Fulham are still in dire straights in the relegation zone, kicking things off on the weekend eight points from safety. That’s a tremendous amount of ground to make up and getting anything out of Manchester United may not be easy. The Red Devils got back to winning ways last weekend with a victory over Leicester. Read our Fulham v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 4/7
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
Fulham suffered a comprehensive 2-0 loss at Crystal Palace last time out and remain in heaps of trouble. That is four defeats in their last five games played now (W1). They have won two of their last three home games though, so that is positive. Those wins were over Huddersfield and Brighton. The Cottagers have a home record of W4 D3 L5 this season and none of the four wins in that sequence have been against any side in the top half of the table. Fulham are actually P8 L8 against sides currently in the top six this season (home and away).
Fulham have scored 17 home goals, conceding 23. A third of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. The Cottagers are on a four-match scoring streak at home, helping them to a W2 D1 L1 record in that sequence. So there has been an improvement from them. They only have one home clean sheet behind them this season. Fulham have the worst defensive record in this season’s top flight.
Fulham are winless in eleven matches against Man Utd (all competitions)
Five of the last six meeting have gone over 3.5 goals
United are on a three-match winning streak at Craven Cottage
Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings
Things are going swimmingly for Manchester United with a W7 D1 record in their last eight league games. The Red Devils picked up a hard-fought 1-0 win at Leicester last weekend. That was actually a big test of character for them. Each of their last three league victories have been by a one-goal margin only. United have taken a clean sheet in three of their last five games, each of those appearing in away fixtures.
Manchester United are on a four-match winning streak on their travels, with a clean sheet in each of their last three. Overall this season they have picked up a W7 D2 L4 record on their travels in the top flight. They are W3 D1 in their four away games played against current bottom six sides. Manchester United have scored in all thirteen away games this season and interestingly, of the goals they have conceded on their travels, 63% have been before the half time break.
Hard to see Fulham getting much change out of a confident Manchester United. The Red Devils look good value to collect a win. Fulham have to go for it so Man Utd to win & both teams to score.

Leicester will be pretty happy with their return from Wednesday night as they collected a point from a draw at Anfield. That was after having fallen behind early in the game as well. Next up for them is another tough fixture as they welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium. The Red Devils dropped league points for the first time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in midweek. Read our Leicester v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 5/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
A point away at league leaders Liverpool is what Leicester took on Wednesday night. Liverpool had been heavily backed to ease past them. That was an important point for Leicester as well because they had lost their previous two league games, so that stopped the rot. They do need to try and turn around their home form because they have lost their last two Premier League fixtures at the King Power stadium, suffering one-goal margin defeats against Cardiff and then Southampton.
Overall this season Leicester have won just four home fixtures (D2 L5). Can they improve upon that as they play host to Manchester United on the weekend? It is three defeats in their last four home games that Foxes have suffered, but the other game in that sequence saw them pull off a tremendous 2-1 victory over Manchester City.
Less than half of Leicester’s home games this season in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals, and that is because Leicester have been tight at the back. Only the current top four sides in the division have better defensive records in the top flight than Leicester do. Realistically their home form has been a bit of a disappointment this season overall. Of the goals which they have conceded at the King Power, 75% of them have happened in the first half of matches.
United were 2-1 winners at home against Leicester in August
The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last nine against Leicester in all competitions
Leicester are W1 D2 L1 in their last four home games against United
Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine EPL meetings
Manchester United saw their Premier League winning run come to an end on Tuesday night. They failed to make it seven in a row as they had to share the points with Burnley. It could have been a lot worse for the Red Devils as Burnley were 2-0 ahead with less than 5 mins on the clock at Old Trafford. But United managed to scrape out a couple of goals to get a point.
That means that they are unbeaten in seven, and they have lost just one of their last 12 EPL fixtures. While their winning streak at home came to an end, they are still on a three-match winning streak on their travels in the top flight currently. Overall this season Manchester United have a W6 D2 L4 away record.
The Red Devils have averaged just shy of two goals per away game this season and more than half of their road fixtures have finished over 3.5 goals. The last two wins at United have taken away from Old Trafford in the top flight have both been with a clean sheet as well. Those are two of just three clean sheets that Manchester United have earned on the road this term.
Both teams have scored in 75% Manchester United’s games away from Old Trafford. United have scored in all 12 away games this season, which has been a very good strong point for them. They have conceded 63% of their away goals in the second half of matches.
The Foxes are a team which blows hot and cold and they don’t offer a massive attacking threat. United look capable of handling themselves at the King Power in this one, but we would look at them to win & both teams to score.

