Manchester United confirmed their first place with a hard-fought victory (1-2) at Craven Cottage. The match, game-week 18 of the Premier League, started badly. Lookman put Fulham ahead after just six minutes. However, like so many times this season, United showed remarkable reaction capacity. Cavani equalised in the 21st minute and Pogba, with a great shot in the 65th minute, scored the winning goal.
