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.
