Bruno Fernandes scored a hat-trick and Paul Pogba equalled the Premier League record of four assists in a match as Manchester United started their season with a 5-1 home win over Leeds United.
The hosts had already gone close twice when Fernandes put them ahead on the half-hour mark, running on to Pogba’s through-ball and forcing the ball past Illan Meslier.
Leeds equalised early in the second half through Luke Ayling’s scorching 25-yard strike – his first Premier League goal. But Man Utd responded with three goals in the next 12 minutes.
Pogba freed Mason Greenwood in behind Leeds’ defence to make it 2-1, before setting up Fernandes, whose shot on the turn just crossed the line before being cleared by Ayling.
Fernandes ran on to Victor Lindelof’s fine through-ball to complete his hat-trick, before Pogba registered his fourth assist by escaping down the left and teeing up Fred.
Jadon Sancho came off the bench for his Man Utd debut on a day when new signing Raphael Varane was paraded him in front of the returning home fans.
