Fulham vs Manchester United
Manchester United travelled to Fulham for the first Premier League game of the weekend.
United began the weekend in 5th place, two points off a Champions League spot.
With Chelsea not playing till Sunday, United would move up to 4th with a win over Fulham.
United were also looking to make it 11 games unbeaten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Fulham, on the other hand, started the day 19th in the league with no chance of moving out of the relegation zone.
Pogba & Martial steal the show
Fulham started Saturday’s game quite brightly but Paul Pogba would fire United into the lead in the 14th minute with an excellent near-post finish.
A fine, fine strike from the Frenchman!

Anthony Martial would earn the assist for Pogba’s goal.
The Frenchman would then get himself on the score sheet with a superb solo goal.
MARTIAL MAKES IT TWO!
Individual brilliance from the forward.
