Fulham player ratings in last-minute defeat to United at the Cottage

Fulham fell to a 1-0 last-minute defeat to Manchester United at Craven Cottage this lunchtime - the Red Devils' seventh win on the bounce here. But how did the Fulham players perform individually? Here's a close look at their afternoons.

Leno: Pulled off a fantastic save from Bruno Fernandez’s free-kick late on which looked to have secured Fulham a point, but will feel he could have done more from the winner. Little to do apart from that. One good tip over from Garnacho early in the second half. 6

Bassey: Largely untroubled by Hojlund. Had one decent flick at the other end which was cleared off the line from a corner - one of the many chances which fell to the Whites in the second period which they will regret. 6

Wilson: Unable to stamp his authority on the game in the first half but much improved after the break. Had one good run in the second half but passed wide to Willian when a shot from a central position seemed the better option. 7

Ream: Didn’t give Hojlund a sniff all afternoon but failed to clear in the lead-up to the winner – which proved hugely costly. 6

Pereira: Did well. His best move was beating several United players in midfield then receiving a return pass down the left which saw him put into a decent position, but he lost control of the ball at the crucial moment. 7

Muniz: Lost his marker at the corner which led to United’s disallowed goal. Caused Jonny Evans problems all afternoon with his strength. One decent header over the bar. Went off injured. 6

Willian: Best player on the pitch – certainly in the first half. He appears reborn here after his nightmare spell at Arsenal. Had a shot blocked early on after beating Harry Maguire. Couple of other decent efforts shot just wide. Had the better of Wan-Bissaka all afternoon. 8

Castagne: Most United attacks in the first half came down his side. Rarely troubled by the cautioned Garnacho in the second period. 7

Iwobi: Pretty ineffective in the first period. One storming run which ended with a disappointing shot over the bar. Much better and more effective in the second half. 6

Palhinha: Strong in midfield. Won most of his duels which led to the beginning of some threatening moves. One shot very well saved by Onana. 7

Robinson: Comfortable against Antony and often a threat going forward. But produced nothing of major note. 6

Subs: Vinicius/Lukic/De Cordova Reid/Jiminez/Cairney – all introduced too late to have much of an impact
