Manchester United are currently playing Fulham in what is the penultimate game of the season for the Reds. United are looking to get back into winning form after their two consecutive league defeats against Leicester and Liverpool.

Edinson Cavani has given Manchester United a perfect start by scoring in the 15th minute of the match and United lead 1-0 against Fulham. Fans have been welcomed back into the stadiums in the Premier League for the final two match-days and they were treated to a world-class goal just after 15 minutes.

Edinson Cavani scores from almost 40 yards out

The goal came from almost nowhere as David De Gea floated a long kick towards the Fulham half from his goal-kick. The ball fell onto the feet of Bruno Fernandes who flicked it on with perfectly weighted back-heel for Cavani.

Cavani received the ball in Fulham’s half in an on-side position as Fulham defenders failed to track his run. The Uruguyan had plenty of options wide open but chose the most outrageous one, which was to shoot from the half way line.

Alphonse Areola, the Fulham keeper was off his line and having seen that, Cavani let fly a a first time shot which nestled into the back off the net.

The goal took everyone by surprise and fans expressed their delight on Twitter.
