BRUNO FERNANDES has the most goals and assists of any Premier League player since his explosive arrival in February.
The Portuguese playmaker's stunning impact at Manchester United has been revealed following more heroics in last night's Champions League win over Basaksehir.
January signing Fernandes has scored more goals (21) than any other Prem rival, and is joint top of the assists chart with Kevin de Bruyne on 13.
Harry Kane is one goal behind and has played 11 games fewer, while De Bruyne has also not been as busy as Fernandes.
But the stats show what a remarkable piece of business the 26-year-old was since joining from Sporting Lisbon for £55million.
He has a total of 34 goals and assists since February 1 in all competitions, three more than Spurs leader Kane.

Next closest is Tottenham's Son Hueng-min on a distant 25 – 17 goals and eight assists.
Fernandes scored twice in last night's 4-1 Champions League thrashing of Basaksehir.
But he passed up the opportunity of a hat-trick by letting Marcus Rashford take the penalty.
He explained to BT Sport: "Of course every player wants to score a hat-trick, but after the last game in the Premier League I told Rashford he could take the next one.
"I remembered that. And also because he is one of the top scorers in the Champions League I think it will be important for him to keep going there, and getting that confidence.
"It doesn't matter who takes the penalties, the most important thing is scoring, and the team scores. When the team scores, I score too."
Daniel James added another goal in injury time as Man Utd won 4-1 to move within a point of reaching the knockout stages.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "We created some great chances and some very nice goals – I'm very pleased.
"We need one more point to go through, but we want to be top of the group."
