Manchester United vs Fulham LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Alex Iwobi scored deep in stoppage time as Fulham shocked sub-par Manchester United 2-1 in the Premier League on Saturday, the London side’s first win at Old Trafford since 2003.

United, who lost for the first time in six league matches, are sixth in the table on 44 points, eight behind fourth-placed Aston Villa. Fulham are 12th on 32 points.

Fulham struck first when Calvin Bassey scored in the 65th minute, firing his own rebound into the roof of the net. United defender Harry Maguire equalised in the 89th minute and the home team looked poised to salvage at least a point.

But Iwobi, who earlier squandered two good chances, swept a shot past Andre Onana into the bottom corner of the net in the 97th minute following a counter-attack to leave the home fans shell-shocked.

Ten Hag: Improving Forson deserves starting chance

14:44 , George Flood

Here is Erik ten Hag addressing his decision to hand young Omari Forson his first senior Manchester United start this afternoon…

Harrison Reed captains Fulham at Old Trafford

14:43 , George Flood

With usual skipper Tom Cairney and deputy Tim Ream both on the bench this afternoon, Harrison Reed takes the Fulham captain’s armband at Old Trafford.

Six Fulham changes as Willian misses out

14:31 , George Flood

A total of six changes from Marco Silva to the Fulham side that lost 2-1 to Aston Villa at Craven Cottage last weekend.

Tosin Adarabioyo, Calvin Bassey, Sasa Lukic, Harrison Reed, Alex Iwobi and Harry Wilson all come in

Tim Ream, Issa Diop, Tom Cairney and Bobby Decordova-Reid all drop to the bench, while Joao Palhinha is suspended and Willian absent through injury.

Two Man United changes as Forson and Lindelof come in

14:12 , George Flood

So as expected, Omari Forson is handed his first senior Manchester United start up front today in place of the injured Rasmus Hojlund.

The only other change from last weekend’s hard-fought 2-1 win at Luton is Victor Lindelof deputising for Luke Shaw at left-back.

Omari Forson starts for Manchester United

13:51 , George Flood

Rob Dawson of ESPN has reported in the last few moments that Omari Forson IS indeed starting for Manchester United for the first time at senior level this afternoon.

What a chance for the youngster…

Erik ten Hag hails Omari Forson progress

13:50 , George Flood

Here is what Erik ten Hag had to say about young Omari Forson potentially starting in place of Rasmus Hojlund today, hailing the talented teenager’s progress and insisting that Hojlund’s absence does not necessarily mean that Marcus Rashford now has to play through the middle.

“I see him in training with very good skills, Omari is doing well,” Ten Hag said.“We have options to fill in those positions. It’s not set Marcus Rashford has to play as a centre-forward.”

Marco Silva tells Armando Broja to ‘wait’ for Fulham chance

13:40 , George Flood

Marco Silva has called for Armando Broja to “wait for his chance” at Fulham ahead of today’s trip to Old Trafford.

The Albanian striker should be back on the visitors’ bench today after missing the 2-1 home defeat by Aston Villa last weekend through illness, having made just two goalless cameos in total since joining on loan from west London rivals Chelsea in January.

Even with Raul Jimenez currently sidelined and Carlos Vinicius gone, Broja has been unable to earn regular starts at Craven Cottage so far with Rodrigo Muniz having been in such a rich vein of scoring form of late.

“He has to wait for his chance,” Silva said of Broja this week.

“We really believe he is the right guy to be here. He arrived on deadline day before the Burnley game and he had 20 minutes on the pitch but Rodrigo scored and then the game after Rodrigo scored twice.

“Unfortunately for him, last week he was unwell and missed the match but now he is available and I will decide what the best solution will be to start the game.

“He’s working hard at a different club with a different style and he needs time to adapt and understand things. It takes time but we can see his quality.”



Omari Forson set to replace Rasmus Hojlund for Manchester United?

13:27 , George Flood

So it sounds like Antony may not be the man to come in for the injured Rasmus Hojlund today after all for Manchester United.

Standard Sport contributor Pete Hall reports that Erik ten Hag may instead hand 19-year-old academy graduate Omari Forson his first senior start up front.

