Newcastle United followers on social media flocked, on Saturday afternoon, to mock Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.
Naturally, Eddie Howe’s forces were now in action again.
With spirits high in camp on the back of a triple win streak over the past two weeks, the Magpies made a trip to championship-bound Norwich City, no doubt confident in their chances of picking up four wins on the Tour.
And as things stand on Carrow Road, another three-point distance is exactly what Newcastle is headed for.
The day’s visitors took the lead in the proceedings shortly after the half-hour pass at the hands of Julinton, before the in-brilliant Brazilian doubled the day’s tally to essentially wipe out any remaining hopes of Norwich’s return shortly before the break.

This is the third goal scored by their side in East Anglia, which since, as noted above, has seen Newcastle supporters enjoy some fun at the expense of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.
Portugal international Fernandes of course came under fire again earlier in the afternoon for an frankly dismal display en route to a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates.
Building on Bruno’s Guimarães, who netted for the third time in his last three games on the Carrow Road, a collective claim began to spread across the Newcastle fan base that they, and not Man United, now boast a talented Bruno in the Premier League. :
Best Bruno in the Premier League ❤️
