Fulham vs Man Utd: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Saturday, February 9th, 2019, @7:30
Craven Cottage Stadium
Time is running out for Claudio Ranieri to work his magic at Fulham as top four-chasing Manchester United come to the banks of the Thames.
Spending plenty of money is clearly no guarantee of success as Fulham are finding this season.
Despite spending over £100m in the summer, the Cottagers are deep in relegation mire and are understandably one of the relegation favourites with a number of top betting sites, sitting seven points adrift of safety.
To make matters worse for Claudio Ranieri, Manchester United interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it 10 games without defeat in all competitions at the weekend and the Old Trafford club are in the midst of a resurgence that it looks like Fulham are incapable of stopping.
Fulham’s big issue at Craven Cottage is conceding goals as the 23 they have let in at home is the joint-worst in the Premier League with Cardiff.
Manchester United have only conceded once in their last four away games in all competitions making a clean sheet a smart way to go with popular sportsbooks as the Red Devils look to make it 11 unbeaten under Solskjaerr.
Fulham’s inability to keep a clean sheet at home coupled with United’s relentless persistence under their new coach makes a United 2-0 win the only way to go as the Cottagers look set for an immediate return to the Championship.
- Manchester United to win to nil
The Red Devils have won their last three Premier League away games without conceding a single goal as well as winning their last five road games in all competitions. They’re 37/20 to win to nil with 10bet.
- Marcus Rashford to score anytime
The English hitman is enjoying life under Solskjaer, having netted in five of United’s last six Premier League games. He’s 6/5 at Unibet to score again here.

Head to Head
Fulham’s record against the Red Devils is poor.
The Old Trafford club thumped the Cottagers 4-1 back in December on home soil in the Premier League and have not lost a game to the Londoners since 2009.
United’s last trip to Craven Cottage saw them leave London with the three points in their back pocket thanks to a 3-1 win in November 2013.
Overall, Fulham have claimed just 14 wins over United with the Red devils winning a total of 50 games and 19 draws between them.
- Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic will be the highest scorer on the pitch with 10 goals compared to United’s top scorers Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford with nine.
- Manchester United have not lost a game in any competition since the middle of December.
- United have won their last five away games in a row in all competitions.
