On Thursday night, Bruno Fernandes scored his 28th goal in the 2020/21 season. It will remain in the records as his goal even though his strike took a heavy deflection from Nat Phillips before going into the net.
This goal means that Bruno has the most prolific season by a Premier League midfielder.
Previously, the record was held by Chelsea's Frank Lampard who scored 27 goals across all competitions in the 2009/10 season. Back then, the Blues won the Premier League and the FA Cup.
