    Can Fulham snatch a consolation goal in the last three minutes?

  • 83'

    SUBSTITUTION: Fulham now take Bryan off and he has been replaced by Sessegnon.

  • 79'

    MISS! Babel fails to take a golden opportunity after a good header from Mitrovic, as it just eludes him on the left. Close!

    FULHAM 0 - 3 MANCHESTER UNITED.

  • 65'

    GOAL, MANCHESTER UNITED, POGBA! The keeper picks the right corner, but POGBA still finds a way past him.

  • 64'

    PENALTY, MANCHESTER UNITED! Le Marchand is guilty of taking Lukaku down in the box. Clumsy!

    Herrera challenges Babel from behind and is lucky to get away with no booking.

  • 60'

    It is going far too easy for United now and Fulham need to watch out.

    We will have two minutes of time added on for stoppages.

    HALF-TIME: FULHAM 0-2 MANCHESTER UNITED. United go into the break with a deserved two goal lead. Fulham started well, but have failed to convert their early opportunities. Please join us in a bit.

  • 44'

    YELLOW! Matic is booked for a silly challenge on Babel. That is one foul too many from him.

  • 43'

    The Fulham defence is struggling now with this continuous onslaught by Manchester United.

  • 41'

    Martial makes good ground on the left again, but his cross into the penalty area for Romelu Lukaku is deflected for a corner. After some chaos in the penalty area Rico tips it over the cross-bar! That was a good save from the keeper after that Phil Jones

  • 39'

    YELLOW! Chambers is now in the book for a foul on Smalling.

  • 37'

    It is clear that United are in search of a third goal before half-time. They may just get there.

    Fulham secure a rare free-kick and it finds Seri, who wins a corner after a deflection following a shot at goal. The corner is easily cleared and United counter-attack.

  • 30'

    Fulham have looked good in patches in the first half an hour. Herrera has dropped back a bit for United and is now playing deeper.

  • 27'

    YELLOW! Bryan is booked after a harsh challenge on Mata. The referee has been lenient thus far.

  • 25'

    FULHAM 0-2 MANCHESTER UNITED. What an individual piece of brilliance by Martial. He receives the ball in his own half and makes his way into the Fulham penalty area to beat the keeper. Poor defending from Le Marchand I may add.

    GOAL, MANCHESTER UNITED, MARTIAL!

  • 22'

    Romelu Lukaku has been very quiet for Manchester United thus far.

  • 17'

    We have another stoppage in play due to an injury. This time a Fulham player is down.

  • 15'

    FULHAM 0-1 MANCHESTER UNITED. Martial does well to make gound on the left and finds Pogba at an angle. The rest is history and Pogba slides it past Sergio Rico, who did not guard his near post. What a goal from a tight angle! Was Pogba offside?

  • 14'

    We have a stoppage in play and Matic is down after a challenge by Schurrle.

  • 14'

    GOAL, MANCHESTER UNITED, POGBA!

  • 12'

    It has been a good positive start by Fulham, but they have nothing to show for it at this stage.

  • 10'

    Pogba finds Martial on the left, but his fellow Frenchman runs out of space and Fulham have a throw-in.

  • 8'

    Le Marchand is outclassed by Pogba, but somehow the latter is crowded by Fulham and they manage to clear.

  • 6'

    BLOCK! What a start by Fulham, but again they fail to convert after a tussle between Smalling and Mitrovic, who just cannot get his header in after a clearance near the line.

  • 4'

    Babel break for Fulham on the right after that set-piece is cleared. He finds Schurrle, who in turn pass to Vietto, who fails to connect properly and United survive.

  • 3'

    Early danger for Fulham. Dalot is fouled by Bryan and Mata just cannot get the set-piece to Pogba.
