Premier League: Finally United have a convincing win beating Fulham 4-1 at hom on Saturday. A good start saw United 3-0 up at half time against a poor Fulham side. Young, Mata and Lukaku scoring brfore fulham got a lifeline from the penalty spot before Rashford added the fourth. Table-toppers Liverpool will be a more difficult test on Sunday at Anfield.
Champions League: With qualification assured into the last 16 Jose made household changes for the trip to Valencia and I'm sure with one eye on Liverpool on Sunday. A side including many with very little game time this season were way off the pace in the first half. A poor defensive header by Jones led to the first goal before he slid the ball home from outside the box to give Valencia a 2-0 lead. Things did inprove after the introduction of the subs and with a number of shots on target before some excellent play which was finished by Rashford. That was the final act and United lost 2-1. It was even a bigger disappointment when the final results came in and Juventus had been beaten awy at Young Boys, meaning a victory for United would have seen them top the group. United go into Monday's draw with the prospect of facing stiff opposition in the last 16.
