Fulham suffered a late 1-0 loss at the weekend to Chelsea which ended a five-match streak of draws. The Cottagers have positioned themselves to overcome the drop this season and are just four points from safety as they chase 17th-placed Burnley in the standings. Scott Parker’s team will have a difficult fixture this weekend as they face off with Manchester United at Craven Cottage on Wednesday.
Manchester United parked the bus for much of the game versus Liverpool at Anfield and left Merseyside with a nil-nil draw. The media continues to praise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the squad for its development. But it is difficult to forget this is the same Manchester United who lost 6-2 to Spurs earlier this season. In addition, Manchester United have failed to defeat Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Leicester City.
The good news for supporters is that Manchester United are picking up points against the teams, like Fulham, that they should beat. The Red Devils are at the top of the table after matchday 18, but depending on Leicester City and Manchester City’s results this week – they play prior to Manchester United -- could be in third place when kicking off versus Fulham. If they are in third, the pressure will be on Solskjaer’s team to win.
Fulham vs Manchester United Betting Odds
Manchester United head into matchday 19 in third place in the current Premier League form table. They have taken 14 points from their last 18 on offer. They have scored their opponents 12-5 during that six-match time span. Fulham took five points from their last 18 on offer. All five points came from draws. Their 1-0 loss to Chelsea at the weekend was harsh as the club defended well with 10 men but finally conceded a striker near the end of the match.
Fulham have taken a mere six points from 27 on offer at Craven Cottage. They have scored a mere six goal this term as star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has struggled for goals, form, and fitness. Fulham are at odds of 11/2 to claim a win at full-time versus Manchester United on matchday 19. Fulham have not beaten Manchester United since the 2009-10 season. Twelve matches have occurred since then with Manchester United winning or drawing those fixtures.
Manchester United are at odds of 7/13 according to leading sportsbooks to claim a victory at Craven Cottage. Their last trip to the cottage came in 2018-19 and finished in a 3-0 victory. The Red Devils have the league’s best away points total this season. They have taken 23 of 27 possible on the road and are unbeaten away from Old Trafford. Two of their last three road games did finish in draws.
Fulham vs Manchester United Team News
Solskjaer should rethink is team on Wednesday. At Anfield, he played two holding midfielders with Bruno Fernandes in an attacking role and Paul Pogba on the right side. Pogba struggled the entire match while Fernandes’ impact was limited.
Pogba completed just 59% of his passes, was dispossessed twice, took just 63 touches and missed a golden opportunity to score to win the match. Solskjaer is likely to remove either Scott McTominay or Fred from central midfield and restore Pogba in central role. Full-back Brandon Williams is ruled out with an injury. The full-back has found playing time difficult this term and is rumoured as leaving on a loan.
Antonee Robinson will sit out the match after being sent off against Chelsea with a straight red card. Mitrovic is a doubt for the fixture but is training lightly in anticipation for a return. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is likely to return to the starting XI after missing the match versus Chelsea due to the Stamford Bridge outfit being his parent club. Tom Cairney, Mario Lemina, and Terence Kongolo are all three ruled out through their respective injuries.
Parker is desperate to add quality players to the squad this month. He hopes to add players sooner than later. The manager has expressed a desire to get deals done before deadline day when panic buys are made.
Fulham vs Manchester United Prediction
Both teams to score: NO @ 1/1 - BET NOW
Manchester United’s defence is playing well in the league. The Red Devils have not allowed a goal in their last two league matches. Liverpool were unable to break down Manchester United’s defence with David De Gea making some vital saves, so it is unlikely Fulham will cut through the defence. Three of Fulham’s last four league matches finished with both teams not scoring goals.
Marcus Rashford to score anytime @11/8 - BET NOW
Marcus Rashford did very little against Liverpool on matchday 18 as the Reds defence kept him at bay. Fulham’s defence is unlikely to keep the striker from breaking out and making an impact on the side. Rashford has seven goals in 18 appearances in the league. He averages a goal every 219 minutes in the Premier League. Rashford hasn’t scored in any of his last three matches but could break is duck against Fulham.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 37/50 - BET NOW
Fulham’s defence has improved massively as the season has gone on. They really had to improve or may have set the Premier League record for goals conceded in a campaign. Fulham have allowed 25 goals this season for an average of 1.5 per match. Manchester United have scored 34 times, the second most goals in the division. They have allowed 24 scores to opponents, however. Three of Manchester United’s last six matches in the league finished with over 2.5 goals scored. Fulham’s games have seen fewer goals, but that trend could end this weekend.
The last four league matches between Fulham and Manchester United finished with over 2.5 goals. Three of those matches ended in Manchester United wins while one finished in a stalemate. The clubs are at odds of 17/5 to draw. Despite Fulham’s improved defence, Wednesday night’s game should end with a Manchester United victory and a return to the top of the table.
