Darren Bent scored a last-gasp equaliser as Fulham held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Steve Sidwell had put the visitors ahead in the first half, before late goals from Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick look to have secured three points, but Bent struck with a minute remaining of injury time.
