Fulham vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: 13 November 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
With just two matches left before the World Cup, Manchester United can secure a place in the top four of the Premier League if they win against the London club. The Red Devils have won their last five trips to the Cottage.
After a successful start to their Premier League career, promoted side Fulham are expected to be in the top half of the table when the season returns on December 26. They have already secured three home victories and are capable of climbing as high as sixth if they can continue to improve.
Fulham vs Manchester United Head to head :
- Manchester United have been the dominant force in the history of the matchup against Fulham.
- The Red Devils won 37, drew 12, and lost just 7 of the last 56 meetings with the Cottagers.
- At least three goals were scored in five of the previous six head to head clashes between these rivals.
Fulham vs Manchester United Prediction :
United is favored to win a game they haven’t dropped since 2009. Given that he has scored seven goals in his last seven Premier League games versus Fulham, Ronaldo could be especially motivated to demonstrate his health.
Even without the productive Mitrovic, Fulham only lost to Manchester City last time by a last-second Erling Haaland penalty. We’ll forecast a 1-1 draw in Ronaldo and Mitrovic’s hypothetical absence.
Fulham vs Manchester United Team news :
Fulham have been quite impressive this season after their return to the Premier League. If they improve their performance on the road, they can generally fight for Top 6 although it is highly unlikely. They are one of the highest-scoring teams this season with 23 goals in 14 games to date but their defense is one of the four weakest too. They have conceded 24 goals in the same 14 games.
Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Decordova-Reid, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Cairney, Palhinha; Wilson, Pereira, Willian; Vinicius
Man United :
You can never know what to expect from a Manchester United game due to the problems in the club. However, right now, the team seems like its in a good place. They are already improving towards the Ten Hag model and are becoming a possession-based team. We expect them to be much better as the season progresses but there is a huge current problem with injuries. Dalot and Varane are sure to miss this game while Antony, Ronaldo and Sancho are questionable.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Malacia, Lindelof, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes; Garnacho, Martial, Rashford
