Fulham vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Manchester United overtook Arsenal in fifth place of the Premier League standings and came just two points short of fourth-placed Chelsea. This is all thanks to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s magnificent run of nine wins and a draw in ten matches in charge.
The Norwegian manager will have a great chance to see this phenomenal streak continued on Saturday afternoon when the Red Devils travel to the capital to face relegation strugglers Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Red Devils survived a stern Leicester City test via Marcus Rashford early 9th-minute goals which made all the difference between the two teams six days ago at King Power Stadium.
Solskjaer was happy to see his side keeping a clean sheet and recovering defensively after shipping two goals in the previous home fixture against Burnley (a hardly-fought 2-2 draw at Old Trafford).
Fulham vs Manchester United: Head-to-head
Manchester United were the dominant force in the history of this match-up.
The Red Devils won eight and drew one of last nine meetings with Fulham.
The streak includes a demolishing 4-1 victory when teams locked horns in mid-December at Old Trafford.
Fulham vs Manchester United: Prediction
Fulham saw a glimmer of hope when they came back from behind to see off Brighton & Hove Albion 4-2 in the previous home outing. However, their ambitions of saving a top flight status suffered another massive blow last weekend when the Cottagers fell 2-0 away at Crystal Palace.
It was team’s fifth loss in last five games in all competitions, each of which saw Claudio Ranieri’s men concede at least two goals. Fulham have by far the weakest defensive record in the league with 55 goals allowed in 25 games so far.
Manchester United definitely have the firepower to exploit all these holes in Fulham’s back line. The visitors are massive favourites and we would be very surprised to see anything else but a comprehensive Man Utd win here as the outcome.
