Manchester United v Fulham Preview, Premiership, Sunday 9th February 2014

“How the mighty have fallen”, a phrase that has been said to many a Manchester United fan this season after witnessing one of their worst ever season’s in the Premiership and with a side that struggle to win games any chance of being able to defend their Premiership Crown has surely gone, especially after their defeat last weekend against Stoke and a top four finish is also looking a tough ask now.

Fulham are destined for relegation at the moment as they currently occupy bottom position of the league table and with no sign of any revival with them having lost their last four games on the bounce, it really does look like Fulham will be leaving the Premiership come May.

Manchester United Team News:

Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand and Phil Jones will under take a late fitness test to see if they can be involved for this game, but Fellani, Anderson and Nani all remain unavailable due to respective injury problems.

The good news for United supporters is that both Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are both fit and are expected to lead the attack up front.

Fulham Team News:

Matthew Briggs is the only player unavailable for the visitors as he continues to recover from a hernia operation. Dimitar Berbatov has gone on loan to Monaco which is a bit strange considering Fulham need every decent player available to them if they are to somehow manage to avoid relegation this season.

Manchester United v Fulham Match Betting Odds Market

Manchester United are the clear odds on favourites to win this game on sunday afternoon with a current best price of just 2/9 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) which does look a bit short considering their home form this season.

The Draw is a result that is very rare when these two sides have met over the years and the current best price of 6/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) looks unlikely to attract any interest from the punters.

Fulham are in desperate trouble rooted at the foot of the Premiership table and a victory looks highly unlikely based on recent performances that has seen them lose their last five games in succession, so no real shock to see the online bookmakers offering up a huge price of 16/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) for them to cause what would be a massive shock if they did win this game on sunday afternoon.

Manchester United v Fulham Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Despite Manchester United having one of their worst season’s on record in the Premiership they should win this game in comfortable fashion come sunday afternoon and with the likes of Van Persie and Rooney leading the attack up front I am expecting the hosts’s to win this by at least a couple of clear goals come the full time whistle.

Fulham have been extremely poor of late and for me look likely to be on the end of a heavy defeat in this game and with their best players having been loaned out to other clubs they unfortuately look destined for relegation come May.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting this game to see at least 3 goals scored and with how bad Fulham have been recently I am expecting United to get all of them, so well worth taking a closer look at the Asian Handicap and Anytime Goalscorer’s betting markets here.
