Manchester United teenager, Alejandro Garnacho, has again proved that the future is bright, with an heroic performance, which gave the club all the three points inside Craven Cottage on Sunday.
Christian Eriksen gave United the lead in the 14th minute of the first half, while the Manchester United former winger, Daniel James, drew level for Fulham off the bench in the 66th minute.
At the blast of the whistle, the visitors put pressure on their hosts with a barrage of attacks, which resulted in Eriksen’s 14th minute first goal for Manchester United.

He would have made it double two minutes later if he had connected Bruno Fernandes’ cross with only the goalkeeper to beat.
The second half saw an improved Fulham, which pegged Manchester United back in their half.
Besides, a great work from Antonee Robinson to set up the Fulham attack and grabbed the ball off Bruno Fernandes before former United winger Daniel James scored.
Manchester United however grabbed last-gasp win at Fulham thanks to Garnacho.
In truth, Manchester United never got going and they missed Raphael Varane, Diogo Dalot, Antony and Jadon Sancho, but their rising teenage star stole the headlines for the Erik ten Hag’s side.
United are solid in fifth place as they are three points off the top four and have a game in-hand on Tottenham and Newcastle above them. Fulham remain on 19 points after a gut-wrenching defeat in stoppage time for the second week in a row against a Manchester team.
