Today's Top Two Tips for Fulham vs Man Utd
Manchester United travel down to the capital to face Fulham in the Premier League this weekend. The hosts could be without their star striker Mitrovic due to injury and that can only provide a boost to Ten hag's side. However, Fulham like to attack and this Man Utd defence has a tendency to crumble under pressure so it will be interesting to see how this match plays out.
Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score
We're expecting goals in this game for both teams as four of the last six meetings between Fulham and Man Utd have ended with both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals being produced. Four of Fulham's last six outings and each of Man Utd's last two fixtures have also witnessed at least three goals scored and have seen both teams get on the scoreboard.
Marcus Rashford to Score
Rashford top scores for Man Utd in the Premier League this season with 4-goals and the England international was in good form in midweek against Aston Villa in the League Cup. There is no doubt that a player of Rashford's ability should be scoring more goals each season but we're backing the 25-year-old to score against Fulham this weekend as he is in decent form right now with 3-goals in his last five appearances in all competitions.
Fulham vs Man Utd – Stats, Markets & Odds
Fulham aiming to close the gap on Man Utd to a single point
Fulham gave a good account of themselves away at Man City last time out even though the game ended in defeat. Alvarez put the home side in front after 16-minutes but a penalty from Pereira in the 28th-minute saw Fulham go in level at the break. As the second-half passed by it looked like the Londoners had done enough to earn a share of the spoils until deep into stoppage-time when City were awarded a penalty which Haaland converted to pinch all 3pts for the hosts.
Fulham Predicted Lineup: Leno, Ream, Mbabu, Diop, Robinson, Pereira, Palhinha, Cairney, Wilson, Willian & Vinícius
Man Utd made the trip to Villa Park last weekend where ten Hag's men were outplayed for the majority of the 90-minues. Villa went 2-0 up inside the opening 11-minutes and although an own goal from Ramsey got United back into the game right on the stroke of halftime, Villa scored a third goal early in the second forty-five which killed off any hopes of a comeback for the visitors.
Man Utd Predicted Lineup: de Gea, Lindelöf, Shaw, Maguire, Martínez, Eriksen, Casemiro, McTominay, Ronaldo, Rashford & Garnacho
Fulham: Manor Solomon, Neeskens Kebano and Aleksandar Mitrovic are the main injury concerns this weekend, while Harrison Reed and Kenny Tete are suspended.
Man Utd: Diogo Dalot is suspended, while Raphael Varane, Antony, Jadon Sancho, Brandon Williams and Axel Tuanzebe could miss the game through injury or illness.
