U21: United 2 Fulham 2

Keane in the middle. Although Jesse Joronen pulled off a reflex save, the ball rebounded back into the net off Arthurworrey.

Lawrence should have bagged an equaliser after a superb link-up with Will Keane but he dragged his shot wide of an inviting target before Fletcher's final contribution was an exquisite ball over the top to Will Keane, who could not connect properly on the volley.

Back came Fulham with Dembele forcing a stop out of Johnstone and then heading a great chance off target before the keeper's hands were warmed by Ronny Minkwitz's ambitious attempt. 17-year-old Dembele almost wrapped up the points when flashing a powerful drive inches wide. United rallied and Joe Rothwell's shot was blocked by Joronen after a run by fellow substitute Saidy Janko.

Seconds later, Rothwell drove forward to pick out Michael Keane on the edge of the box and the centre-back unleashed a ferocious drive that flew into the top corner of Joronen's net to make it 2-2. It was a strike certainly worthy of at least a point in front of the watching David Beckham but the Cottagers remain unbeaten after an impressive performance.

United: Johnstone; Varela, Thorpe, M.Keane, Blackett; Cole, Ekangamene (Janko 68), D.Fletcher (Rothwell 67), James, Lawrence; W.Keane. Subs not used: J.Pereira, Pearson, Barmby.
