Manchester United were defeated by Fulham in the 26th round of the English Premier League (2/1). The match between the two teams at Old Trafford was officiated by referee Michael Oliver.

The visitors were the first to score through Nigerian Calvin Bassey in the 65th minute. The game then witnessed strong pressure from the Devils to score an equaliser, which came in the 89th minute through defender Harry Maguire. United were then stunned by a deadly goal from Nigerian Alex Iwobi in the 97th minute.

Manchester United’s defeat breaks their four-game winning streak in the Premier League. On the other hand, Fulham remained in twelfth place with 32 points.

The game saw Manchester United star Rasmus Højlund miss the match due to an injury, which he picked up in training this week. This affected the performance of the Devils’ attack in this match. The Danish star has scored in his last 6 games for United and led them to an important win in the last match against Luton Town.

In the next round, Manchester United have a tough match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, where they will be looking to get back to winning ways, especially since it is a derby match and a win will restore confidence for the team and the fans, while Fulham host Brighton at the Craven Cottage to emphasise the performance that the team gave at Old Trafford.