Manchester United 2/9
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
The Red Devils collected a 2-1 home win over Brighton in their last League fixture. While they had to grind a little bit in that one, they got the points which moved them onto a six-match winning streak in the top flight. It also left them with a hugely positive W7 D3 L1 home record in the Premier League this season. The victory over Brighton was their fourth straight Premier League home win and they are now undefeated in their last nine at Old Trafford. United have scored at least two goals in each of their last four at home in the League.
The Red Devils have averaged just over two goals per game at home this season and 82% of fixtures at Old Trafford have ended over 2.5 goals. There has still been only the one clean sheet earned by United at home this season. Both teams have scored in 82% of fixtures at Old Trafford. United are on a 10 match scoring streak in the League, home and away combined. In seven of their 11 home games so far Manchester United have been winning at the half-time break. United have conceded 71% of home goals in the second half of fixtures.
The Red Devils took a 2-0 win at Turf Moor earlier in the season
United are unbeaten in their last eight EPL games against the Clarets
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings
Burnley have failed to score in five of their last seven against the Red Devils
Burnley are fighting tooth and nail to put some bigger distance between themselves and the relegation zone. They earned a point from a 0-0 draw at Watford in their last Premier League away game. That moves them onto a four-match undefeated streak of form in the top flight. Overall this season Burnley have just a W2 D3 L7 record away from Turf Moor in the EPL. Following a win over Huddersfield and then the draw at Watford, Burnley are undefeated in their last two away games. They had taken just one point from six road fixtures before that upturn in form.
Burnley have struggled in front of goal on their travels, totalling just the nine away goals all season. They have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per away game. 33% of the away games and they have been involved in have ended over 3.5 goals and at times their defence has been a shambles. To their credit though they have taken a clean sheet in a quarter of their road fixtures. Burnley have been level at the half-time break in eight of their 12 away games. They have conceded 64% of away goals in the second half of fixtures. Just once have they opened the scoring in an away game this term.
The Red Devils have everything working well for them at the moment and they should have the power to see off the Clarets at Old Trafford. It should be a comfortable and routine home win for them. They can earn it with a clean sheet too.

Manchester United 8/13
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 1:37 p.m.)
Cardiff went to Watford last weekend and suffered a narrow 3-2 loss. There was plenty of fight from the Welsh club again though. Back on home soil, they have been doing very well. They are W4 D1 L4 in South Wales this season in the Premier League and have won their last three home games on the bounce in the EPL. Cardiff are W4 L1 in their last five league home games and that could make them a threat to Manchester United in this afternoon kick off. Cardiff have come up with twelve goals in their home games this season, conceding fifteen.
67% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. There has been only the two home league clean sheets from Cardiff this season. There is a big half time trend in their home games. In seven of Cardiff’s nine home games, things have been level at the half time break. They have not drawn any of their last fourteen league games home and away combined. Despite the good home form, they have opened the scoring in just one of their nine home games. Only Burnley and Fulham have conceded more league goals than the Bluebirds
This is the first meeting since the 2013/14 EPL season
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last seven against Cardiff
The Red Devils have won three of their last four visits to Cardiff (D1)
Cardiff conceded exactly two goals in each of their previous EPL games against United
The Red Devils lost 3-1 at Liverpool last weekend and it was another costly defeat for boss Jose Mourinho. He was sacked on Tuesday after yet another mishap. The Red Devils have gone W3 D2 L4 away from home this season, going winless in their last three away from Old Trafford in the EPL (D1 L2). On their top-flight travels, this season Manchester United have posted 15 away goals, but have conceded eighteen. Only four teams have conceded more league goals than United have done this season. That will be four of the current bottom five in the standings.
United have scored in every away game in this season’s EPL so that is a definite positive for them. Knowing that a top-four finish is likely out of the question you could see them start to just play open football. Each of their last seven away games has seen over 2.5 goals. 89% of Manchester United’s EPL away fixtures this term have gone over 2.5 goals. The Red Devils have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last seven road games. United have conceded 61% of their away goals in the first half of matches. They have opened the scoring twice on their travels only and have been ahead at the half time break in just two of their road games this season.
Manchester United are a really unappealing odds-on favourite option in this one in the match outright. It’s hard to see the value there really. They are lacking confidence but have had a shake up. Because of that, they could still scrape over the line. Manchester United to win by a one-goal margin.

Manchester United 5/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 12th, 2018 at 10:03 p.m.)
Liverpool went to the top of the table last weekend with a 4-0 away win at Bournemouth and a loss for Man City at Chelsea. Liverpool are currently running on a five-match winning streak in the top flight and in that sequence of games have conceded just the one goal. Their home form at Anfield in the EPL this term is W6 D1 and after Man City’s loss last weekend, the Reds are the only remaining unbeaten side in this season’s top flight.
Liverpool have conceded just one goal in seven home games this term in a tremendous showing of defensive strengths. Going forward they have not been as prolific as they were last term but still have averaged just over two goals per game. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in five of their of their seven EPL fixtures. Liverpool are undefeated in 28 league home games now and have a clean sheet in 11 of their last 12 at Anfield in the EPL.
Mo Salah has scored in five of Liverpool’s seven league home games so has been pretty consistent there. He got a hattrick against Bournemouth last weekend. Less than half of Liverpool’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals and they have won 71% of home games to nil this season. The Reds have been leading at halftime and full time in all but two of their league home games this season. They have put together an eight-match scoring streak in the EPL.
The last two meetings at Anfield have ended in a 0-0 draw
Liverpool are winless in eight EPL games against United
The Reds are D2 L2 in their last four EPL home games against Man Utd
Just one of the last seven meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals

The victory for them saw them snap their four-match run without a win (D3 L1). The Red Devils have scored at least two goals in each of their last three games so do have that going for them. Their away record this season in the top flight is an unspectacular W3 D2 L3 and in those games, they have scored 14 and conceded 15. 88% of their away games in the EPL this term have gone over 2.5 goals
Actually, 62% of their away games have produced at least four goals which highlights their defensive woes. Manchester United have picked up only the one away win in their last five games (D2 L2) and overall home and away, are stuck no just two clean sheets all season long. Both teams have scored in 88% of Manchester United’s away games. The Red Devils have been losing at halftime in four of their eight away games. United have scored in all eight away games but have conceded in each of their last six on their travels.
* (betting odds taken on December 13th, 2018 at 5:59 pm)
Manchester United’s struggles have been well document and they don’t look a confident side. Liverpool are on a massive high at the moment and have more than enough about them to take down the visiting Red Devils. It’s worth a shot at Liverpool to win to nil.
