Fulham’s early goal sparked United into life, says Solskjaer


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his Manchester United side “needed a wake-up call” after a stunning Paul Pogba strike sealed a 2-1 victory at Fulham and sent them back to the top of the Premier League.

The Cottagers took the lead after six minutes when Ademola Lookman turned the ball into the bottom corner.

But United responded as Edinson Cavani capitalised on a mistake from Fulham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to level before Pogba curled home from outside the area in the 65th minute to secure the three points.
