UNITED KINGDOM: Manchester United staged a remarkable comeback to secure a 2-1 victory over Fulham in a Premier League clash. Despite Fulham taking an early lead through Kenny Tete’s near-post header from a Willian corner in the 19th minute, the outcome had minimal impact on the league standings, as United solidified their third-place position while Fulham settled for a respectable tenth-place finish.

The game took a dramatic turn when Casemiro fouled Tom Cairney in the box, awarding Fulham a penalty in the 26th minute. However, United goalkeeper David de Gea displayed exceptional skill by saving Aleksandar Mitrovic’s spot-kick, marking the Serbian striker’s fourth penalty miss this year.

Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho narrowly missed scoring opportunities, but it was Jadon Sancho who restored parity with a close-range shot. The winning goal came in the 55th minute when Bruno Fernandes expertly chipped the ball into the net following a precise pass from Fred.

The second half witnessed United’s continued dominance as they relentlessly applied pressure on Fulham. Erik ten Hag’s squad will now shift their focus to the upcoming FA Cup final against Manchester City, where they will aim to add another prestigious trophy to their collection, having already triumphed in the League Cup earlier this year.
