  • End of 2nd Half
90+5' 

FT: Fulham 1-2 Man Utd. United are back on top, with a battling win here. Valiant effort from Fulham who could easily have snatched a point. That is now seven games United have conceded first on the road, and seven times they have won. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye.

90+4' 

WIDE! My word! Header from Mitrovic comes of Bailly's thigh and rolls agonisingly wide. So close.

90+2' 

Long ball over the top finds Lookman, but Wan-Bissaka makes a fine block.

90' 

Four minutes of added time here.

89' 

United are hanging on here, but Fulham have one chance left in them...

87'

Double change for United as Martial and Greenwood are off, replaced by Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay.

85' 

CHANCE! Lookman skips away down the left and looks for Mitrovic at the back post. It then drops back to Loftus-Cheek about 15 yards out but he slices a horrible effort into the stands.

It is Fulham with the change, Mario Lemina on for Anguissa.

78' 

Fernandes wins a corner for United. Changes look to be afoot for United.

76' 

United still look a little ragged here. They could do with that third goal.

74'

SAVE! De Gea to the rescue for United as he saves well with his legs to deny Loftus-Cheek.

72' 

Can United hold on here? Fulham still have some life left in them.

- 

Worth the wait.

Ola Aina is into the book for a late challenge. Fulham look dejected.

- 

WOW

68'

SAVE! Brillaint movement from Cavani, but he cannot convert from close range as Areola makes a fine stop. That should have been game over!

66'

To even have the audacity to shoot from there is quite something, but what a strike with his left foot from Pogba, arrowing a beauty into the top corner.

GGGGGOOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!!! Fulham 1-2 Man Utd. What a goal from Pogba!

63' 

Fernandes clips a cross into the middle, but Martial is offside again. Great line from this Fulham backline.

61' 

Tremendous workrate from Cavani as he wins the ball back for his team. Runs around like an 18-year-old.

- 

It is.

59' 

That killer chance still eludes United here.

57' 

Fernandes really should convert a Pogba cross, but he is offside anyway.

55' 

Good pressure from United, with Shaw whipping a few dangerous crosses into the middle.

53'

CHANCE! Loftus-Cheek does well to pick out Lookman, who drills for goal, but De Gea gets down to save. Lookman's strike was too close to the Spaniard.

51' 

Maguire again gets his head to a corner, but again cannot find the target.

49' 

Pogba looks for the run of Martial, but it is cleared.

47' 

Harrison Reed has a go from distance, but that is always heading over.

  • 2nd Half
45'

KICK OFF! We are back under way here. No changes for either side.

- 

It does seem to be heading that way, but Fulham have not lost this season when taking the lead...

- 

United need cover at right back.

  • End of 1st Half
45+2' 

HT: Fulham 1-1 Man Utd. Typically slow start from United on the road, but they have dominated the latter part of the first half. Next goal wins?

45' 

Two minutes of added time here.

- 

Will he get another chance tonight?

44' 

OVER! Shaw whips a cross into the middle, but Martial heads over.

42' 

Greenwood will be disappointed with his contribution so far. Has offered very little.

40' 

Pace has slowed somewhat. Fulham need half time here to regroup.

38' 

Dreadful touch from Ivan Cavaleiro as he steals in behind Wan-Bissaka ruins a good chance.

36' 

Tete stays down after a challenge from Fernandes but looks fine to continue.

34' 

The curse of the commentator! Awful free-kick from Fernandes sails well over the top.

32' 

Fernandes seems to have been listening to the doubters this week. He has been everywhere so far.

30' 

Fulham back on the attack now. Good game this, with a high tempo.

- 

What a signing he has proven to be.

28' 

CHANCE! Maguire is unmarked from a corner, but cannot find the target. Should have done better.

26' 

United well on top now. They just needed that early jolt once again!

- 

It really was.

24'

SAVE! That man Fernandes again, who arrows another strike for the bottom corner, but Areola springs across to make a fine save.

GOAL! Fulham 1-1 Man Utd. Moments after Fernandes hits the post, Cavani pounces to level.

20' 

United are at least getting forward now, even if that final pass is not there yet.

18' 

Luke Shaw with a nice ball in, but there is nobody on the end of it.

16' 

Fulham are still reasonably comfortable. Not threat from United at all.

14' 

Pogba then gives the ball away sloppily in the middle. United have not got going here.

- 

Wan-Bissaka was the guilty party, playing Lookman on.

12'

Pogba seems to be holding his ankle, and looks to be in a bit of pain.

FUN ON THE ROAD: o Manchester United are the only side without an away defeat in the Premier League so far this season (W7 D2), while the Red Devils have picked up the most points (23) and scored the most goals (22) on the road in the competition this term. United are unbeaten in their last 16 Premier League away games. In their top-flight history, they’ve only once gone longer without defeat on the road – 17 games between December 1998-September 1999.

19:59 

So, it is advantage Manchester City! Their 2-0 win at Villa, which has just finished, sends them top of the table and extends their winning streak to nine!

19:57 

But not the best view.

19:52 

Goals have been a real problem for Fulham this season. Since their 2-1 win against Leicester in November, Fulham have scored three goals in seven Premier League matches (D5 L2), failing to score on four occasions in that run.

19:49 

Solskjaer explains his team selection this evening.

19:44 

HEAD TO HEAD: After winning consecutive league games against Man Utd in 2009, Fulham are winless in their last 11 against the Red Devils (D2 L9), shipping 29 goals in that run. Man Utd have won their last four away Premier League games against Fulham, by an aggregate score of 12-1. The Red Devils had won just four of their first 10 visits to the Cottagers in the competition (D4 L2).

19:36 

CAVANI STARTS, LOFTUS-CHEEK RETURNS: Edinson Cavani is back in the United starting XI as one of three changes from the team who drew at Anfield on Sunday. Mason Greenwood also comes into the attack, with Eric Bailly replacing Victor Lindelof at the back. There are two changes to the Fulham side from the XI beaten by Chelsea as Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Bryan replace Antonee Robinson and Bobby Decordova-Reid, who are both suspended.

Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Manchester United's trip to Fulham in the Premier League. Leicester's victory last night over Chelsea moved the Foxes above United at the top, but three points tonight will see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side climb back to the top of the pile. Fulham are without a win in their last seven, with goals hard to come by of late. They have held Liverpool to a draw already this season at Craven Cottage, however.
