Man Utd’s FA Cup comeback punishes nine-man Fulham

Manchester United came from behind to beat nine-man Fulham and seal an FA Cup semi-final against Brighton.

Two second-half goals from Bruno Fernandes, either side of a Marcel Sabitzer strike, sealed victory after Aleksandar Mitrovic had put Fulham into a 50th-minute lead.

Fernandes levelled from the spot after Willian had handled a Jadon Sancho shot on the line.

Fulham’s Brazilian winger was sent off, as was Mitrovic for pushing referee Chris Kavanagh as he argued against the decision.

Kavanagh also sent off Fulham manager Marco Silva as he walked over to view the penalty incident on the pitchside monitor.
