Man Utd crash to second straight defeat

Manchester United slumped to their second successive Premier League defeat to throw the English title race wide open on Saturday. The reigning champions went down 2-0 to mid-table Fulham and ended with nine men after Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney were sent off at Craven Cottage. Defeat for the leaders follows their calamitous 4-1 home reverse to arch-rivals Liverpool last week
