United equal league best with Fulham win

Monday 29 May 2023 13:00

Manchester United completed yet another very special accolade on Sunday at Old Trafford, boasting a clean sweep over newly promoted teams during our 2022/23 Premier League campaign.

Thanks to our impressive 2-1 win over Fulham at the Theatre of Dreams yesterday afternoon, the Reds won all six encounters with last year’s up-and-comers, in the shape of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and the Cottagers.

Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes were on target to secure a season finale win for United, after Kenny Tete’s first-half opener in M16. 

It is a feat that we last achieved back in the 2011/12 season, with local rivals Manchester City winning the league that year too.

Manchester United 2 Fulham 1


The Reds close out our Premier League season on a high, with another win at home.

Erik ten Hag’s side got the ball rolling in the reverse leg of the fixture back in November, as we travelled to Craven Cottage prior to the winter break.

Christian Eriksen notched United in front before ex-Red Daniel James came off the bench to level the scoring with just over an hour played. 

Alejandro Garnacho’s stoppage-time strike snatched all three points at the death for our eighth win of the campaign at that point, as the Reds claimed a vital 2-1 triumph.
We’d welcome Nottingham Forest to Old Trafford next with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scoring before half-time. Brazilian midfielder Fred then sealed the points three minutes from time, as Erik ten Hag's side romped to a 3-0 success in December.

A comprehensive away trip to The City Ground would see us complete the double over PL newcomers, winning 2-0 courtesy of goals from Antony and Diogo Dalot back in April.

Highlights | The key moments from our Premier League final-day fixture are here...

Bournemouth were the third newly promoted side we faced, as the south-coast outfit travelled to the Theatre of Dreams as we welcomed in 2023 in style.
Casemiro opened the floodgates in the first 45 minutes, with our second coming just after the break through defender Luke Shaw. Rashford found himself on the scoresheet late on to close out a 3-0 win.

Our Brazilian midfielder would come back to haunt the Cherries once more, scoring the only goal of the game in the reverse fixture at the Vitality Stadium at the start of May, winning 1-0 in our final away outing of the campaign.
