Manchester United clashed heads with Fulham at Craven Cottage earlier tonight, hoping to pick a win away from home. Christian Eriksen broke the deadlock in the 14th minute as he slotted the ball past Bernd Leno from Bruno Fernandes’ deflected shot. Fulham equalised through Daniel James in the 61st minute; however, an Alejandro Garnacho goal in the 93rd minute secured all three points for the visitors.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Cottagers.
Manchester United Players Rated In Win Vs Fulham
David de Gea 8
The Spaniard made some out-of-the-world saves to keep his side in the game.
Luke Shaw 7
Had a brilliant first half but struggled against Dan James’ pace in the second forty-five minutes.
Lisandro Martinez 7
A tough guy to get past, Lisandro Martinez hardly put a foot wrong throughout the game.
Victor Lindelof 7
Complemented well with Martinez and he was aerially dominant.
Tyrell Malacia 6.5
Not his natural side. Fulham found it easier to progress down United’s right-hand side.
Unreal passing range and ball-winning capability. He played a crucial role in United’s first goal of the match.
Christian Eriksen 8
A goal and an assist from the Danish international helped secure all three points for The Red Devils. He missed a big chance right at the half-time mark.
Bruno Fernandes 7
Directly or indirectly, he was at fault for Fulham’s equaliser. Played plenty of reckless passes while creating very few good chances.
Anthony Elanga 6.5
Not a great game from the academy graduate, not a bad game either.
Marcus Rashford 5
Awful in 1v1 situations. Took the wrong decision every time in the final third.
Anthony Martial 7
The Frenchman could be Erik Ten Hag’s ideal striker in the coming months. He linked up the play exceptionally well for as long as he was on the pitch while being a constant threat to the Fulham defenders.
Scott McTominay 6
He should have made more of the crosses in the last stages.
Alejandro Garnacho 8
The 18-year-old scored the match-winning goal in the dying moments. The sudden switch of pace was followed by a calm finish – Alejandro Garnacho is destined for the top.
