Iwobi, Calvin Bassey scores as Fulham Stun Manchester United at Old Trafford

In a sensational turn of events at Old Trafford on Saturday, Fulham pulled off a remarkable upset, securing a historic 2-1 victory over Manchester United, thanks to goals from Nigerian duo Calvin Bassey and Alex Iwobi.

The match started with both teams displaying attacking intent, but it was Fulham who scored in the 65th minute when Calvin Bassey found the back of the net.

However, Manchester United fought back, with Harry Maguire equalizing in the dying minutes of regular time.

Just when it seemed like both teams would settle for a draw, Fulham’s Alex Iwobi, fresh from his exploits at the Africa Cup of Nations, delivered a stunning blow to the Red Devils with a goal deep into added time.

Adama Traore’s blistering run set up Iwobi, who calmly curled the ball past Andre Onana, sealing a famous win for the Cottagers.

The defeat comes as a significant blow to Manchester United, who had been enjoying a resurgence in form, winning their previous four Premier League matches.

Despite hopes of qualifying for the Champions League reigniting among fans, this loss leaves them eight points adrift of Aston Villa.

The win marks a long-awaited triumph away from home, their first since the start of the season.

With Calvin Bassey opening his account for the Cottagers and Alex Iwobi delivering a memorable winner, manager Scott Parker will be hoping this victory serves as a turning point in their campaign to avoid relegation.
