Fulham stun nine-man United

Published Add your comment

Fulham blew the title race wide open with a sensational 2-0 win over nine-man Manchester United at Craven Cottage.

Danny Murphy put Fulham in front from the penalty spot when Paul Scholes was sent off for handling Bobby Zamora's goal-bound header in the 17th minute.

Zoltan Gera condemned United to their first back-to-back top flight defeats for four years when he scored a second in the 87th minute and United's miserable afternoon was capped seconds later when Wayne Rooney was sent off for a second bookable offence.
