Christian Eriksen scored his first Manchester United goal in the 2-1 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday.

On his first Manchester United goal, Eriksen told BBC Sport: “It’s been a long wait. I think I owed a few before so I’m happy to be on the scoresheet. I should have have two, though!”

On Manchester United’s performance against Fulham, Eriksen added: “It was a hard-fought game but to score in the last minute is a good feeling.

“We probably should have scored a lot more goals before we did, rather than leave it so late. It is the mentality though, to keep going.”
