Bruno Fernandes strike hands Manchester United first win in three matches

Erik ten Hag claims landmark win as Red Devils manager

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes provided a moment of brilliance to help the Red Devils claim a 1-0 win over Fulham and ease the growing pressure on manager Erik ten Hag.

Coming off the back of consecutive 3-0 defeats at Old Trafford against Manchester City and Newcastle United, Manchester United knew they needed a win to escape the growing heat.

Eight minutes into the encounter, the Red Devils thought they had gone ahead through a Scott McTominay effort, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside after a lengthy VAR check.

The remainder of the first half was largely uneventful as neither side posed a serious threat to the other.

The second half saw Fulham emerge from their shells more, with Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana called into action multiple times to thwart their attempts at an opener.

With the match in its dying minutes and looking destined to end in a goalless draw, Red Devils captain Bruno Fernandes provided a moment of magic.

In the first minute of added time, the Portuguese midfielder sold a dummy at the edge of the Fulham box before firing a low effort into the bottom corner via the hand of Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Manchester United held on to claim all three points, momentarily moving up to sixth in the standings. The win was Erik ten Hag’s 50th since joining the club, in only 78 matches as manager.
