The Three Hugely Important Takeaways for United From the Fulham Game That Will Truly Serve United Well Ahead of Their PSG Clash

Fulham Vs United, Fulham

Manchester United came out as 0-3 winners over Fulham at the Craven Cottage at the weekend. This they achieved thanks to a brace from midfield maestro Paul Pogba and another splendid goal from his compatriot Anthony Martial.

The Red Devils went about their intentions early in the game and took an early lead from the French man to set the tone for United’s victory. Their manager will undoubtedly be delighted to have claimed all three points ahead a gruelling set of games coming up for them this season.

On this note, we evaluate the three hugely important things we learnt from the game about United that will really serve them well to keep in mind ahead of their mid week clash against PSG.

Mind Blowing Display from Pogba Against Fulham

The Frenchman simply cannot stop making the headlines whether for the wrong (his Mourinho Saga) or for the right reasons (Solskjaer managerial trust in the player) which has been the case this season. The player effortlessly broke the deadlock for his side as he opened the scoring from a difficult angle off a pass from his French compatriot Anthony Martial.

His overall gameplay against Fulham was terrific as he genuinely commanded his influence superiorly on the pitch. This is what United and Solskjaer need to implement consistently as they seek to climb up the table in the Premier League with hope for a top-four finish.

The French Connection

It’s obvious the impact the French contingent has played in United’s resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Martial and Pogba both have seamlessly lifted the Red Devils side on more than one occasions under the new regime, which can be seen as their reciprocation of the unconditional faith and trust put in them by their new manager.

This was also efficiently achieved alongside young talent Marcus Rashford as the English man proved his worth alongside Pogba to down Leicester City away last weekend. This connection of like minded intelligent footballers was reenacted once again as Pogba benefitted from an intelligent pass from Anthony Martial to open the scoring in exemplary fashion early on in the first half

Clean Sheet For United

The need for a clean sheet in the Gunner Solskjaer’s United side could not be overemphasized as they dispatched Fullam with complete character and precision.

This was also seen as Leicester City were downed away from home at the King Power Stadium. The ability to keep it tight at the back has been an issue for some point now for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as was perceivable in their narrow wins like the 2-1 against Brighton & Hove Albion. This was also glaring in the Red Devils 2-2 draw with Burnley at home but now with two clean sheets, United are on a steady course in the season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to make a strong case for the permanent job at Manchester United.
