Fulham vs Man Utd betting
Man United were briefly back on the top of the Premier League following their victory over QPR on Sunday. With City going back to first after winning their enthralling encounter against Arsenal, can United keep up their pressure, or will Fulham’s resilient home form put a dent into Sir Alex Ferguson’s title chances?
Fulham – PL Form: DDWLW
Saturday’s comfortable victory over Bolton saw Fulham continue their improving form after a torrid start to the season. Fulham’s home form has been inconsistent. Their fans have seen them comfortably beat QPR and Liverpool, draw against Man City but drop points to Everton, Tottenham and Blackburn. Fulham’s recent head-to-head record against United is very promising, having not lost to Ferguson’s side in their last 3 meetings at Craven Cottage (W2, D1).
Clint Dempsey has been in great form for Fulham this season, but has never scored against Man United. The best odds available for the American to break his duck and score in the game are 3/1 from bet365.
In Fulham’s fixtures there has been 14 goals scored in the first half and 22 in the second half. You can get odds of 6/5 from Coral for there to be more goals scored in the second half at Craven Cottage.
Man United – PL Form: WDWWW
Man Utd remain unbeaten away from home in the Premier League. In their 8 away matches, they have conceded just 3 goals, keeping 5 clean sheets. You can get odds of 5/4 from bet365 for an away clean sheet in this game.
Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney both have 5 goals away from home in the Premier League this season. For Rooney to score first you can get odds of 4/1 from both Totesport and Betfred. If you fancy Hernandez to score last, you can get odds of 4/1 from William Hill, Boylesports and SkyBet.
Match Prediction: 2-2 Draw – 16/1 Victor Chandler
Fulham are improving and have had some impressive results at home this season. They followed their impressive draw against Man City with a victory over Liverpool and have enjoyed excellent results in recent meetings between the two sides in action on Wednesday. You can get odds of 14/5 for a draw from Victor Chandler, but the previous meetings have seen many goals so a 2-2 draw could be on the cards for a second season running.
