Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United earned a 2-2 home draw against Arsenal in midweek. Twice the Red Devils had to fight back from behind to get that result. That is three drawn matches in a row for United in the league, the last two being 2-2 draws. They are winless in four league outings (D3 L1). Overall this season at home in the league United are W3 D3 L1. They have drawn their last two at Old Trafford (Crystal Palace v Arsenal). In their seven home games, United have come up with just the ten goals. Still, 71% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have conceded 70% of their goals at home in the second half of games.

There has been just one home clean sheet from Manchester United this season. Both teams have scored in 71% of fixtures at Old Trafford in the EPL this term. 70% of the home goals they have conceded have been after the halftime break. United have scored first in just three of their home fixtures this season. The Devils have conceded the first goal in four of their last five league games now. They have also shipped at least two goals in their last two outings as well. Just to sum up their defensive difficulties, only the current bottom five have conceded more goals than United have done this term.

Fulham News and Form

The Cottagers picked up point in a 1-1 home draw with Leicester in midweek. Since Claudio Ranieri came in to replace Slavisa Jokanovic, the Cottagers are W1 D1 L1 with all the points in that sequence having been earned at home. Fulham are still looking for their first away win of this season in the top flight having gone D1 L7. They suffered a 2-0 loss at Chelsea in their last away game in a West London derby last weekend. They have lost all five game away against sides currently in the top six. In total, they have only come up with five away goals.

They have conceded 20 goals in eight league away games, an average of 2.5 goals per game against them. 62% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season, but there has been a shift because each of their last three away games have ended under the 2.5 goal line. Both teams have scored in just 38% of Fulham’s away games. The Cottagers have been trailing at the half time break in all but three of their eight away games this season. They are still on the hunt for their first clean sheet of the season (home and away combined). The Cottagers have the joint-worst away record this season in the top- flight. No team has conceded more league goals than Fulham have this season.

Who will win – Manchester United v Fulham Predictions

It is hard to have a lot of confidence in Man Utd taking a clean sheet. So the most sensible option that we can see is Manchester United to win & both teams to score. That fits nicely with the Red Devils who are still looking unconvincing.

Manchester United v Fulham Prediction 9th February 2014

Manchester United

Man Utd v Fulham Betting Preview
Well this should be a game that the Red Devils can’t screw up. Another defeat last time out in the league saw the reigning champions falter for the eighth time in the top flight this season, as they were humbled by Stoke. But with Fulham bottom of the league and in all sorts of problems, the Red Devils should be able to produce a convincing win here.

Man Utd v Fulham Betting Tips:
The Red Devils have hit a trend of winning one then losing one over their last six matches in the top flight. Wins over Norwich Swansea and Cardiff have been split by defeats against Spurs, Chelsea and Stoke. So unpredictable would be the word to describe David Moyes’s team at the moment. Even with Mata, Rooney and Van Persie in the side against Stoke last time out, they struggled for a foothold and fluency in the game. It’s strange seeing them struggle, but they should respond here and keep themselves in the hunt for a top four finish at best. United ran out 3-1 winners at Craven Cottage earlier in the season and you would expect them to triumph by around the same kind of margin in this one.

United players dominate the Anytime Goalscorer market, with the in-form Robin van Persie at 8/13, with Rooney at 4/5. RVP is probably top value at 2/1 in the First Goalscorer market in fact, as he scored six in his last seven league matches. As for Rooney, he has netted in five of Man Utd’s last six games against Fulham (in all competitions). So positives there and big one in the state which reads United have won each of their last nine home matches against Fulham in the top flight. Big margins there and it should lead to three points for them. As for Fulham, they have just about hit rock bottom. Sitting at the foot of the Premier League table, they were embarrassed at Craven Cottage in their FA Cup replay against Sheffield United who are a relegation threatened League One side. It’s not pretty reading for Fulham at all and new boss Rene Muelensteen must be regretting his decision to take over a bit.

