Manchester United breezed their way past Fulham thanks to a double from Paul Pogba and an Anthony Martial strike. 

Fulham started on the front foot and had chances to take the lead in an open start to the game, but it was United who took the lead and once again it was Pogba who was at the heart of it.

Martial played the ball inside to Pogba, who was played onside by Joe Bryan, and after finding space on the left of the area he smashed a fine finish past Sergio Rico who was wrong-footed and unable to get a hand on shot as it flew in past his near post.

Martial doubled the lead in the 23rd minute with a superb solo effort, starting from inside his own half and jinking in and out of the Fulham defence before opening his body up to slot into the far post for his 11th of the season.

Manchester United effectively wrapped the game up shortly after the hour, as Mata was brought down inside the area by Maxime Le Marchand while trying to turn away from goal.

Pogba stepped up nonchalantly to fire the ball into the corner and put the result beyond doubt.
