United produced another dominant display under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Martial and Paul Pogba standing out as the Red Devils fired three goals past a timid Cottagers side bereft of ideas against a superior opponent.
The visitors looked to get a third before half-time and Phil Jones nearly got himself on the scoresheet when he fired just over from the edge of the box after Fulham failed to clear a corner. "Of course, we're all happy after winning the game". "We talked about this there's still a long way to go but we want to stay there". "But I think the fact that we have been able to get those points and catch up so quickly is full credit to the squad and how well we have been playing, but now we are in fourth it is ours to lose".
Fulham were rattled and nine minutes later Martial showed just why they were right to have been concerned about him. He came to the dressing room. Yet to win away from home this season, their next three visitors at Craven Cottage are all powerhouses - Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
"It's never about one person when the team is winning games of football". It's the whole team, it's us together.

Ranieri felt his players lacked the composure at 1-0 down to get themselves back into the game against such talented opposition.
Martial's scintillating run and finish was the pick of the goals on a blustery afternoon at Craven Cottage, where Pogba followed his impressive opener with a second-half penalty that sealed a comfortable 3-0 win that increases the pressure on struggling Fulham. "We've done really well in the 11 games we've played, but that's down to the team effort", he said.
'I understand the fans want to see the players fight until the end.
"We know there's a very, very good player there with Fred so hopefully he'll adjust to the English game because there's no doubt there's talent, absolutely no doubt".

"They wasted time. I know they won trophies under Mourinho, but they went backwards under him, I feel, and the money they spent didn't correlate to what they achieved".
"That's the real problem".
Herrera - perhaps more than any other Red - has helped Pogba flourish by offering him a defensive shield, as well as forming part of a strong midfield block which has created stability in front of a defence which has creaked at times this season.
