Fulham’s Calum Chambers stamped on Man United’s Chris Smalling

Fulham 0 – Manchester United 3

It was another disastrous day at the office for Fulham against Man United on Saturday.

Fulham opened the game brightly and the Cottagers had a couple of opportunities to score first.

But a mixture of naive and just terrible defending handed United the ascendancy soon after.

Paul Pogba struck first with a super shot past Sergio Rico into the Fulham near post.

Anthony Martial then left a couple of Fulham players for dead as he ran almost half the pitch to score a memorable solo effort.

Pogba capped the Man United win with a second half penalty.

One incident has been flagged up by some Man United fans following the Fulham win.

Should the hosts have been reduced to 10-men?

Playing in a midfield role, Calum Chambers stamped on Chris Smalling in the 38th minute.

Smalling slid in to clear a Fulham attack, while Chambers was trying to win possession on the edge of the United box.

Chambers was late, and he ended up stamping on Smalling’s leg near his knee.

The Fulham midfielder was booked by referee Paul Tierney. But should he have been sent off?

During the live commentary on Sky Sports, Gary Neville remarked:

It wasn’t great from Calum Chambers. He definitely could have stopped. He chose not to, he knew exactly what he was doing.
