3 talking points as Manchester United drop points against Fulham

Manchester United dropped points for the third consecutive league game, as the Red Devils were held to a draw by Fulham.

Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw in the final home game of the Premier League for the Red Devils after Fulham scored an equalizer in the second half. Edinson Cavani‘s incredible goal in the first half was cancelled out by a Joe Bryan header in the second half. The host have managed to claim just one point in their last three league matches, with losses coming against Leicester City and Liverpool.

United gained an early lead after Cavani chipped Fulham’s goalkeeper from long distance. They then held their lead comfortably in the first half, and it seemed that they would walk away with all three points.

Mason Greenwood had a splendid opportunity in the second half after he found himself one-on-one against the goalkeeper. However, Alphonse Areola was up to the task and pulled off a decent save to deny Greenwood. Joe Bryan headed home late in the second half to level the game and Fulham looked more threatening in the final stages of the match.

 CAVANI CONTINUES HIS RED HOT FORM FOR MANCHESTER UNITED

Edinson Cavani has been Manchester United’s standout performer in the last month and scored an incredible goal against Fulham on Tuesday. The former Paris Saint-Germain striker displayed sharp awareness, and he was quick to notice that Alphonse Areola was off his line, before lobbing the ball over the Frenchman. The 34-year old striker has six goals in his last six games for the club, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Cavani’s movement off the ball is quite commendable, as he is always looking to be a step ahead of the defenders. The Uruguayan has 16 goals and six assists to his name this season, which include 10 goals in the Premier League. In the absence of Anthony Martial, the veteran striker has stood up for his club, and delivered on a consistent basis.
