Significant points as Manchester United overcomes Fulham in FA Cup contest
Manchester United advanced to the FA Cup as they got the better of Fulham 3-1 at Old Trafford.
The match began on a fine note but it ended up in a dramatic fashion as the visitors finished the game with 9 men.
However, with the defeat of Marco Silva’s men at Old Trafford, we review the major talking points from the game.
Alexander Mitrovic is World Class
The Serbian striker has been banging in goals all season for his Fulham side. He’s one of the stand-out players in the Premier League this season.
And as a Fulham player, you could see the level of quality he brings to the group. Just as he opened the scoring against Manchester United in the match.
Magnificent Bruno Fernandes
The Portuguese talisman was exceptional on the occasion. He converted the penalty under intense pressure to make it 1-1. While he finished with aplomb United’s third goal and his brace. Fernandes was really outstanding for the Red Devils.
Here, he received the ball from Fred who bumped forward in midfield to deliver the pass for the goal.
Bruno with the first touch for the control before blasting into the net to send the home fans into celebration.
What a goal it was, as it could be the moment that defines Manchester United’s season as a whole.
The red-Card incident
Fulham was trailing 0-1 away at Old Trafford when Willian Borges blocked the ball on the line with his hands to attract a resulting penalty.
Bruno Fernandes converted the spot kick to equalize for the Red Devils. But giving Mitrovic a red card for his agitation was somehow too harsh a decision from the centre referee.
Fulham already had a man with William shown the red card as well as the Penalty already against them. And sending striker Alexander Mitrovic off may have been too heavy a punishment as it destabilized the entire Fulham side.
Maybe a yellow card may have just been enough for the Serbian on that occasion.
