Fulham secure huge away win with added-time goal in Man Utd 1-2 clash, as Alex Iwobi scores

By Majesty 2 Min Read

Alex Iwobi’s goal in injury time earned Fulham its only Old Trafford victory since 1963, giving Manchester United a sobering wake-up call.

United’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were severely damaged four days after new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe declared that the team would try to unseat Manchester City and Liverpool from their dominant positions in the English game.

The hosts were unable to mount an offensive until the very last minute of normal time, when Harry Maguire appeared to have salvaged a point for the team despite the absence of injured attacker Rasmus Hojlund.

However, Iwobi had the last word nine minutes into stoppage time, regaining the lead that had been first given to them by Nigerian defender Calvin Bassey, who scored the loose ball after teammate Timothy Castagne had blocked his header from a Fulham corner.

The outcome put a stop to the west London team’s record of eleven Premier League away games without a victory. Only Sheffield United had a worse away record in the top tier this season going into this match.

Nobody will be convinced that United will meet Ratcliffe’s ambitious goals anytime soon by the loss or, more significantly, the performance.
