Manchester United were given a harsh reality check at Old Trafford as Nigeria’s Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi’s injury-time effort gave Fulham only their second Old Trafford victory since 1963.

Without injured striker Rasmus Hojlund, the hosts were ineffective in attack until the final minute of normal time, when Harry Maguire seemed to have rescued a point for the hosts.

But Iwobi had the final say deep into nine minutes of stoppage time, restoring an advantage initially given to them by Nigeria defender Calvin Bassey, who lashed home the loose ball after his header from a Fulham corner had been blocked by team-mate Timothy Castagne.
