Iwobi strikes late for Fulham at Old Trafford

2024/02/24 17:11

Alex Iwobi struck late as Fulham snatched all three points in a dramatic game at Old Trafford.

Manchester United were without in-form striker Rasmus Højlund with youngster Omari Forson making his first-ever start in the Red Devils' attack.

But it was Fulham who started the better of the two teams with Alex Iwobi having two efforts just go wide of André Onana's post.

Diogo Dalot almost had United ahead with what would have been a spectacular goal had his long-range goal not bounced off the wrong side of the post.

Fulham hit the woodwork too when Rodrigo Muniz had the strength to get past Victor Lindelöf but the Brazilian's effort bounced off the post.

The visitors eventually got their deserved lead in the 65th minute when a corner from the right was eventually thundered into the net by Calvin Bassey.

Despite being the better team, Marco Silva's side decided to drop deeper and deeper, allowing United to build pressure.

That pressure eventually told when Bruno Fernandes' effort could only be parried away by Bernd Leno with Harry Maguire the first on the scene to finish.

It looked like United were likely to hit a winner but they were caught on the counterattack late in stoppage time. Alex Iwobi had plenty of time and space to pick his corner and seal all three points for the Cottagers.

As a Manchester United fan, I am absolutely gutted about this result. Our young striker Omari Forson did well in his first start, but we just couldn't find the back of the net. Fulham played well and deserved the win, but we definitely had our chances. Disappointing to see us drop deeper and lose the game in the end.

As a Fulham fan, I couldn't be happier with our late victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford! Alex Iwobi's strike sealed the deal for us in a thrilling game. Our team showed great determination and skill, especially with Rodrigo Muniz's unlucky effort hitting the woodwork. We deserved this win and I'm proud to support my team.

As a passionate Fulham fan, I am absolutely ecstatic with our late victory over Manchester United! What a game it was, and I have to give credit to Alex Iwobi for his winning goal. We dominated the first half and deservedly took the lead, but the second half was nerve-wracking as we sat back and allowed United to build pressure. Thankfully, we held on and came out with all three points. Let's keep this optimism going for the rest of the season
