The Line: Manchester United -163/Draw +333/Fulham +475, Over/Under:
In the English Premier League, Manchester United are set to play against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Manchester United have been in incredible form and they won their previous game as they beat Leicester City away from home. It was a very convincing performance by the Red Devils as the team held 56% of the possession while having a pass accuracy of 81%. Marcus Rashford was the superstar for Manchester United as the English striker scored the only goal for the game. As it currently stands, Manchester United are 5th on the ladder and with Chelsea having a tough fixture, the Red Devils will know that they can end the weekend in 4th place.
On the other side of the coin, Fulham have continued their struggle as they lost to Crystal Palace in their last game. It was a disappointing performance by the Cottagers as they had no shots on target in the entire 90 minutes. Fulham’s defence has been their biggest weakness this season and that was evident in the last match as Crystal Palace had far too many scoring opportunities. Fulham are 19th on the ladder and 7 points away behind the team in 18th. It seems unlikely Fulham will survive this season and it is hard to see the team turning things around in this game.
Manchester United and Fulham met earlier in the season at Old Trafford. In that match, Fulham were beaten badly as Manchester United won 4-1.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester United to win this match. Fulham are in awful form and their defence looks too weak to cause Manchester United any problems. The Red Devils are playing incredible football since the arrival of their new manager and I see that form continuing in this match.
