Manchester United ended their four-game winless run in the Premier League, when they defeated bottom dwellers Fulham 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Ashley Young gave the Red Devils an early lead with a sensational strike from a tight angle inside the box in the 13th minute, before Juan Mata doubled Manchester United’s lead fifteen minutes later, with a composed finish. Close to half-time, the home team were up by three goals, as Romelu Lukaku ended his Old Trafford goal drought with a simple tap in.

Manchester United continued to pose problems for Claudio Ranieri’s men after the break, but against the run of play, the Cottagers pulled a goal back, as substitute Aboubakar Kamara converted from the penalty spot in the 67th minute.

With less than ten minutes left on the clock, Marcus Rashford unleashed a terrific strike from the edge of the box to add more gloss to the scoreline.

It was a fine display from Jose Mourinho’s side, who have been drawing a lot of flak for dour performances in recent matches. And the fans took to social media to cherish the performance from their team on the day;

Diogo Dalot put in a brilliant performance at right-back in just his second start in the Premier League. And the United supporters couldn’t stop gushing over the Portuguese starlet’s display against the Cottagers.

 

Spanish playmaker Juan Mata too drew a lot of praises from the supporters for his display which was capped with a goal and an assist.
