Manchester United Vs. Fulham: Antonio Valencia Makes It 2-0

Antonio Valencia has his first goal in quite some time and it could not have been any easier for the Ecuadorian after an awful mistake from Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer. Patrice Evra pinged in a long ball forwards, Schwarzer decided to come out to pick up the pass, and was beaten to the ball by Nani. Even more unfortunately, the race for the ball took the goalkeeper completely out of the penalty area leaving the goal managed by Gael Kakuta, which was a recipe for trouble. Nani swung in an easy cross and it took a slight deflection before landing right on Valencia's head.

When an attacking player has a free header two yards from an open goal, you expect him to score. And so he did. It's 2-0 Manchester United and the game is already over at Old Trafford. Fulham gave it a good go for the first 30 minutes, but United go merrily marching on towards the title.
