Fulham let a 2-0 lead slip to draw at Manchester United on Monday night.

Fulham’s Under-21s let a 2-0 lead slip to draw 2-2 away at Manchester United on Monday night.

With United legend David Beckham watching on from the stands, the hosts, who fielded Darren Fletcher, almost fell behind when Buomesca Tue Na Bangna saw a shot crash back off the crossbar.

But the Whites did go in front in the 35th minute when Tom Thorpe missed an interception and Moussa Dembele raced onto Lasse Vigen Christensen’s throughball to score with a confident finish.

Kit Symons’ side increased their lead 10 minutes after the restart when Sean Kavanagh’s corner was flicked on by Christensen for Muamer Tankovic to turn home.

United, though, hit back almost immediately, making it 2-0 on 58 minutes when a Will Keane shot was saved by Jesse Joronen but rebounded off the unlucky Stephen Arthurworrey and in.

Tom Lawrence missed a good chance to level the scores, dragging a shot wide, before Dembele forced Sam Johnstone into a save with a long-range effort.

With time running out, United snatched a late point and it came out of the blue when centre-back Michael Keane sent a powerful shot from the edge of the box past a helpless Joronen.

Fulham: Joronen, Passley, Arthurworry, Buatu, Kavanagh, Na Bangna (Plumain 61), Vigen Christensen, Minkwitz, Richards (Islamovic 86), Tankovic (Della Verde 75), Dembele. Subs (not used): Brennan, O'Reilly.
