Fulham FC vs Manchester United FC preview - Lets

English Premier League

Saturday 9th February – 12:30

Manchester United look to extend their unbeaten run to nine league matches and keep pressure on the top four as they travel to London to take on struggling Fulham, who are sitting seven points from safety in nineteenth place.

Fulham Form

Fulham have struggled for form, with just one win and four defeats in their last five league games. A 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace last weekend, in what was essentially a relegation six-pointer, has left the Cottagers stranded perilously close to the foot of the table.

If they are going to get out of danger they will have to rely on their half decent form at home. They have picked up two wins and a draw in their last four in the league as hosts, including a superb 4-2 victory over Brighton at the end of January.

Last Six: LWLLLW

Manchester United Form

United are unbeaten in their last eight in the league, with seven wins and a draw since they last suffered defeat at Liverpool in mid-December.

This form includes four consecutive away wins, with a 1-0 victory at Leicester City at the weekend keeping them within touching distance of a top four place.

Last Six: WDWWWW

Head to Head

Fulham haven’t experienced a victory over Manchester United since December 2009, with the Red Devils winning nine of the eleven meetings since. These include the most recent meeting, which was a 4-1 United victory at Old Trafford in December.

Team News

Fulham are pretty much at full strength, with defender Alfie Mawson the only player currently on the treatment table. Manager Claudio Ranieri will be hoping to have Andre Schurrle available again after the German missed the defeat at Crystal Palace after suffering a knock in the previous match.

Marcos Rojo is the only player out for United, with Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba both returning last weekend. So it is expected to be the same starting eleven as in the recent victory at Leicester, although, both Martial and Romelu Lukaku will be pushing for a starting place.

Betting Odds for Fulham vs Manchester United
