“We were only 1-0 up and then a great chance after half-time,” explained Erik ten Hag in his post-match interview with the BBC.
“And then you see that two halves are never the same and the game changes. Fulham gets better and better and more dominant, creates chances and gets the equalizer.
“I think in the first half we played quite well and I think we had to score more goals. The difference between us and Fulham had to be bigger after the first half.”
The Manchester United boss added: “The winning has to do with the belief that you can always score.
“I’m really happy that a sub came in once again – it’s not only 11 players, you need a squad to win trophies and that is what we want.”

Manchester United boss causes controversy with recent transfer decision
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has appeared to contradict himself with his decision on goalkeeper David de Gea.
De Gea, 32, is enjoying a decent season at Old Trafford but his £375,000-a-week contract is due to expire at the end of the current campaign.
The Spaniard is keen to extend his 12-year stint and Ten Hag wants him to stay, although De Gea will have to take a significant pay cut if he is to put pen-to-paper. The Daily Star reports United want De Gea to cut his wages by £100,000-a-week with Ten Hag informing the board at Old Trafford that he wants his No.1 to stick around.
That demand comes despite United being linked with a host of goalkeepers in recent months amid reports Ten Hag was eyeing a replacement.
One of the standout names to be reportedly on their radar is England No.1 Jordan Pickford, who will be in the final year of his contract with Everton next season.
Pickford was key to Everton surviving last season but may seek a fresh challenge next term and will be hoping for a good World Cup in Qatar. Another goalkeeper heading for Qatar is Robert Sanchez. Reports claim that Manchester United – along with Chelsea – are monitoring the Brighton stopper.
