Both these side come into this fixture fresh from mid-week wins against West Ham and Southampton respectively, in a game that an old United player could play a pivotal role.
Craven Cottage isn’t the fortress that it was for Martin Jol’s men last season, this season at home they have W5 D3 L4 and in their last 6 reads W2 D2 L2. It would be fair to say they have been largely inconsistent and in all honesty they will have their work cut out to record two wins on the trot, the last time this happened was way back in September last year (3-0 WBA & 1-2 Wigan).
But the win on Wednesday night would have given the Cottagers a nice little boost ahead of this tricky fixture and a certain Mr Berbatov will want to continue his goal scoring run against his former employers and Coral’s 10/3 anytime certainly appeals.
Fulham – 21/4 Stan James
Draw – 3/1 Bet365
Man U – 13/20 Bet Victor
Fergie’s men scrapped through on Wednesday night against the Saints but not after old habits reared their heads again in the shape of conceding the first goal only for them to come back to inevitably win. WilliamHill are offering 18/5 that United will fall behind again and go on to win OR draw. Wayne Rooney was back on the score sheet against Southampton and he has 4 in 4 games and don’t be surprised if he adds to that tally here in this fixture. He’s 11/8 with BoyleSports to score anytime which looks generous given Fulham’s leaky defence has conceded in each of their last 6 home games and United have scored in 5/6 of their last away fixtures.
In conclusion I can’t see past a United win but if a certain Dimitar Berbatov turns up this match could be a cracker just like the last time they met at Old Trafford in August when United ended up 3-2 winners.
