Manchester United vs Fulham Premier League Match Result February 2024

In a surprising turn of events, Fulham secured a 2-1 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday. Alex Iwobi's deep stoppage-time goal marked Fulham's first win at Old Trafford since 2003 and only their second since 1963. 

Despite the loss, United remains sixth in the Premier League table with 44 points, eight behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, while Fulham holds the 12th position with 32 points.

Iwobi, expressing his joy, stated, "I'm over the moon right now to come back into the team and get the win here -- there is no better feeling." He emphasized the team's recent strong performances and the importance of translating them into results.

Calvin Bassey opened the scoring for Fulham in the 65th minute, securing his first goal for the Cottagers. United's Harry Maguire equalized in the 89th minute, setting the stage for a dramatic finish. However, Iwobi's late goal in the 97th minute sealed Fulham's historic victory.

Fulham manager Marco Silva praised his team's performance, stating, "A great feeling for our fans, who were loud from the first to the last whistle. The players deserved it, clearly the best team won the game." Silva celebrated with the fans after the match, highlighting the significance of defeating a side in good form.

United, missing injured striker Rasmus Højlund, faced challenges in finding solutions after the setback. Maguire acknowledged their naivety in throwing too many bodies forward and getting caught on the counterattack. 

Fulham's triumph marked their first away win in 12 Premier League games, while United has suffered 10 league losses this season, surpassing their total from the entire 2022-23 campaign.
