Manchester United beat Fulham with a late winner from captain Bruno Fernandes, having already seen a goal harshly disallowed early in to the first half.

Erik ten Hag looked delighted on the sidelines, with the substitutes bench jumping up in celebration behind him, with the club securing a much needed three points after a disastrous two performances and results against City and Newcastle in the lead up.

Speak to MUTV after the game he hailed the team spirit of the players and hoped for the momentum to carry on to Wednesday’s game against Copenhagen.

It’s a good feeling of course. If you win it always is. But the performance was good. It’s a massive win and a solid performance.

This team has a good spirit and they are strong and they fight for each other, I think for the whole game. But as I said, it was solid. On the ball, we took dominance in the game and I think the pressing, and it’s not easy against a good side as Fulham, they’re very good on the ball, but we got the press right.

It’s always great when you score in the dying seconds of the game, I would always say that you win a game, but we scored already in the first half, very quickly in the game. So we can say from the whistle till the end, we played a good game.

We take that with us. That is what I also said to the group. But this attitude, you need it every game. There are no easy games, we know that. But you have to bring this. And today it was written.
