Fernandes is now on 26 after he netted twice in the Europa League semi final first leg against AS Roma - a 6-2 win for United.
The Portuguese slotted home the first goal, along with the fourth from the penalty spot.
Asked about his goal scoring prowess post-game, he told the club website: "I scored 32 at Sporting so I expect to pass that mark!
"My target every time is to do better and better and my target now, as everyone knows, is to win trophies.
"For myself [my target] is to improve every season.
"I think if I score 32 goals in one season, I can do better. I know it's a big number but why not!? If you dream about and fight for it, you can do it.
"I will keep improving on that and trying to do better and better and keep trying to give more assists.
"My best season with assists was 20, I don't know how many I have this season, but I have to reach that level again."
