Manchester United welcomed Fulham at Old Trafford in the FA Cup quarterfinals earlier this evening as they hoped to secure a positive result at home. The Red Devils made a solid start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.
Aleksandar Mitrovic finally broke the deadlock for the visitors in the 50th minute. However, both Mitrovic and Willian was sent off by the referee in the 72nd minute. Man United made their numerical advantage count and scored three goals in the final quarter of the match thanks to a brace from Bruno Fernandes and a goal from Marcel Sabitzer. The contest ended with Erik ten Hag’s men earning a 3-1 win in front of their home fans.
