Bruno's goal against Aston Villa places him behind Man United great in goal-scoring feat

Bruno Fernandes' impact at Manchester United has been immense and has arguably been the best player over the past year. 

The Portuguese has registered 33 goal involvements from 30 Premier League appearances following his winner in Friday’s 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

The former Sporting Lisbon man has scored 19 goals and tallied 14 assists in the league, which is a near-perfect record. 

He is however behind one Man United legend, who boasts of a better record. 

According to Opta Stats, Andy Cole is the most prolific player across that same number of Premier League games, with an impressive 37 goal contributions. 

Cole achieved this while playing for former club Newcastle United during the 1993/94 season when he scored 26 goals and registered 11 assists in the first 30 games. 

Former Sunderland starman Kevin Phillips is third on the list with 30 goal involvements, while Manchester City's Sergio Aguero is on 28.

Goal involvements after 30 games

  • Andy Cole - 37
  • Bruno Fernandes - 33
  • Kevin Phillips - 30
  • Sergio Aguero - 28
  • Eric Cantona - 27
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 27

Fernandes can however take pride in his numbers considering he is the only midfielder on the list.