Forson has been in fine form for the Under-21s so far this term and made his Premier League debut late off the bench in the seven-goal thriller at Wolves at the start of the month.

He also appeared with short substitute cameos in the recent FA Cup ties against both Wigan and Newport and has been in squads for the Champions League.

Ten Hag: ‘Naive’ to claim Manchester United should have signed another striker

13:18 , George Flood

Erik ten Hag also dismissed questions over why Manchester United spent so much on Mason Mount last summer rather than invest in another striker to support £72m arrival Rasmus Hojlund, especially given Anthony Martial’s questionable fitness record, reiterating concerns over Financial Fair Play rules.

“You are a football manager?” he said on Friday.

“If it was that easy… I already said (about) the money. First of all, striker options are the most difficult. Especially on our level. We had two strikers.

 (Manchester United via Getty Imag)

(Manchester United via Getty Imag)

“I get that for Martial, but he has done for us last season great things. He is also on high payment in this club. So when you bring another one in, you strike him out. So there are all arguments not to do it.

“Then there is Marcus Rashford, who can play very good from front position. So actually we had three strikers in our squad to fill in.

“Strikers are not cheap, and when you have three strikers in your squad and you bring a number four in, that means the prospective for the others will get short.

“We thought we had options, but when it develops during the season, I wanted to bring in a striker in the winter, but it was not possible. And already we had our problems with FFP (Financial Fair Play) in the summer of course.”

Ten Hag insists Hojlund injury won’t derail Manchester United season

13:02 , George Flood

With no Anthony Martial due to injury, you would anticipate that Rasmus Hojlund’s absence will mean that the oft-maligned Antony gets another chance in Manchester United’s attack today, alongside Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Friday, Erik ten Hag was eager to stress that Hojlund’s absence does not need to disrupt his side’s impressive winning run and push for the top four.

“(Hojlund) was lately very important,” he said. “But main man? I don’t see it that way. Because I think especially Garnacho is playing very strong in the last games…

“Rashy is capable. (He has only scored five but) he can score. Lately, in our last games the frontline is an absolute threat, they score.

“Is it Rasmus Hojlund only? No, it’s Garnacho, it’s also Rashford, it’s also Scott McTominay. Bruno (Fernandes) can score a goal.

“What gives me the confidence, in autumn the frontline wasn’t scoring, they were not even a threat. In this moment they are in very good form and a threat continually. I am quite confident that even when Rasmus Hojlund is not there, it will go on.

“We can line up a frontline which is really strong. I don’t think there is a frontline where the opponent thinks, ‘pfft, that is easy’. No, they will fear our frontline I am sure.”

Manchester United vs Fulham prediction

12:51 , George Flood

Manchester United are hitting top form at a good time as they eye a run at the top four, whereas Fulham have not won on their travels at all in 2024.

In fact, Marco Silva’s side have won just once on the road in the league all season.

Manchester United to win, 2-0.

Fulham team news

12:47 , George Flood

Fulham have their own major issue to contend with today, with star midfielder Joao Palhinha now serving a two-match ban after collecting his 10th yellow card of the season in last weekend’s home defeat by Aston Villa.

The Portuguese will miss today’s game and the home clash with Brighton on March 2.

Raul Jimenez is still sidelined, so the in-form Rodrigo Muniz should continue up front after scoring four goals in his last three appearances.

Kenny Tete is back from injury and Chelsea loanee Armando Broja has shaken off a bout of illness, though Willian faces a late fitness test after a knock.

Man United team news

12:40 , George Flood

Erik ten Hag was having another bad week on the injury front anyway after confirmation on Wednesday night that Luke Shaw would be out for a period of ‘months’ with a muscle issue sustained against Luton last weekend.

Initial reports suggested there were fears that the left-back could miss the rest of the season, with worrying potential implications for England and Gareth Southgate ahead of this summer’s European Championship.

Then came the news on Friday that in-form striker Rasmus Hojlund, who has scored eight goals in as many appearances after an early brace at Kenilworth Road last time out, had picked up his own muscle problem and would miss around two to three weeks – ruling him out of next week’s Manchester derby at the Etihad.

United are also still missing Lisandro Martinez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Mason Mount, Tyrell Malacia and Anthony Martial.
