Four Untold Gists From Fulham’s Defeat Of Manchester United – Lifestyle Nigeria

A 97th-minute winner by Super Eagles International Alex Iwobi capped a historic 2-1 for Fulham over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United had been in superb form in 2024, remaining unbeaten and winning their last five matches, while Rasmus Hojlund had scored seven goals in his last six games.

But the striker was ruled out through injury in midweek and United were toothless in his absence, with Omari Forson – handed a first senior start after being preferred to £86m signing Antony – struggling to fill the void.

Fulham wasted numerous openings and the only surprise was that it took them until the 65th minute to open the scoring, with Nigerian defender Calvin Bassey lashing the ball into the roof of the net after United failed to deal with a set-piece.

The hosts belatedly mustered a response and levelled when Harry Maguire tapped in from close range after Bernd Leno spilled a shot in his direction. That goal swung the momentum in United’s favour but Fulham hit their hosts with a sucker punch, Alex Iwobi fresh from his return from the Africa Cup of Nations finishing a 97th-minute counter-attack to leave Ten Hag’s team eight points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.

Here are four important stats from the game as Fulham beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford;

• Fulham have now won a game at Old Trafford for the first time in 21 years as they earned their first ever Premier League victory over Man United.

  • Alex Iwobi’s winner for Fulham at 96:04 is the second latest winning goal ever scored against Manchester United in the Premier League, and the latest goal on record (since 2006-07) scored by the visiting team at Old Trafford in the competition.