The Whites have lost four in a row in the top flight and have returned just the one goal in those matches. There just hasn’t been any resiliency there from there and have actually lost thirteen of their last sixteen played in the top flight. Their defence has actually been worse under Muelensteen than it was under Martin Jol. They will probably throw their new signings into action for this one, but it still looks to be a lost cause. A defence that is wide open and nothing to offer in attack. Their last three games have been nil-nil at half time but have gone on to lose. That may not be a bad trend to ride in a Draw/Manchester United half time/full time bet for this one. Even with United’s frailties at the moment, it’s hard to see Fulham getting anything on the board in this one.

Prediction
Fulham have been bad this season and even their new signings probably won’t save them. This should be an easy match for the Red Devils and backing them To Win To Nil should be value at a price of 5/6 with Bet365. United have kept five clean sheets in their last six home games against the Whites.

Form (all competitions)
Man Utd LWLWWL, Fulham WLDLLL

Stat Attack
United have won their last nine home matches in the league against Fulham
Fulham have lost 13 of their last 16 league matches
United have five clean sheets in their last six home games against Fulham
Robin van Persie has six goals and two assists in his last seven EPL appearances

Manchester United v Fulham – Monday, 26th March 2012

Premiership Betting

Manchester United V Fulham

Manchester United Preview: Well the momentum has fully swung back in the favour of the Red Devils as they look to retain their league title. It is hard to look past experience in these situations and that is just what Manchester United have. They have run off five straight win sin the league now, and their home form remains pretty immense. They have won eleven drawn one and lost just two of their home matches this season, and not surprisingly they have managed at least a goal in every one of them. In fact United are averaging 2.78 goals per match at Old Trafford this season and they are on a streak of four straight wins in the league here. Three of those wins have come with clean sheets in tow as well, the only exception a 2-1 win over Liverpool. So not only have United been so powerful pushing forward, but they have not given too much away. 50% of their home games have produced clean sheets. Their rate of conceding goals at Old Trafford is just over one per game and that does not stand up against the rate how often they put the ball in the back of the net.

So, yes United are susceptible to conceding goals, but they have the power up front to compensate for lapses. United incidentally have not conceded a goal in the opening fifteen minutes of a match this season, and have only conceded two in the first thirty minutes all season. Pretty strong stats, and with them having opened the scoring in 80% of their games this season, you can see why visits to Old Trafford are so tough for opponents. So United are unbeaten in four now at Old Trafford, and Wayne Rooney has moved on to twenty league goals for the season. United should get Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley back into the line up in fixture which has been dominated by Manchester United, so three important points in the bag for the title charge looks on the cards for the Red Devils. Everything points to a comfortable home win for United on Monday.

Fulham Preview: Martin Jol hasn’t exactly pushed Fulham on from being the solid, hard to beat outfit that they were before he arrived. They are looking like a mid table team at best and really nothing more. The Craven Cottage outfit are heading to Old Trafford on the back to two straight league defeats, and they have fired blanks in both of those game. So not terrific form, but those two defeats did come on the back of three straight league wins where Fulham looked pretty decent. The arrival on the scene of Russian Pavel Pogrebnyak seemed to fire them into life, but they have quickly gone back into a bit of a lifeless slump.

Fulham have won just two away matches all season, and they have only managed eight goals on the road in total. That is just 0.57 goals per game outside of Craven Cottage, not the stats that suggests that they are going to cause United an upset. Fulham have only managed to come away from Old Trafford with points on one occasion in the last 49 years (a win in 2003). So history is firmly against them. Current form is firmly against them.

Odds: Manchester United , Draw 21/4, Fulham 14/1 at Bet Victor

Form (most recent result last): Man Utd WWWWW, Fulham WWWLL

Stat Attack:

  • Both United and Fulham are unbeaten this season after opening the scoring
  • United have picked up 25 points from the last 27 available
  • Man Utd lead the head to head 44 wins to 14 (with 18 draws)
  • United have won the last eight matches against Fulham at Old Trafford

Recommended Bet: This should pretty much be a banker on Monday night for Manchester United. No real reason why Manchester United can’t have a field day, so there is decent value in Man Utd -1.75 Asian Handicap for Evens at Bet Victor (which at least pays a half win on a two goal margin for United).

