First half: settling the score

Trying to secure third place, Manchester United started the game very aggressively. Diogo Dalot’s cross, assisted by Bruno Fernandes, forced Bernd Leno to make an early save. However, Fulham quickly found their footing, and Aleksandar Mitrović missed a clear opportunity to put his side ahead. Moments later, Leno saved a powerful free kick taken by Marcus Rashford.

In the 19th minute, United suffered a setback when Kenny Tete scored from a Willian corner, giving Fulham the lead. The London club was then awarded a penalty after Casemiro was deemed to have fouled Sam Cairney in the penalty area. However, David De Gea made a brilliant save to deny Mitrović the penalty. Encouraged by the saves, United pushed forward in search of an equaliser. Just before half-time, Jadon Sancho found the back of the net after Fred’s fall in the box resulted in an accidental deflection.

Second half: Fernandez secures the win

With momentum on their side, Manchester United went out in the second half determined to take the lead. Marcus Rashford went close with a half-volley that narrowly missed the goal. The home fans at Old Trafford didn’t have to wait long for the winning goal, as Fred played a superb reverse pass to set up Bruno Fernandes, who calmly volleyed the ball past Leno.

Although United dominated the game, Fulham had two chances to equalise, with Sam Cairney being denied by a Scott McTominay interception and later sending a shot over the crossbar. In injury time substitute Wout Weghorst had the chance to seal the win, but his effort went too far.

With this win, Manchester United concluded their 2022/23 campaign, turning their attention to the upcoming Emirates Cup final against local rivals City.
