Revealed: United's Man of the Match v Fulham

Tuesday 18 May 2021 21:45

Edinson Cavani's wonder strike against Fulham may have come too late for him to win Manchester United's Goal of the Season award but at least it landed the Uruguayan another Man of the Match accolade.

The no.7's sensational lob into the Stretford End net endeared him to the 10,000 supporters who had gleefully returned to the stands at Old Trafford, as well as the majority of fans voting in a full-time poll via our Official App.

Nearly two-thirds of the voters (63 per cent) plumped for Cavani, who is the Reds' reigning Player of the Month after his attacking exploits in April - he netted five times, despite only starting four games.

Edi has already grabbed four goals this month and now has an overall tally of 16 in this first season as a United player.

The runner-up in our Man of the Match poll was another recent award winner. Fresh from being photographed alongside his Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year and Goal of the Season trophies, Bruno Fernandes performed well enough in the 1-1 draw with the Cottagers to claim 16 per cent of the votes.

That was double the number earned by David De Gea, who caught the eye on his return to United's Premier League line-up with a double save to deny Ademola Lookman and Fabio Carvalho in quick succession when the score was still 1-0.

Edinson Cavani (63 per cent)
Bruno Fernandes (16 per cent)
David De Gea (8 per cent)
Scott McTominay (3 per cent)

Congratulations, Edi, and thanks to everyone who voted.
