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.
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.
