Premier League: United returned to the top of the league with a 2-1 win away to Fulham on Wednesday. A defensive lapse saw Lookman burst forward into United's box and score to give Fulham the lead in the 5th minute. United responded well and shortly after Fernandes had hit the post the Fulham keeper spilled a cross from Shaw and Cavani pounced to level the scores. Pogba fired United into the lead and secured the points with a brilliant strike in the 65th minute. Fulham did push for the equaliser late on but United held on.
So United top the table at the half way mark, although Man City, who are 2 points behind, do have a game in hand.
Sheffield United at home on Wednesday is next.
