Manchester United came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 in their final Premier League game of the season. Fulham took the lead in the 19th minute, but missed an opportunity to double their advantage when David de Gea saved Aleksandar Mitrovic’s penalty. United equalised in the 39th minute through Jadon Sancho and took the lead in the 55th minute with a goal from Bruno Fernandes. The result did not affect the Premier League table, with United finishing third and Fulham in 10th place. United will now focus on the FA Cup final against Manchester City next week.

On May 28, 2023, Manchester United ended their Premier League campaign on a high note with a 2-1 home win over Fulham. Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes scored the goals that secured the victory for the Red Devils, who came from behind after Kenny Tete’s header gave Fulham the lead in the 19th minute.

Despite the setback, United kept their composure and were rewarded in the 39th minute when Sancho scored a simple close-range shot to equalize. The momentum shifted in their favor, and Fred’s defense-splitting pass set up Fernandes to score the winner with a delicate chip in the 55th minute.

The win did not change the Premier League table, as Erik ten Hag’s side finished the season in third place, while Fulham ended in 10th for their first top-half finish since 2012. However, the victory was a morale booster for United ahead of their upcoming FA Cup final against rivals Manchester City.

Ten Hag’s third-place United will be looking to win a second trophy of the season, adding to their Carabao Cup success in February. The Dutchman thanked the fans at Old Trafford for their support and urged them to get behind the team in the final.

“There is still one game to go, and I am sure that these players will give everything to beat Manchester City next week. So we need it from you as well,” Ten Hag told the supporters.

Fulham manager Marco Silva was disappointed with the result, saying his side did not deserve to lose the game, which hinged on the penalty save by David de Gea in the 26th minute.

“The game changed completely from that moment,” Silva told the BBC. “We should have reacted in a different way. It was a moment for us to show maturity and handle the game in a different way, but we haven’t done that.”

Fulham’s Tom Cairney came close to leveling the game in the 76th minute but blazed his attempt over the crossbar, while an unmarked Wout Weghorst missed a gilt-edged opportunity to end his loan spell in Manchester with a goal.

The win was a fitting end to United’s Premier League campaign, which saw them finish third behind champions Liverpool and runners-up Manchester City. Despite missing out on the title, United showed progress under Ten Hag, who took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer midway through the season.

United fans will be hoping that the team can build on their success next season and mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title. For now, they can savor the moment and look forward to the FA Cup final, where they will have a chance to claim bragging rights over their local rivals.
