Manchester United will end the day in the top four of the Premier League for the first time since the opening day of the season after yet another convincing display, this time away to struggling Fulham.

United came into the game eight league games unbeaten under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and took the lead after just 14 minutes, with the rejuvenated Paul Pogba scoring a fine effort at the near post.

That goal came after the hosts almost took the lead themselves in the first minute, with Luciano Vietto firing wide after being set up by Andre Schurrle.

However, midway through the first period, the Red Devils struck again, with Anthony Martial scoring a superb solo goal.

The visitors were now in complete control against a Fulham side looking more and more likely to find themselves playing Championship football next season.

Just after the hour-mark, Pogba would score again, this time from the penalty spot after Juan Mata was fouled in the box by Maxime Le Marchand, a player who had a game to forget.

The game would end 3-0 to United, a result which seems them leapfrop Chelsea into fourth place in the table, with Solskjaer making it a record-breaking 25 points from his first nine games with United, more than any other boss in their first nine games in charge of a team in the Premier League.

While United continue to thrive under Solskjaer, Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham show few signs of avoiding the drop come May.
