Due to the slow performance, the Red Devils beat Fulham 1-0 in extra time.
Manchester United found the error in stoppage time against Fulham (1-0), on Saturday in London, thanks to a blocked goal by its captain Bruno Fernandes, which partially erases another bad performance in the match.
The Portuguese leader allows the Red Devils, in a delicate situation, to temporarily advance to sixth place with 18 points, one point behind Newcastle and Brighton, while he awaits the other matches of the 11th day of the English championship.
Fernandes controlled a ball that Fulham could not clear, and put it in the wind with a hook before his shot, which collided slightly, ended up in the net (90+1), in front of the visiting team’s fans. Unleash at Craven Cottage.
Manchester United, without the injured Casemiro or Marcus Rashford, were thought to have taken the lead early in the game with Scott McTominay (eighth), but the Scot’s goal was disallowed after a lengthy use of video highlighted Harry Maguire’s offside.
His goalkeeper Andre Onana avoided further disappointment with a brilliant one-handed save on a sudden, violent shot, then made another two-handed save a few seconds later (61st).
