We’re backing the Bruno double on Sunday with both Fernandes and Guimaraes to be carded. The referee for the game will be David Coote, who last season gave out more yellows per game than any other top-flight official of those to take control of 5+ matches. Coote averaged 4.60 yellows per game in 2021/2022 and has been one of the better referees when it comes to punishing crimes on the football field over the last few years.
Let's start with Bruno Fernandes, the Portuguese playmaker is having an excellent campaign with Manchester United, particularly since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, and was instrumental in their victory over Barcelona on Thursday evening.
Fernandes was booked in that game, and looking back at who the yellows have arrived against this season, we can see a tendency to pick them up in the big fixtures, with yellows brandished against Man City, Newcastle, and Liverpool this season.
Last season in the Premier League, only three players were shown more yellow cards than Fernandes with 10 to his name. This term, the 28-year-old is following a similar path with five in the league, as well as a further two in the League Cup, one in the FA Cup, and in the Europa League. One of the most petulant players in the division at times, don’t be surprised to see Fernandes talk his way into the book on Sunday.
The return of Bruno Guimaraes to the Newcastle midfield will be a huge boost for the Magpies on Sunday. Freshness may also be a factor for the Toon, with them only playing three matches so far in February, in comparison to that of over seven for Manchester United.
Guimaraes has been shown three yellow cards this season in the league, against Manchester City, Arsenal and Leeds. His most recent cards came in the League Cup semi-final against Southampton and again we can see a bit of a trend to pick up cards in big matches.
After arriving at Newcastle last January, the Brazilian was shown a yellow card in four of his 11 league starts and with a trophy on the line on Sunday, he looks a good value proposition to collect another at Wembley.
Combining Bruno Fernandes and Bruno Guimaraes to be carded pays 16/1 with BoyleSports.
