Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick scored second-half goals 90 seconds apart to save Manchester United the embarrassment of losing at Old Trafford to last-place Fulham. Darren Bent ensured there would still be plenty of reasons to laugh at David Moyes’ club with an equalizer deep into
Fergie time stoppage time to level the game at 2-2.
Somehow, each week the Moyes’ era finds a way to reach a new nadir. This one was pretty awful, as it undid all the positives from the late comeback in the second half. The draw means United are still nine points behind Liverpool for the final Champions League place. On the plus side, United got plenty of crossing practice in today although the Red Devils still need some work:
18 – Just 18 of Manchester United's 81 crosses against Fulham found a teammate. Fruitless.—

I haven’t consulted the heat maps or anything, but that diving header in the 94th minute might have been Bent’s only touch of the entire match.
