Premier League: Manchester United 4-1 FulhamPosted: December 12, 2018
Things start looking slightly better for the Red Devils after 4-1 victory against Fulham on December 8th at Old Trafford. This is the first victory for United in five league matches, after one loss and three draws against Arsenal, Crystal Palace, and Southampton. Manchester United have now climbed up to #6 in the league tables, with 26 points, while Fulhman remains bottom of the League with just 9 points.
Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri described the Saturday game as a match between ’11 lambs and 11 wolves. The wolves ate the lambs.’
On the other hand, United manager Mourinho started the game with world cup winner Paul Pogba on the bench, but allowed Romelu Lukaku to take part in the game. The latter scored a close-range goal from Juan Mata’s cross just before half-time, his first goal for United at Old Trafford since March.
Even without Pogba, United showed an impressive display this time. The score opened with Ashley Young driving home only 13 minutes after the start of the match. The Red Devils doubled their advantage with Juan Mata converting a Marcus Rashford cross in the 28th minute.
Fulham managed to score twice – once grace to substitute Aboubakar Kamara, and another to Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, in the 67th and 68th minutes, respectively. Marcus Rashford sealed the score to 4-1 in the 82nd minute, with a powerful strike from a tight angle.
