A last gasp equaliser from Bent sinks Moyes’ Champions League dreams.
It was yet another disappointing result for Manchester United at Old Trafford as bottom placed Fulham earned a point in their Premier League clash.
Steve Sidwell had given the visitors the lead in the first half, before a quickfire double from Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick seemed to have gifted United all three points, only for Bent to score in the 94th minute.
Here’s how the Red Devils rated.
David de Gea – 5
Very little to do in a match that the hosts dominated, but whilst could do nothing about Sidwell’s opener, parried the ball straight to Bent for the equaliser.
Rafael – 5
Played more as a right winger but generally the Brazilian’s crossing was poor and was substituted as a result.
Chris Smalling – 7
Played a more advanced role despite being a centre-back and was always reliable when the England international had the ball at his feet.
Nemanja Vidic – 6
Not a great day for the captain who was at fault in some capacity for both goals, although defended strongly throughout the rest of the match.
Patrice Evra – 7
Did well in support down the left hand side and has been one of the few positives for the Red Devils in what has been a poor campaign.
Juan Mata – 6
Started on the right somewhat bewilderingly and as a result could not really get into the game, although played some nice passes including the assist for van Persie’s goal.
Darren Fletcher – 6
Just had to feed the more creative players which the midfielder did so well, but was unsurprisingly subbed for a more attacking option in the second half.
Michael Carrick – 7
Scored what everyone thought was the winning goal with a deflected strike from the edge of the box, but was beaten to the ball by Sidwell in the buildup to the Cottagers’ equalising effort.
Ashley Young – 7
A solid performance from the winger who delivered some good balls into the box and even showed some physicality as United relentlessly hammered at the Fulham door.
Wayne Rooney – 6
Not the best of days for the 28-year-old and the man tipped to be the next United skipper, although would have scored a fine goal had it not been for the brilliance of Maarten Stekelenburg.
Robin van Persie – 7
Should have scored in the first half, but was constantly a threat in attack and was in the right place at the right time for the home side’s first.
Adnan Januzaj – 8
Why the talented teenager didn’t start the match is a mystery, for as soon as Januzaj was brought on the United attack was lifted and the goals started coming.
Javier Hernadez – 6
Sent on to add more firepower and had one decent chance to score.
Antonio Valencia – 5
Was brought on for Rafael and certainly provided more going forward, but when United were forced to defend the South American was caught out.
