Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has become the first player ever to win the Premier League Player of the Month award four times in the same calendar year.

Fernandes picked up the prize again in December. His outstanding displays have helped the Red devils go top of the league table at this stage of the campaign for the first time since 2013.

In December, Fernandes played six matches and scored three goals as United remained unbeaten, recording four victories.

Fernandes joined Manchester United from Sporting CP in the January window of 2020 and won the award for the first time in February.

After the Coronavirus enforced lockdown from March until May, the 26-year-old midfielder retained his award in June. And he won it for a third time in November before retaining it last month.

His four wins bring him level with former United forward Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as Bergkamp, Paul Scholes, Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Frank Lampard and Jamie Vardy.

The award was first introduced in the third Premier League season and the first ever recipient was former USMNT m head coach Jugen Klinsmann in August 1994, while player with the most wins is Sergio Aguero with seven.
