Chants of 'Bruno' were belted out at Old Trafford as Manchester United cruised into the last-16 of the Europa League on Thursday night.
Bruno Fernandes, the Red Devils' £68million marquee January signing, pulled the strings for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side once more.
Following a long transfer saga between United and Sporting Lisbon plus the hefty price tag, all eyes have been fixed on the Portugal international.

Would he be able to live up to the hype? Would he be able to make an instant impact? And ultimately would he be able to help them mount a top-four challenge?
After just five games the answers to all those questions are a resounding yes. The 25-year-old has not disappointed. He has delivered from the moment he entered the side.
Since making his debut in the stalemate against Wolves, Fernandes has created the most chances out of the United squad.
He has produced 10 chances with midfielders Fred, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata the next best with seven each.
Prior to his arrival United lacked creativity in the middle of the park with a link between midfield and attack noticeably absent.
But in Fernandes, United appear to have found the spark that they have been missing.
