It was a calamitous opening goal for the Spaniards to concede as they failed to deal with a ball over the top from Marcus Rashford.

Real Sociedad goalkeeper Alex Remiro collided with two defenders and allowed Fernandes to fire into the empty net for his 20th goal of the season.

The Portuguese was not finished there though and fired home his second of the match from just inside the area in the second half.

United were in absolute cruise control and goals from Rashford and Dan James completed the rout in Turin.

It was the perfect start to United’s resumption in the Europa League with Fernandes yet again spearheading their attack.

Fernandes star has been a revelation since moving to Old Trafford just over a year ago.

It has been another superb campaign for Fernandes with 14 of his 21 goals this season coming in the Premier League.

He produced a moment of magic recently after scoring a brilliant chip in the draw against Everton.

Fernandes has also provided ten assists in the league as United close in on a top-four finish.

Speaking after the game, Man Utd legend Paul Scholes was full of praise.

He told BT Sport: “He’s been sensational from the very day he signed. He makes the team play football.


“Every time you watch him play, every single game he plays, he affects the game, which someone in that position should be doing.

“The quality he’s got you fee like he’s going to score goals, you feel like he’s going to make goals. He’s been a truly, truly terrific signing.”

The Red Devils’ playmaker has set his sights on helping United win a trophy this season and the side look certain to progress in Europe.

He said: “My target is the trophies and winning trophies will be more important than scoring goals.”
