Fulham beat Manchester United 2-0

Fulham reopened the Premier League title race with a 2-0 win over Manchester United yesterday at Craven Cottage.

Danny Murphy opened the scoring for the Cottagers from the penalty spot on 17 minutes after Paul Scholes had handled a goal bound Bobby Zamora header earning himself a red card in the process.

United played Fulham off the picth in the second half despite being down to 10 men. But luckily for the home side, their keeper Mark Schwarzer was in inspired form pulling off a string of excellent saves to keep his side ahead.

Substitute Zoltan Gera doubled Fulham's lead three minutes from the end with a brilliant overhead volley to seal a famous win and ease Roy Hodgson's side's relegation worries.

To make matters worse for Sir Alex Ferguson's team, Wayne Rooney was sent off for dissent late on and could receive a ban for his petulant reaction afterwards. Liverpool take on Aston Villa this afternoon in what is now a crucial match in the title race.
