Ten Hag’s Manchester United surprised the media and the fans in the last few hours by returning to their poor level of performances in the season following the absence of Rasmus Hojlund in the team, which made the Red Devils struggle against Fulham in Old Trafford.

The 19-year-old young academy player Amari Forson was the main news at Manchester United, as the Englishman was placed by Ten Hag on the right wing while an irrelevant Marcus Rashford was up front of the Red Devils’ attack.

The Mancunian striker tried to do everything to fit the Hojlund’s role in the team, but was seen lack of effectiveness in the last metters, which caused that Fulham was the first team in taking the lead in the clash.

It happened in the 65th minute, when Calvin Bassey put the Cottagers ahead in the scoreboard and United went wild to the attack, which ended up with Harry Maguire equalizing the game in the 89th after finding in the penalty box a rebound following a shot by Bruno Fernandes.

The Red Devils were terribly slammed in the last minutes

With United totally desperate to get a victory, Fulham profited the gaps the Red Devils left in their defense to create an effective counter attack that ended with the second goal of the Cottagers, made by Alex Iwobi in the 97th. Ten Hag’s team lost his chance to keep on fighting for the Champions League positions and remained sixth placed with 44 points behind Aston Villa and Tottenham, with 52 and 47 points respectively.
