Fulham Defeats Champions League Leader Manchester United, 2-0

Two players of Manchester United, Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney, were sent off as the Red Devils' title hopes took another shock blow at Fulham. Scholes was sent off in the 18th minute for handling Bobby Zamora's header, Danny Murphy converting the penalty. And as United campaigned for a second-half equalizer, Zoltan Gera struck on the break with a superb control and finish. Making things worse for Manchester United, Rooney threw the ball away in frustration to earn a second booking on a miserable day for United, whose lead could be cut to one point. It was a historic win for Fulham, as it was for United - although not one they will look back on with any happy memories.
