Man United vs Fulham final score, result, highlights as Iwobi injury time strike stuns Old Trafford

MANCHESTER, OLD TRAFFORD — Alex Iwobi’s 97th-minute winner ruined Manchester United’s unbeaten start to 2024 as Fulham came away from Old Trafford with three points.


It’s the second time in the Premier League era that Marco Silva’s men have beaten United on their own patch. Their most recent league win at Old Trafford came more than two decades ago in 2003. It was also only the Cottagers’ second away league win of the season.


Erik ten Hag’s side thought they’d salvaged a point when Harry Maguire smashed home the equaliser in the 89th minute. Bernd Leno parried Bruno Fernandes’ long-range effort into the path of the centre-back who made no mistake.


Calvin Bassey initially gave Fulham the lead as he found the roof of the net from a corner. His teammate, Timothy Castagne, blocked his first effort, but the ball fell kindly for the Nigeria international to thump past Andre Onana.


It was United’s first match since injuries to Luke Shaw and Rasmus Hojlund, two key players, and it showed. Aston Villa’s win over Nottingham Forest sees Ten Hag’s men eight points off the Champions League qualification places.

Man United vs. Fulham analysis

Forson’s feelgood debut fall flat

Ahead of kickoff, the hype surrounded Omari Forson. The teenager received the loudest cheers on his full debut as the starting lineups were announced and he replaced the injured Hojlund. United had three 2022 FA Youth Cup winners in the starting lineup: Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho and Forson.


Forson started ahead of Antony, the birthday boy left on the bench. Ten Hag’s most expensive signing was embarrassingly brought on in the 99th minute and was essentially third-string behind Forson and Amad Diallo, who came on ahead of the £86 million man.


United’s best run of form of this season came to a shuddering halt after a wretched display and their impressive work could all be undone in March. Without the likes of Shaw, Hojlund and Lisandro Martinez it’s difficult to see who can step up to the challenge and be the difference-maker in a squad that lacks leadership.


They travel to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday ahead of their monstrous cross-town clash against Manchester City.

With Hojlund expected to miss the derby through injury, is there anyone who could step up for United in the goalscoring department?


The Danish forward’s presence up front was greatly missed against Fulham and it took United nearly half an hour to register their first shot of the match. The second half saw more of the same as Ten Hag’s men mustered their effort in the 70th minute when Mainoo volleyed from Fernandes’ corner and it went out for a throw-in.


As the Dutchman prepares his side to face title-chasing City, it appears their goal-scoring options will be severely limited.


From open play, Marcus Rashford and Antony are the only available players in the current United squad who have previously scored at the Etihad Stadium.


This may not be a sentence many expected to read in 2024 but the absence of Anthony Martial will be felt by United. The Frenchman is recovering from groin surgery and may not feature for the club again as his contract is up at the end of the season.


His forgettable brace in last year’s damaging 6-3 defeat was his fourth goal at the Etihad in his career. Meanwhile, Antony, who also found the net that day, appears to have fallen out of favour with his old Ajax boss.

Prior to that, Jadon Sancho scored United’s only goal in another heavy defeat back in 2022 under Ralf Rangnick. He’s now on loan at Borussia Dortmund and Luke Shaw is out injured for up to 12 weeks. The England left-back was on the scoresheet when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were victorious in 2021.


Rashford, despite scoring on his first jaunt to east Manchester, hasn’t scored there since United’s 2-1 win in December 2019.


Recent history hints that another hefty defeat for United could be looming.
