In the tense final Premier League game before the Qatar World Cup,Manchester United defeated Fulham with a dramatic 93rd-minute goal from substitute Alejandro Garnacho. Fulham appeared to have grabbed a point in the tense second half at Craven Cottage, but the 18-year-old Argentine sprinted through and beat Bernd Leno with a shot into the bottom corner.
After David de Gea had made a succession of excellent stops, Fulham's Dan James had previously come off the bench to score an equaliser off Tom Cairney's low cross, giving the hosts what appeared to be a well-deserved point. The visitors took the lead in the first half thanks to a goal from Christian Eriksen. Eriksen finished at the back post after slipping in to meet a low cross from Bruno Fernandes.
But Garnacho's winning strike, which came with essentially the final kick of the game, handed United the victory. Due to the Qatar World Cup, which starts on November 20, the Premier League currently takes a six-week hiatus with no domestic top-flight games until December 26. The victory moves United up to fifth position, 11 points behind leaders Arsenal and three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.
