Pogba shot Man United again in first place 

Pogba shot Man United again in first place


After a week ago Paul Pogba scored the only goal in the match with Burnley and thus Manchester United climbed to the top of the Premier League, now the Frenchman again scored the winning goal for his team away to Fulham. The Red Devils once again had to reverse the result in their visit this season, after Ademola Luukman opened in the fifth minute. Edinson Cavani equalized in the 21st, and Paul Pogba brought the victory with 2:1 to the guests in the 65th. Thus, United overtook its city rival Manchester City, which only two hours before came out in the first place for a while. The `Red Devils` are two points ahead of the `citizens`, but they also have a game more.

Home manager Scott Parker has made two forced changes to his squad. Anthony Robinson and Bobby Reed missed the match due to penalties. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Brian started in their place. There were three adjustments made by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the derby with Liverpool. Eric Bayi replaced Victor Lindelof at the center of the defense. Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood were also starters at the expense of Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominey. The Cottages started very strongly and in the fifth minute they came out ahead in the result. Angisa made a very good pass to pass Bayi and find Luukman. He was on the verge of an ambush, jumped out from behind the defense, took the lead and after hitting the ground in the far corner found the result. The hit passed the VAR check, and the graphs showed that Wan-Bisaka was covering the ambush. Thus, the hit was counted.

In the 10th minute Manchester United could have received a penalty after Loftus-Cheek put Fred`s legs in his back. Martin Atkinson showed that he saw the situation, and the VAR did not intervene. This incident started a counter for the hosts, which Pogba interrupted with a foul, for which he received a yellow card.

However, the guests played better and better. In the 21st minute, a shot by Bruno Fernandes from the edge of the penalty area hit the crossbar. Then Fulham`s defense failed to clear, Fernandes centered from the left, and Areola intervened badly and killed the ball in the way of Cavani, who sent it from a few meters into the empty net. Two minutes later, Areola partially redeemed his guilt for the goal after saving a very dangerous shot by Fernandes from 22 meters. The guests continued to dominate until the break, but no new goal was scored.

Fulham tried to start the second half well and quickly gained a few accurate shots. In the 57th minute Areola scored a header from close to Fernandes. Subsequently, the liner raised his flag for an ambush, so that even if the Portuguese had scored, the goal would probably not have been counted. United started to put pressure on their opponent and this led to a complete turnaround in the 65th minute, when Paul Pogba shot superbly from the edge of the penalty area. Areola was not perfectly placed and failed to reach the ball - 1:2.

Three minutes later, Areola saved Fulham from a third goal after hitting Cavani with a header. 1/4 hour before the end Ruben Loftus-Cheek missed a golden opportunity to equalize after receiving a great pass and shooting on the ground, but De Gea
