Fulham Prediction

Although there hasn’t been the dramatic turnaround in Fulham’s results since the arrival of manager Ranieri, he’s undoubtedly made Fulham a tougher team to beat than under former boss Jokanovic as he’s guided Fulham to wins over Southampton 3-2, Huddersfield Town 1-0 and Brighton 4-2, the latter being a superb fightback as Fulham were 2-0 down.

Ranieri will be hoping that the recent win over Brighton will spur his side on against a much improved Manchester United outfit on Saturday, and although The Cottagers have lost four of their last five matches in the top flight overall, their form at Craven Cottage has certainly improved in recent weeks.

The hosts possess a home record of 4-3-5 17/23 but this hides the fact that Fulham have lost just twice in their last seven matches on home turf with only one of these losses seing them fail to cover the handicap (2-0 to West Ham).

Points against Leicester City and Wolves were decent draws, and the hosts have failed to cover the -1.25 asian line in just 4 of their 12 home matches to date.


Key-Facts – Fulham v Manchester United

  • Fulham have lost just 2 of their last 7 home matches under Ranieri
  • Manchester United have won their last 4 away matches on the trot
  • united have beaten the -1.25 asian line in just 3 of their 13 away matches


Manchester United Prediction

Manchester United occupy 5th place in the Premier League but more importantly, have re-discovered their mojo under caretaker-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is increasingly staking his claim to make the position a permanent one at Old Trafford.

United’s style of play seems to be just as important as the results as former manager Jose Mourinho found out to his cost as he’d made the Red Devils a tough team to beat but they lacked the attacking intent, particularly at Old Trafford where the ethos is ‘win at all costs’ which was in direct conflict with Mourinho’s mantle of ‘avoid defeat at all costs’.

The visitors have won eight of their last nine matches overall, while they’ve won their last four away matches on the trot at Cardiff City 5-1, Newcastle United 2-0 and 1-0 wins at Tottenham and Leicester City.

United possess an ever improving away record of 7-2-4 24/19 but they’ll be up against a stubborn Fulham outfit this Saturday who have tightened up at the back since Ranieri took over.

Betting Tips Verdict

The visitors have beaten the -1.25 asian handicap in just 3 of their 13 away matches so far this season, so backing the hosts in this situation looks the play here.
