Manchester United ended a run of four Premier League games without a win with a dominant performance in thrashing Fulham 4-1 at Old Trafford this afternoon.
Ashley Young opened the scoring on 13 minutes from left-back by cutting into the penalty area and firing across goal into Sergio Rico’s far corner.
Juan Mata scored the 50th goal of his Premier League career just before the half hour mark when Marcus Rashford teed the Spaniard up just inside the penalty area for which the attacking midfielder coolly rolled into the corner with a first-time effort.
In a man of the match performance Rashford set up Romelu Lukaku for a tap in a few minutes before half-time to make it 3-0.
Fulham scored a consolation midway through the second half when Ander Herrera carelessly brought down substitute Aboubakar Kamara. The French forward picked himself up to convert from 12 yards out.
Marcus Rashford got the goal his performance deserved in the final 10 minutes when he collected the ball down the left wing, casually strolled inside unchallenged and fired home, beating Sergio Rico at his near post.
