Iwobi:I was confident Fulham will beat Man United


Alex Iwobi says he was confident Fulham will defeat Manchester United despite the Red Devils scoring a late equaliser, reports Owosports.com.ng.

His Super Eagles teammate Calvin Bassey gave Fulham the lead from a corner before Harry Maguire levelled from close range in the 89th minute. However, Fulham responded well to the setback and it was Iwobi who popped up to score the winning goal in the 96th minute.

His strike earned Fulham their first away win against United since October 2003, ending a run of 16 visits to Old Trafford without a victory. Speaking after the game, Iwobi said he was “over the moon” with the result and revealed they remained confident they could win even after Maguire’s equaliser.

“We always had the ability to create chances, we had so many in the final third, it was just about taking them and luckily I was able to take mine at the end,” he said. “I’m over the moon right now to come back into the team and get the win here – there is no better feeling.
“We feel we performed really well and have been performing really well recently, it is just about getting the results. This will give us a world of confidence and hopefully kick on. Everyone’s emotion is high and we will have to dust down, but it is a confidence boost. It’s a win for the memory bank.”
