Fulham were handed a 3-0 defeat by Manchester United at Craven Cottage for the lunchtime kick off in the Premier League.

Fulham were handed a 3-0 defeat by Manchester United at Craven Cottage for the lunchtime kick off in the Premier League. 

 

Paul Pogba took advantage of a clever pass from Anthony Martial to claim the first before Martial himself nabbed the second in the first half. 

 

It was Pogba who claimed his second and United’s third of the afternoon from the penalty spot after Maxime Le Marchand was judged to have fouled Juan Mata in the Fulham box with just over an hour gone. 

 

Claudio Ranieri made two changes to the side that faced Crystal Palace with Cyrus Christie and Tom Cairney making way for Luciano Vietto and André Schürrle. 

 

Manchester United decided to make six changes to their team that defeated Leicester City 1-0 the previous weekend with the headline being match winner Marcus Rashford dropping to the bench for Romelu Lukaku.

 

Fulham engineered the first chance of the game with only seconds on the clock as the Whites countered and Schürrle’s cross found Vietto at the back post but the forward struck his effort wide. 

 

The Whites looked to capitalise on their early dominance again three minutes later as Aleksandar Mitrović had his header blocked before Schürrle fired the rebound against a United defender for a corner. 

 

After giving the ball away in his own half, Le Marchand got back and with the help of Jean Michaël Seri, dispossessed Pogba before he could get a shot off in the eighth minute. 

 

Pogba opened the scoring in the 14thminute after he latched onto Martial’s clever pass and beat Sergio Rico at his near post. 

 

Martial doubled the lead himself with 23 minutes on the clock as he went on a mazy run from his own half into the Fulham box to stick it past Rico.

 

Joe Bryan was booked for a lunge on Chris Smalling deep in the United half in the 25thminute. 

 

It was another Fulham booking 12 minutes later when Calum Chambers mistimed his challenge on Smalling on the edge of the United box. 

 

Phil Jones had his shot on the edge of the Fulham box tipped behind for a corner as the visitors began to assert their control on the game in the 40thminute. 

 

Nemanja Matic got himself booked before Chambers’ volley caused some trouble for David de Gea but the Spaniard got down to deny him in the 43rdminute. 

 

Fulham pushed for an equaliser before the break but were unable to break down the red wall that smothered the visitors box. 

 

With 53 minutes gone, Ranieri switched his tactics by bringing on Christie for Schürrle and reverting to a five at the back formation. 

 

With just over an hour of football played Rico was forced into a solid save as Ander Herrera powered his shot straight at the Fulham ‘keeper and he got his weight behind it to keep it out.

 

A soft penalty was awarded as Le Marchand bumped Mata off the ball and Pogba bagged his second of the afternoon from the penalty spot on 65 minutes. 

 

The Red Devils brought on Alexis Sanchez for Martial with 20 minutes left to play. 

 

Mitrović forced a good save from de Gea in the 72ndminute after the Serbian got his head on the end of Christie’s cross, the visitors then brought on Scott McTominay for Pogba. 

 

The Whites then somehow found a way not to score when Phil Jones almost poked it in his own net before the ball fell to Ryan Babel who reacted quickly but could only hit the post. 

 

That was Babel’s last interaction in the game as he was immediately replaced by Cairney in the 77thminute.  

 

As the heavens opened on Craven Cottage the Whites brought on Ryan Sessegnon for Bryan with ten minutes left to go. 

 

The weather dramatically improved as the visitors used their third and final substitution to bring on Eric Bailly for Herrera to see out the game. 

 

With seconds remaining in the final minute of regular time, Mitrović and de Gea both got booked for a tussle off the ball as the game petered out.
