Bruno, cool & sat­is­fy­ing

PUT some Saint Bruno in your pipe and smoke it.

Mar­cus Rash­ford is rightly earn­ing all the love right now for his self­less work towards our na­tion’s fu­ture hap­pi­ness and pros­per­ity.

Not talk­ing ‘lev­el­ling up’ or ‘equal op­por­tu­nity’. Get­ting it done.

But his Manchester United team-mate Bruno Fer­nan­des (above) is still prob­a­bly just shad­ing it on the pitch.

Bruno’s been the pa­tron saint of Old Traf­ford since ar­riv­ing ready-rubbed in Jan­uary – and he ain’t stop­ping.

The Por­tuguese firestarte­r has scored in 12 of his last 20 United starts, in­clud­ing four of his six starts this sea­son.

Like Rash­ford he was on the bench in mid­week, came on, waved his wand for 5-0, then a light sup­per and bed. There should be no is­sues of leg­gi­ness for United or Ar­se­nal (4.30pm) af­ter their Euro com­mit­ments – the Gun­ners even played the re­serves, and both were at home.

But Ar­se­nal aren’t quite catch­ing fire, and their record against the best sides has been poor.

Stick with Fer­nan­des ‘any­time scorer’ at 9/5 (888sport, Uni­bet).

And bet ‘penalty scored in match’ at 11/5 (Paddy) – there’s been at least one in six of United’s nine games so far.

Last week: Win­ners at 12/5 and 5/6
