Aaron Ramsdale has given Welshman Bruno Fernandes the perfect start to victory as Manchester United captain.


Bruno Fernandes scored a long-range effort in a drama-filled 2-0 easy win against Arsenal.

In a pre-season friendly in the United States, “Manchester United” took the lead from a long-range shot by their new captain.

This is Portugal’s first game since Eric Ten Haag received the belt.

But it was Ramsdale who had to save when Fernandez’s effort fell just outside the box.

The Arsenal keeper got a hand on it, but it wasn’t hard enough as it went over the bar and United took the lead at the MetLife Stadium.

Soon after, Jadon Sancho raced in to make it 2-0, and he didn’t hide his glory further.

Gabriel kicked the air and made a clearance after the ball hit the England player from the top.

Facing Ramsdale from a tight angle, Sancho fired it into the top of the net, but the Gunners keeper made an easy effort at the near post to make it 2-0.

Fernandes was named United captain this week after Harry Maguire lost the armband.

The England international was furious with Ten Haag’s decision, which has kept the defender in the starting line-up since taking charge last summer.

Ramsdale realized his mistake after scoring

However, the Dutch Red Devils may feel vindicated in their decision after finishing last season with the best clean sheets in the Premier League.

Fernandes took over the armband last season and became United’s captain in his own right, although he was officially recognized as the skipper.

He showed his leadership skills at half-time when he joked that he pushed his manager away from scolding the match official.

It’s further proof that Ten Haag isn’t afraid to make big decisions, even if it does leave Maguire’s future in limbo now.

As for the new arrivals, only Mason Mount started for the Red Devils from the summer signings.

Andre Onana has joined Inter Milan but was not in the squad for Saturday night’s game against Arsenal.

As for the Gunners, Kai Havertz made his second start after scoring his first goal for his new club in a friendly against the MLS stars.

Jurrien Timber is also included in the starting line-up along with Declan Rice, who joined West Ham for £105m.
