Premier League: Man Utd vs Fulham ends in stalemate- Manchester United vs Fulham fixture ended in a 1-1 draw after a brilliant display from Fulham at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Edinson Cavani (15′) provided the early lead to the red devils in the first half but Joe Byran’s 76th-minute equaliser snatched victory from the hands of Ole Gunnar Sokasjaer’s men at their home stadium.
Second-placed Manchester United faced off Fulham who are in the relegation zone in the Premier League table. The red devils were the favourites to win the match as they look to ensure they do not lag behind FA Cup winners Leicester City. The 20-time English champions are five points clear of the Foxes.
Cavani scored a goal-of-the-season contender, brilliantly lofting the ball over Alphonse Areola from 40 yards for his ninth goal in 10 appearances, despite controversy over a potential offside.
