Tahith Chong free-kick: The Manchester United youngster scored with a stunning free-kick against Fulham.
Manchester United U23s are currently at the top of their division in the Premier League 2.
However, they faced a stunning 3-1 defeat to Fulham last night, which could lead them to drop to the second position.
The only silver lining from the game for Manchester United was Tahith Chong’s free-kick, which opened the goalscoring in the match.
The youngster, who was recently given his senior debut by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the FA Cup game against Reading, scored a stunning goal through the free-kick.
Tahith Chong free-kick:
Tahith Chong took a stunning free-kick in the 26th minute of the game to give Manchester United the lead in the game.
He shot the ball straight into the top-right corner, and the keeper could barely move as the speed of the shot was too high.
Manchester United posted the video of the free-kick:

However, Manchester United conceded almost straight away in the game, and poor defensive errors cost them the game.
The Dutch winger was given his Manchester United debut by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier this month, when he came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute for Juan Mata in the FA Cup third round clash against Reading.
Manchester United won the game 2-0.
Previously, he was an unused substitute in Jose Mourinho’s side in the Champions League game against Juventus, and in United’s 2-0 win against Newcastle under Solskjaer in the first game of 2019.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Chong’s free-kick, and his displays this month:

Derek Langley (ex-head of youth recruitment): “Tahith (Chong) was spotted when he was a 14 year-old playing in a tournament at Carrington – he was on the verge of signing for Chelsea and I managed to convince his parents and the boy his future lied at #mufc.” #mulive [men]

Ole: ”He’s (Rashford) been brought up here. There were a couple of sessions here with the young kids, and Chongy and Angel and him and Jesse, they played together in a certain way.” #mufc [MEN] [via @tahithchong_44 & @utdxtra]
