The 20 times Premier League winners made a stunning late comeback with a sensational last minute goal from Allegandro Garnacho sealing all the three points for the Red half of Manchester in a 1-2 scoreline.
However, the Red Devils had all the opportunities to come out winners in the first half of the match with their scorer, Christian Eriksen, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial all missing out simple finishing chances to see off the game early enough.
Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag's decision to start Holland international, Tyrell Malacia at the right back slot despite being a left-footed player seems to have been the major stumbling block in the Red Devils' quest for three points at the Craven Cottage Stadium.
The €17million summer signing found it difficult to cope up with Brazillian superstar Willian as the former Arsenal and Chelsea winger proved to be a real magician on the Fulham's left wing throughout the match, and eventually giving Daniel James the advantage to chip in the equalizer just few minutes to his substitution.
