Fulham 0-3 Manchester United: Five Things We Learned

Adjust Comment Print

We dug out Ronaldo's goal for you to compare. "I consider him an important player for us - for now and for the future". It's what we wanted since Ole came.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were in top form as Manchester United continued their unbeaten run under Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer by securing a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham.

"At the moment I'm just concentrating on getting us up the table", said Solskjaer.

Just after the hour-mark, Pogba would score again, this time from the penalty spot after Juan Mata was fouled in the box by Maxime Le Marchand, a player who had a game to forget.

"A hard February but we have high hopes and I think we are in a good spell, especially in terms of confidence".

"It's tough being away from my family, of course, but it's a challenge every single day here because we play Fulham now, we need three points to get into the top four, then it's PSG, then Chelsea - it's just challenge after challenge. There were some good performances today, I have to say".

"Let's hope we can stay there and go higher".

The crowd, unimpressed at the Schuerrle substitution and the very late introduction of promotion heroes Ryan Sessegnon and Tom Cairney, booed Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri off at the end of the match.

"We started very well", he said.

"We are in a risky situation [in the league] and I told my players that it's important to show to our fans we are alive and try to do our best until the end". "Four minutes before full-time we were 2-0 down". But these big games coming up will determine where we end up.

Paul Pogba has already been involved in a record number of goals and Rashford has been in prolific form too.

"The most pleasing thing was in the second half, the way we controlled it".

Fulham fans made their feelings clear as they booed Schurrle when he was replaced by Cyrus Christie on 53 minutes and applauded the decision to take off Ryan Babel on 77 minutes after the Netherlands global had hit the post from point blank range. "When you play against champions you have to stay calm and not lose your composure - that is the real problem".
