Manchester United back to the top with stunning Pogba strike

Fulham vs Manchester United Things to look out for

Manchester United are taking on Fulham at Craven Cottage this evening in a game which could propel Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side back to the top of the Premier League.

The Cottagers took the lead after six minutes when Ademola Lookman turned the ball into the bottom corner.

Speaking ahead of the match, Ole Gunnar said the thought of the players getting suspended does not exactly concern him as a manager.

His second stint at United since signing from Juventus in 2016 for a then world-record £89m fee has been up-and-down but despite reports still linking him with a move away, the 27-year-old World Cup victor is now at the top of his game.

With Manchester City and Leicester City on United's tail, Solskjaer and his side know a win is certainly required. "He played very well".

But, in the 21st minute, United found the leveller just moments after Bruno Fernandes hit the inside of the post.

But in the 65th minute Pogba broke the deadlock, creating space before producing an unstoppable drive past a diving Areola.

Klopp insists Liverpool slump is no 'catastrophe' and says he is calm
The boys themselves know that goals are not flying in from right and left at the moment and you just have to work on it. It is not ideal but I saw a lot of good signs again in the Manchester United game. "That's completely normal.

Areola redeemed himself with a great save from Fernandes and Harry Maguire also headed wide as United took charge.

Fulham had the first chance of the second half, with Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro finding Harrison Reed, but his quick shot from distance was over the bar. In addition, a midfielder who gets into the area like him has scored just one goal and given one assist.

But Solskjaer is STILL refusing to say his side are in contention for the title, adding: "It is always going to be talked about that when you are halfway through and top of the league but we are not thinking about this". We did it the hard way and did it the handsome way. "It is my left foot so I tried to look and go for it, not think too much".

For Fulham, the loss keeps them in the relegation zone but Parker said he was pleased with some of the match's moments.

"So we need to be aware that it's going to be a tough game and that we have to be 100 per cent focused, in order to take care of all the details so we can try to win the game in order to remain in the league position that we now occupy", he added.

"Staying there is the challenge and that is the challenge we are looking forward to - focusing on every game and building this squad and hope that in the end we can lift the trophy".
