Goals from Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba cancelled out Ademola Lookman's early strike for the hosts.

So how did both sets of players perform?

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Ademola Lookman: 7.6

After getting an early confidence boost in the form of the opening goal, Lookman put in a performance worthy of being on the winning side.

The winger took more shots than any other player (5), with three of those finding the target and the other two drawing blocks.

He also completed 100% of his 11 passes, proving a constant thorn in United's side even though he saw the ball less frequently than he might have liked.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Alphonse Areola: 5.6

Having carved out an early lead against such in-form opposition, the last thing Fulham needed was to hand United a way back into the game.

But that's what Areola did in clumsily spilling a seemingly harmless Bruno Fernandes cross into the path of Edinson Cavani for the equaliser.

In fairness to the Frenchman, he had no chance with Pogba's goal, but it was his first-half error that denied the hosts any share of the spoils.

STAR MAN

Paul Pogba: 7.8

Even beyond the fantastic goal that won the game, Pogba was a huge influence on another away win for United.

The midfielder made more passes (80) than any other player on the pitch, completing 85% of his pass attempts.

He also won more duels than any visiting player (seven out of 11) and recovered the ball on nine occasions.
