Nottingham’s prolific scorer, Taiwo Awoniyi scored in the 4th minute to put his side 1-0 up before Willy Boly added to the tally to put the visitors on course for victory at Old Trafford but Manchester United came back to win 3-2 courtesy of goals from Christian Eriksen, Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes.

Taiwo Awoniyi and Willy Boly had stunned United and given Steve Cooper’s side an excellent opportunity to claim their first away win in the Premier League since January but Christian Eriksen pulled one back in the 17th minute  and the Reds Devil scored two more in the second half to deny Nottingham an away win in eight months.

Casemiro levelled scores in the 52nd minute of the encounter, before Captain Bruno Fernandes, scored the winner from the spot, after Marcus Rashford was fouled by Danilo.

However, Arsenal and visiting Fulham shared the spoils after a very thrilling encounter at the Emirate.

Arsenal were already coasting home to victory but a late equalizer from 10 man Fulham ended the Gunners 100 percent winning streak.

The away team scored the first goal right from the kick-off through Andreas Pereira’s goal but Arsenal came back in the second half, scoring two goals back to back from Bukayo Saka’s penalty and Eddie Nketiah’s goal.

Nigeria international, Calvin Bassey was dismissed for a bad challenge on Nketiah.

The Gunners could not maintain the tempo even with a man advantage, they conceded again in the 87th minute of the encounter when Joao Palhinha lashed on to a cross from a corner kick to equalize for the cottagers.

The result meant that Arsenal have gotten 7 points from a maximum of nine and still remain on course to fight for the title.
