Comments:

League position: 6th This was the first time that Manchester United had scored four or more goals in a game at Old Trafford since a 4-1 win against Newcastle United in the Premier League on 18 November 2017. It was the first time they had won a Premier League game by a margin of three or more goals since 15 January 2018 against Stoke City (3-0). Juan Mata became the fifth Spaniard to score 50 goals in the Premier League after Fernando Torres, David Silva, Diego Costa and Cesc Fàbregas. This was United's 50th win in the Premier League under manager José Mourinho (played 92). Luke Shaw was originally named amongst the substitutes before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Andreas Pereira took his place on the bench.

Comments:

League position: 20th Fulham were now without a win in their last 11 away games in the Premier League and lost the last seven in a row. The Whites set a new club record of 20 consecutive games in the top division without keeping a clean sheet. They had now conceded 40 goals in their opening 16 games of this Premier League season. Only Barnsley in 1997-98 (43) had conceded more at this stage of a top division since the 1965-66 season.
