The Red Devils are hoping to return to the top of the Premier League with three points at Craven Cottage. Here is our Fulham vs Manchester United Preview for Wednesday’s clash.
Fulham Recent Form & Team News
Fulham’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea (Jan 16) left them four points from Premier League safety, which they had been inching towards after five consecutive draws. All eight competitive matches since Fulham’s last PL win have now featured under 2.5 goals (W1, D5, L2), and they’ve collected almost as many bookings (2.06 per PL game on average) as their league fixtures have produced goals (2.29 per game on average) so far!
Worryingly, the Cottagers haven’t scored in three home league games (D2, L1) although their last league strike here came against Liverpool, proving they can breach top-class defenses. However, they’ll continue to struggle if they don’t have an attacking platform, to which a league-low (ahead of the round) average of 3.56 corners earned per PL home game attests.
Player to watch: Ivan Cavaleiro was Fulham’s last scorer with both of his PL goals this term (W1, D1).
Scott Parker will be without Tom Cairney (knee), Terence Kongolo (knock), and Antonee Robinson (suspension). Mario Lemina (knock) is questionable to face Manchester United.
Manchester United Recent Form & Team News
Table-topping Manchester United’s 0-0 draw at title rivals Liverpool (Jan 17) maintained their two-point lead prior to this round, as they avoided defeat for a 12th successive Premier League fixture (W9, D3). Often growing into games, 61.76% of their league goals have come after HT, with ten (47.62%) of 21 strikes therein arriving after the 75th minute.
Enjoying their best unbeaten away league run since 1999 (W12, D4), the Red Devils have scored a mighty average of 2.44 goals per PL away game this term. Boasting the division’s best away record (W7, D2), seven matches therein featured over 3.5 goals – as have three of the last four PL H2Hs played anywhere (W3, D1).
Player to watch: Bruno Fernandes has netted five of his last six competitive goals after the 55th minute.
Hot stat: United have won all six away league fixtures this term in which they conceded first, rescuing more points (18) after letting in the opener than any other PL team.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot count on Phil Jones (knee), Marcos Rojo (calf), and Ben Williams (knock).
