This has seen him set a new record in English football.
Fernandes sets new record
The midfielder has now scored more goals in a single season than any other Premier League midfielder in history.
He beat the mark previously set by Lampard at Chelsea in 2009/2010.
The 26-year-old also now has 44 goal involvements in 50 top-flight appearances for United (26 goals, 18 assists).
This puts him third in the club record books behind Eric Cantona (46) and Robin van Persie (45).
He has established himself as one of the best players in Europe since joining United for €55 million from Sporting in January 2020.
The Portugal international has hit 40 goals in his first 78 outings for the Red Devils.
He has also set up a further 25 for his teammates.
Fernandes will have the chance to add to his tally in United’s final three fixtures of the season.
He will start with a home encounter against Fulham on Sunday.
