Manchester United are now back to their winning ways in the Premier League. They won 1-0 over Fulham at Craven Cottage this afternoon.
In all fairness, the Red Devils actually struggled against the Cottagers. Scott McTominay scored in the first-half, but was later disallowed as offside.
However, Bruno Fernandes rescued Manchester United during injury time. He scored the only goal against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Portuguese midfielder is enamored with rescuing the Red Devils. As a result, he helped Erik ten Hag’s side this afternoon in the Premier League.
With that being said, Manchester United are back to their winning ways. And they are currently in 16th place in the table with 18 points.
1. Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)
The Portuguese Magnifico single-handedly won the game against Fulham this afternoon. He scored the only goal for the Red Devils.
Bruno Fernandes actually struggled against Fulham in the midfield. However, he put his creativity into action, creating chances and making key passes.
The Red Devils captain finished the game with 8.2 ratings. Obviously, he was one of the best players in the Premier League match.
Defensively, Fernandes made 3 tackles against the Cottagers. In all fairness, he was responsible for Manchester United’s victory over Fulham.
2. Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Manchester United)
Despite the poor overall display from the Red Devils at Craven Cottage. The English right-back was a pillar for Manchester United at the defense line.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka was defensively balanced against the Cottagers. He frustrated Willian throughout his time on the pitch, trying to shield the defensive line.
The Red Devils RB had 100% ground duels against Fulham. In all fairness, he was the best defender on the pitch for Manchester United in the game.
Willian was on fire for the Cottagers. However, Aaron Wan-Bissaka managed to silence him, having had some tackles, interceptions, and clearances.
1. Antony (Manchester United)
The Brazilian attacker continues his poor performance for Manchester United. He was literally off the game against the Cottagers.
Antony hasn’t been performing impressively since the beginning of the season. However, the Dutch gaffer believes so much in him.
As an attacker, the Red Devils No.21 didn’t add anything to the team’s offensive display. No key passes, no successful dribbles, and just 79% pass accuracy.
In all fairness, Erik ten Hag’s men were poor against Fulham in the game. However, Antony didn’t add anything to the team’s performance.
2. Christian Eriksen (Manchester United)
The Danish midfielder failed to put his creativity on display against the Cottagers. His combination with Bruno Fernandes wasn’t good enough.
Christian Eriksen played as No.8, moving back and forth to support Scott and Bruno. However, he was actually nowhere to be found in the midfield.
Speaking of his stats offensively, the Danishman had just one shot throughout his 80 minutes on the pitch. As a result, the Red Devils were shallow in the middle.
Meanwhile, the Cottagers were balanced and composed in the midfield. They literally outplayed Manchester United throughout the game in the midfield.
