Fulham dreams and drowns the hope of Sheffield United

Sergio Escario Barcelona Editor

Dramatic the encounter lived in Craven Cottage between two of the last three classified of the Premier
League, with the dream of permanence at stake. Despite the many changes – up to five – that Chris Wilder introduced in his starting eleven, the Sheffield
United he was not able to beat the former madridista Alphonse
Areola and, in the absence of 14 days and 42 points to play, the accounts begin to not come out to the ‘blades’ and their salvation seems utopian.

The Fulham, meanwhile, clings to permanence thanks to a goal from Ademola
Lookman, which leaves Scott Parker’s three points behind a Newcastle who is visiting today Manchester
United at Old Trafford.

Lookman’s fourth goal

After a first half in which there were hardly any chances, it was Ruben Loftus-Cheek who alerted the Sheffield, with a shot from within the small area that saved George
Baldock under sticks with the goalkeeper Aaron
Ramsdale already beaten. But the second time was the charm for him Fulham. Lookman turned a ball into a goal assist and after cutting his pair and having some luck in taking a rebound, he beat between the legs to Ramsdale and sketched some hope on the ‘cottager’ horizon.
