Jonny Evans has now scored three goals in his last seven games, a scoring record that matches Wayne Rooney, which has lead the manager to compare him to Steve Bruce.

“Jonny Evans is capable of doing that but it’s only this season that he’s emerged as a goalscoring centre-back,” he said. “We’ve had a few in the past – Vida and Steve Bruce way back. It’s nice to get a defender who can weigh in with a few goals.”

In the 1990-1991 season Bruce scored an impressive 19 goals in all competitions, with 13 of those in the league. He scored 51 goals for United in nine seasons for United, which is more than Teddy Sheringham and Louis Saha, and across his entire career scored an incredible 113 goals! Evans has now scored… 4.
