Man Utd star claims prize to become first three-time winner in calendar year since 2017

Bruno Fernandes has won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award for the third time in 2020 after claiming November's prize.

The Manchester United star scored four goals in as many matches, netting twice and providing an assist in a fine performance at Everton before getting on the scoresheet in wins over West Bromwich Albion and Southampton.

Fernandes, who only moved to Old Trafford at the end of January 2020, is the first player to win the award three times in a calendar year since Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane did so in 2017.

'We can win the title'

"It's difficult to have one of these, so I'm really proud to have my third one," said Fernandes, who is now targeting a team achievement of winning his first title with United.

"I will be happy when I win the Premier League. The point to come to England, to such a huge club, was to win the Premier League and I think we have the chance to do it."

The Portuguese adds to his EA SPORTS awards from February and June after selections by a panel of experts and club captains were combined with those in a public vote.

He topped a six-man shortlist that also included Ben Chilwell, Jack Grealish, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Angelo Ogbonna and James Ward-Prowse.
