Fulham 2 vs Manchester United 2
Warning… Genuine title contenders do not take a 2-1 lead six minutes from the final whistle, be awarded a penalty moments later and still not take all three points as Manchester United failed to do at Craven Cottage. It’s not something that Sir Alex Ferguson’s sides are renowned for doing but with a whole season ahead of them, the bitter lesson will hopefully sink in before the stakes become even higher. That said, Fulham would have had every right to feel hard done by had they not taken something out of this game. Apart from netting his 150th career goal for the club, Paul Scholes was once again widely acknowledged to have been United’s best performer.
