Manchester United continued their amazing form under Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer with an easy 3-0 victory at Fulham.
Fulham was the perfect opponent for a team that was saving some energy on their mind before facing PSG. United managed to play efficiently and net the goals early, giving them some time to stretch their legs by the end of the match.
It has been a remarkable turnaround given that United were 11 points off fourth place before hiring Solskjær. No manager has held a better record from his first nine games in the league’s history and, while Chelsea could leapfrog them when they visit Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, it was striking to observe the change in a group who were choked by negativity during Mourinho’s grim reign.
While the outcome of this match was sweet for the fans of United, it left a sour taste on the Fulham fanbase. Fulham fans booed their manager Claudio Ranieri. Fulham has the worst defense of the league right now and it would take a miracle to keep the team in the 17th place.
