Watch Bruno Fernandes fool Copenhagen keeper Johnsson by NOT jumping before striking crucial Man Utd penalty

THREE things in life are certain: Death, taxes and Manchester United scoring a penalty.

Or perhaps that should be Bruno Fernandes scoring a penalty...

Man Utd were forced into extra-time in their Europa League quarter-final clash with Danish side Copenhagen after being frustrated for 90 minutes.

With United struggling for answers to their drought up front, they yet again turned to Fernandes after being awarded a penalty.

It was the 21st spot-kick United have won in 2019-20 - the highest tally in any of Europe's top five leagues.

But Fernandes, cool as you like, mixed up his pre-penalty routine to leave Copenhagen stopper Karl-Johan Johnsson baffled.

So often since January, Fernandes has hopped before striking the ball from 12 yards out.

But on Monday night he simply charged in and thundered the ball home.

Johnsson was left helpless to stop the ferocious effort, which sealed victory - and a spot in the last-four - for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Co.

The strike was Fernandes' 11th goal since joining from Sporting Lisbon.

A barely-believable SEVEN of those have been from penalties.

And former Man Utd star Phil Neville claimed Fernandes' secret is that he mixes up his styles all the time, to keep goalkeepers - who research this sort of thing - guessing.

Neville said: "Bruno Fernandes is a brilliant penalty taker.

"He has different styles. He gives the keeper no chance.

"The technique is fantastic."
