United come from behind to beat Fulham

Man Utd 2 Fulham 1

Fulham’s impressive first season back in the top flight ended with a defeat at Old Trafford.

Kenny Tete gave them an early lead by beating keeper David de Gea at the near post from Willian’s corner.

But Aleksandar Mitrovic was unable to take a great chance to double the lead when De Gea saved his penalty after Tom Cairney had been tripped by Casemiro.

Manchester United turned the game around, with Alejandro Garnacho firing against the underside of the Fulham bar shortly before the hosts equalised when Jadon Sancho netted after Fred had bundled his way into the box.

Fred then set up Bruno Fernandes, who rounded keeper Bernd Leno and slotted home.

Fulham were unable to find an equaliser in the second half but a 10th-placed finish represents a job very well done.

Fulham: Leno, Tete, Adarabioyo, Diop, Antonee Robinson, Lukic (Reed 66), Joao Palhinha, Wilson (Solomon 66), Cairney (James 80), Willian, Mitrovic (Vinicius 80).
Subs not used: Rodak, Kebano, Cedric, Reid, Dibley-Dias.
