Fulham and Manchester United face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at the Craven Cottage. When these two teams faced off in May 2021 the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
Fulham currently sits in 9th place in the standings, having picked up 19 points. Last Saturday against Manchester City, Fulham were competitive, but they gave up two goals and that led to the one-goal defeat. The last goal was given up in the 95th minute and that was a big disappointment after they looked like they might pick up a point. Fulham had 29 percent of the possession and two shots on target. Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored nine goals this season, but he is dealing with a foot injury and isn’t going to be able to go in this game. Kenny Tete and Harrison Reed are both dealing with suspension and won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Manchester United who sit in 5th place in the group having picked up 23 points. Last Sunday against Aston Villa, Manchester United really struggled. The defense gave up three goals, and that was the difference as they lost by two goals. The only goal that was scored for Manchester United was an own goal. Manchester United had 59 percent of the possession, but only three shots on target. On Thursday against Aston Villa, Manchester United looked better in the EFL Cup, scoring four goals on the way to the victory. There is hope that Cristiano Ronaldo and Antony are going to be available to play in this game, although it’s unclear if either will start.
Manchester United looked good against Aston Villa in the midweek, and they are going to build off that here. The heart and soul of the Fulham team is Mitrovic and not having him is a big loss for the squad. In this game, look for Manchester United to score at least two goals, and Fulham is going to have issues finding the back of the net. Back Manchester United on the money line to cash.
