Fulham vs Manchester Utd Predictions and Betting Tips
⚽ EPL Round 2 Match Preview
⏰ 4 November 2023 - 22:30 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Fulham boss Marco Silva celebrated a new contract with a solid 1-1 draw away at Brighton, but he'll be desperate for his side to find some consistency. The Cottagers have had a different result in each of their Premier League games this season, including just one win in their last five (D2, L2). They remain closer to the top seven than the bottom three on points though.
Scoring goals has been Fulham's main issue, with only 9 goals so far - one of the lowest totals in the league. Replacing Aleksandar Mitrović was always going to be tough, but despite that, Fulham have remained hard to beat at home for lower-ranked sides. Five of their last seven league losses at Craven Cottage were against 'big six' teams, including a 2-1 defeat to this weekend's opponents Manchester United last season.
If United can deepen Fulham's scoring woes, it would be a much needed boost for under-fire boss Erik ten Hag, who insists his team is "on the way up" despite a 3-0 derby thrashing by City which made it five losses in ten games this season (W5). It's never far from turmoil at Old Trafford though, and their 3-0 midweek cup loss to Newcastle marked the first time since October 1962 that United have lost consecutive home games by three goals or more. That's five competitive home defeats already this season, not seen since 1930/31, adding to the gloom over the club.
United have won their last two league away matches at least, but haven't managed three on the trot since December 2020. Their recent dominance of Fulham should offer hope though - they haven't lost to the Cottagers in almost 14 years (W14, D3), including six straight wins at Craven Cottage. A trip to West London could be just what Ten Hag's side needs.
📋 Players to watch:
- Fulham winger Willian was at the heart of their meetings with United last season, grabbing an assist and a red card.
- United's misfiring forwards may look to youngster Alejandro Garnacho for a spark after his 93rd-minute winner here last campaign.
⚡ Match Facts:
- Both teams have led at half-time just once in ten league games this season - their respective first-half records of W1, D4, L5 are the joint-worst in the Premier League.
- United are unbeaten in their last 14 matches against Fulham across all competitions (W12, D2).
- Fulham have scored just 9 goals in their 10 Premier League games this season.
- United have lost 5 of their first 10 competitive home matches this season.
- Fulham have drawn their last two Premier League home matches 1-1.
- United have won their last two Premier League away matches.
💡 Match Prediction:
Manchester United to win. United have a strong historical advantage over Fulham, having not lost in their last 14 meetings across all competitions. Their away form has also been decent lately with 2 straight Premier League wins on the road.
Manchester United to win 2-0. United have kept clean sheets in 5 of their last 7 matches against Fulham. With Fulham struggling in attack this season, I expect United's quality to ultimately shine through with a 2-0 victory.
Under 2.5 goals. Four of the last five meetings between these teams have produced under 2.5 goals. With both teams lacking attacking fluency this season, another low-scoring encounter is likely.
