Twitter erupts as Paul Pogba’s screamer helps Manchester United secure comeback win against Fulham
Paul Pogba has once again showed his class by helping Manchester United return to the top of the APL table.
Manchester United has returned to a dominant position in the APL table and they have managed to do so in a
more difficult way. Ole Gunnar Solskayer’s men once again came from behind to grab all three points against
Fulham at the Craven Cottage
Manchester United kept at their sluggish ways until Bruno Fernandes jolted back into life, a quarter of an hour
into the game. He hit the post and then followed it up with a cross from the left flank which was spilled
into Cavani‘s path by the Areola. The Uruguayan had no trouble sidefooting the ball home.
Fernandes would come close again and chances started dropping for United with increasing regularity in the lead
up to halftime.
The game had started to lose some steam in the opening minutes of the second half and it desperately needed a
moment of inspiration. Just when the deadlock looked too tough to be broken, Paul Pogba provided the much-needed spark for Manchester United with a peach of a strike with his left foot.
After receiving the ball on the right side of the pitch, he shifted past two Fulham players and then decided to go
for goal himself. He went for it with his weaker foot and curled it home past the despairing dive of Alphonse
Areola to give Manchester United the lead.
Cavani almost doubled United’s lead within the next minute but for Areola’s exceptional save from close range
of the Uruguayan’s header. Ruben Loftus-Cheek was Fulham’s standout performer on the night and he came
close twice as the Cottagers drove on in a bid to restore parity.
Eric Bailly almost deflected the ball into his own net in the dying embers of the game off a Mitrovic header
and it’d be fair to say that the Red Devils had to survive a few nervy moments at the end to secure all three
