Fulham’s recent record against the Red Devils has been terrible with the last victory happening way back in 2008. Since then, the fixture has largely been very one-sided irrespective of whether the game takes place at Old Trafford, Craven Cottage, or a neutral venue.

Last time out…

The recent game between Manchester United and Fulham took place at Old Trafford back in May. Fulham were able to silence the home crowd quite remarkably with a goal in the 19th minute through Kenny Tete. Bruno Fernandes was able to complete a comeback for his team in the second half after Jadon Sancho had pulled the Red Devils level on this course just before the break. This match ended up producing United’s third consecutive victory against Fulham in the Fulham v Man Utd recent stats.

Fulham vs Man Utd H2H: Potential MVP

Fulham have not witnessed a vintage Manchester United outfit this season. The Red Devils have been far from perfect but Bruno Fernandes has been one of the players carrying the club so far this season. The Portuguese international has come up with two goals and two assists in his 10 league appearances. He has also been able to average close to 3 shots per game with only Marcus Rashford averaging better numbers.

Fernandes has been able to offer energy throughout the pitch and the 29-year-old is looking to extend his wonderful record against the Cottagers. After failing to score in his first three games against Fulham, the midfielder has come up with three goals in his last two appearances. Fernandes is looking for his first goals at Craven Cottage, as per the Fulham v Man Utd football stats.

Fulham: Players in focus

Joao Palhinha offering the slightest offensive assistance

Joao Palhinha has been one of the few names to offer creative assistance for Fulham. He produced his best display of the campaign in the 1-1 draw with Brighton last weekend. Palhinha has two goals in his eight league appearances.

Antonee Robinson being a consistent performer

Antonee Robinson has been one of the highly rated defenders for Fulham this season. Featuring 2.6 tackles and 2.6 interceptions per game, the 26-year-old has produced a string of consistent displays.

Bernd Leno being a big solid presence

Despite having shipped 16 league goals, Fulham’s defensive record could be worse if not for Leno. The Fulham v Man Utd recent stats reveal that the German goalkeeper is fourth in the Premier League rankings for the campaign after managing 39 saves – just 11 less than Sheffield United’s Wes Foderingham.

Man Utd: Players in focus

Bruno Fernandes still dominating the numbers for United

Bruno Fernandes has been Manchester United’s best player this season. He has directly been involved in four goals scored by the Red Devils. Fernandes has also come up with three goals in his recent two appearances against Fulham.

Diogo Dalot – a model of consistency at the back

Diogo Dalot has been a model of consistency at the back for United. Even as the Red Devils have been unable to get more than one clean sheet in the last five matches in all competitions, Dalot has churned in decent performances. He played for only 45 minutes in the recent League Cup match.

Scott McTominay slowly finding favour

Scott McTominay has been an unlikely hero for Manchester United on a handful of occasions. The 26-year-old has been able to slowly force his way into selection after having three goals in his last four matches for United.

Final Prediction

Manchester United travel to Craven Cottage after back-to-back 3-0 defeats. The future of Erik ten Hag has been called into question, but United are expected to put behind these worries and pick up a victory. Fulham have been struggling going forward and they are unlikely to capitalise on United’s poor form.
