Bruno Fernandes has made Premier League history after being named the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for December 2020.

The Manchester United midfielder has become the first player to win the award four times in a calendar year, having also done so in February, June and November 2020.

“Three goals and four assists was a complete month,” Fernandes said. “Scoring and assisting your team-mates is perfect. I want to achieve other trophies and awards but Iโ€™m really happy to make history.”

Fernandes began December by inspiring a 3-1 comeback win at West Ham United as a half-time substitute, assisting Paul Pogba for the equaliser.

He then scored twice and created another in a 6-2 victory over Leeds United, before being involved in all three goals against Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Man Utd are three points clear of champions Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, ahead of their trip to Anfield on Sunday.

The Portuguese topped an eight-man shortlist that included Anwar El Ghazi, Emiliano Martinez, Ben Mee, Marcus Rashford, Mohamed Salah, Tomas Soucek and John Stones.
