What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Fulham
Manchester United registered a third successive Premier League stalemate after an entertaining 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
Basement-boys Fulham missed a chance to move out of the bottom three after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester, despite Aboubakar Kamara putting them in front.
The Red Devils are rated a cut above, but five of their six league wins have seen goals at each end, so we are going for a home victory and both teams to score at 33/20 as our opening Man Utd vs Fulham prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United saw their top-four aspirations suffer another setback after their winless run stretched to four games when held by Arsenal.
Neither Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger were involved in the fixture for the first time since 1986, although the former was in the stands at Old Trafford.
Anthony Martial levelled shortly after David De Gea’s uncharacteristic mistake saw Shkodran Mustafi open the scoring in the first half.
Jesse Lingard then secured a point just 75 seconds after a Marcos Rojo own-goal put Arsenal back into the lead.
Jose Mourinho said: “Maybe we feel frustrated with the result, we feel frustrated with some mistakes, we feel frustrated with some moments where a little bit more quality would be needed.
“But we have to be happy with the spirit, we have to be happy with the effort, the dynamic, the intensity.
“The team had a big soul. We scored four goals and we drew 2-2. Even in matches like this, where we play well, we always shoot ourselves.”
Only four of United’s 10 goals at home this season have arrived in the first half.
Looking at the Man Utd vs Fulham odds, that makes 31/10 for the Red Devils to prevail after being held at half-time a tempting option.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo, Dalot, Herrera, Matic, Darmian, Lingard, Martial, Rashford.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Claudio Ranieri was denied a memorable victory over former club Leicester in midweek, but his side still continued their steady improvement.
Kamara gave the Cottagers a deserved first-half lead, but James Maddison levelled for the Foxes with 16 minutes remaining.
It had been approaching two years since Ranieri was sacked by Leicester, where he is still fondly remembered for overseeing the club’s and his greatest personal success.
Ranieri said: “It was a very emotional match for me with both the Leicester fans and Fulham fans singing my name. But the emotion is just at the beginning. When the game started, I was concentrating on my team.
“The draw is right. One point is better than nothing. We continue to progress. I’m very happy with our performance.
“We made some mistakes, but even the big teams make mistakes. At this moment, when we make mistakes, the big opponents score goals. But soon we will win a game.”
The Cottagers have picked up just one point from eight road games this term, but they have netted on their last three trips to Old Trafford, so 31/20 they score exactly one goal completes our Man Utd vs Fulham betting tips.
Last Fulham line-up: Sergio Rico, Christie, Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand, Chambers, Seri, Kamara, Vietto, Sessegnon, Mitrovic.
