The Newcastle United faithful have flooded to social media on Saturday afternoon, to poke fun at Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.
Eddie Howe’s troops, of course, are currently locked in action once more.
With spirits high in the camp on the back of a trio of successive victories over the course of the last fortnight, the Magpies made the trip to Championship-bound Norwich City, no doubt confident in their chances of making it four wins on the spin.
And, as things stand at Carrow Road, another three-point haul is precisely what Newcastle look headed towards.
The day’s visitors took the lead in proceedings shortly after the half-hour mark courtesy of Joelinton, before the in-form Brazilian doubled his tally for the day to essentially kill off any remaining hope of a Norwich comeback shortly before the break.

‘The best Bruno’
It is the third goal netted by their side in East Anglia, though, which has since, as alluded to above, seen the Newcastle faithful enjoy some fun at the expense of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.
Portuguese international Fernandes was of course subjected to heavy criticism once more earlier this afternoon, owing to a frankly dismal display en route to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal.
Upon their own Bruno, Guimaraes, finding the net for the third time in his last three appearances at Carrow Road, the collective claim has therefore begun to spread across Newcastle’s fanbase that they, not Man United, are now in possession of the most talented Bruno in the Premier League:
THE BEST BRUNO IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE ️
