Premier League Player of the Month award, adding to his triumphs in February and June.

While he is delighted to win the individual accolade again, Fernandes declared his primary goal is winning the league title with United.

"It's difficult to have one of these, so I'm really proud to have my third one," the United No. 18 told the Premier League.

"I will be happy when I win the Premier League. The point to come to England, to such a huge club, was to win the Premier League and I think we have the chance to do it."

Fernandes being named November's Player of the Month means he is the first star to win the award three times in a single year since Tottenham striker Harry Kane achieved the feat in 2017.

Last month started in tepid fashion as United slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal, but Fernandes spearheaded their recovery and picked up four goals and one assist in wins over Everton, West Brom and Southampton.
