Manchester United vs Fulham

, KO: 15:00 Feb 24, 2024, Old Trafford
Fulham

MANCHESTER UNITED will look to continue building momentum when they face Fulham at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Erik ten Hag’s team have triumphed in each of their last four top-flight matches, most recently battling to a 2-1 win away at Luton.

The run of results has seen the Red Devils enter the top-four conversation, with United now just five points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa.

Seeking to continue their charge towards Champions League qualification, Man United will look to file another three points when they host Fulham this weekend.

Marco Silva’s 12th placed side are pretty much in no man's land at the moment, as they currently hold a nine point buffer over the bottom three, while a European berth is probably out of reach.

The 12th-placed Cottagers make the trip north off the back of a 2-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa last Saturday.

Outright Betting

Manchester United are odds-on 4/7 favourites with Ladbrokes to secure what would be a fifth Premier League win in succession.

Fulham fell to defeat in the reverse fixture and the bookmakers’ odds suggest they will suffer the same fate here, with an away trading at 5/1 (Betfred) while the draw has been chalked up at a best price of 7/2 (Unibet).

Betting Angles

With Manchester United too skinny to attack at the above-mentioned price, I’ll head to the Bet Builder and bundle up a home win and Harrison Reed to commit a foul at 19/20 on PaddyPower.

As already alluded to, Erik ten Hag’s hosts appear to be building some momentum in their pursuit of a top four place and a home game with Fulham represents a good opportunity to extend their winning sequence.

Three of the Red Devils’ last four Premier League victories have come against sides housed above Fulham in the league table, not to mention the Cottagers have claimed top honours from just two of their last nine top-flight outings.

It’s also worth pointing out that Marco Silva’s men have won just one of their 12 Premier League road games this season so far, which doesn’t augur well ahead of this weekend’s trip to Old Trafford.

I’ll therefore back United to put another three points on the board on Saturday, but to boost the odds, I’ll also back Fulham’s Harrison Reed to commit a foul.

With fellow midfield destroyer Joao Palhinha suspended for this clash, the aforementioned  Reed should get run out from the off on Saturday.

Whilst the tough-tackling Fulham midfielder is averaging 0.8 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season, he has only stared 10 times, not to mention he has racked up five fouls across his last two appearances.

After bagging a brace away at Luton last time out, the 10/11 (PaddyPower) on Rasmus Højlund to Score or Assist also looks too big to ignore.

The Danish forward has hit a purple patch in front of goal, having netted seven times across his last six appearances, and he will fancy his chances of adding to that tally against a Fulham side with just one clean sheet to their name in their last 11 top-flight road matches.

This match between Manchester United and Fulham will be played on Feb 24, 2024 and kick off at 15:00. Check below for our tipsters best Manchester United vs Fulham prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