Manchester United V Fulham

 

 

Sunday 14th March – 13:30 GMT

TV Coverage: Sky Sports 1

 

 

Manchester United

 

League Position: 1st

Recent Form: WDLWW

  

We aren’t quite sure how the United ranks will be feeling after their emphatic and humiliating victory over one of Europe’s most prestigious clubs, AC Milan. Probably the same as before kick-off, just a run-of-the-mill win for Fergie as United go from strength to strength under the spearhead of arguably the greatest forward in the game at present in Wayne Rooney. While this is debatable, we think it’s not, although I’m going to be biased for England’s sake, but there is no doubting just how important Rooney has become to United, almost a one-man team dare I say it, and the lethal frontman, whom has now scored five in his last six competitive fixtures, could be the man who single handily decimates another team this Sunday, only this time an English one.

  

Revenge will be on the minds of the Red Devil’s this Sunday as lingering memories of their 3-0 humbling at Craven Cottage still hurt. United were made to look like right muppets that day, with Fulham turning the champions of England into an ordinary outfit within 90 minutes, but Alex Ferguson will pinpoint a reversal of fortunes on Sunday and who would back against them not only achieving that, but doing it with authority. After all, Man Utd have won the previous five encounters at Old Trafford with Fulham, so the omens are in their favour, not that they should need them. 

 

Whereas Fulham’s form is patchy, a compliment if you glance at their away form this season, United’s is near enough immaculate, at least at home anyway. In fourteen home fixtures thus far, United have lost only once, that famous 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa. While that bitter defeat didn’t go down too well with the locals at the time, United gave the response of true champions, not only winning their very next encounter at Old Trafford but going on to boast a 100% record there ever since, with United winning their last six home games. However, do you want to know what the scary part is? – United haven’t conceded a single goal during this sublime winning run of theirs, with the United goal not being breached in over 540 minutes of home action – Incredible!

  

United just look too strong on paper for us, on the pitch as well if they somehow replicate their performance at home to AC Milan last Tuesday in which they never looked like losing. There were a few glimmers of bad defending mind, although that was to be expected with Rio Ferdinand still gelling back into the United defence, but there were positives to take from that game, especially in the first 45 minutes, if you’re an opposing manager, more over a Mr. Roy Hodgeson or even a Mr. Rafael Benitez, whom takes his Liverpool side to Manchester next week. However, a home fixture with Fulham is the ideal time to iron out any exposed defensive flaws so by the time Liverpool pay them a visit, a team who beat them 4-1 at Old Trafford last season, United could be in immaculate form.

  

 

Fulham

 

League Position: 10th

Recent Form: WDWWD

  

While Fulham maybe enjoying their fair bit of success back at Craven Cottage, their away fortunes have taken a big hit ever since their opening day victory at Portsmouth. 15th August, 2009 the last time Fulham were seen winning an away encounter in the Premiership, although we had to double check as even we didn’t believe they had done so, nearly half-a-year ago and thirteen away games later without a win. It’s drastic form to say the least, atrocious if you like, so surely they are classed in the category of ’no-hopers’ this weekend as they travel up northwards to take on Manchester United at the Theatre of Dreams.

  

If it wasn’t for all these draws, six in all, Fulham’s away record for the season would be up there with the very worst in the league. Fortunately, though, their hard-working qualities has still got them through some sticky encounters, although these many draws do little to hide Fulham apparent away flaws, having lost exactly half of their away fixtures up until this point. They are, however, unbeaten in their last two after draws at Bolton and Sunderland, but the concern now is more about their luck in front of goal, or severe lack of it, with both those draws being 0-0 and Fulham now having gone 420 minutes without an away goal – Shocking stuff! 

 

I feel like a boxer in this moment in time, jabbing away at Fulham’s lack of credentials heading up to Old Trafford. However, I’m about to go for the killer blow and say Fulham won’t have a chance as they would need a side fit, fresh and raring to go just to stand a chance in Manchester – Something they won’t have the luxury of unfortunately. On Thursday night, Fulham will have been involved in some Europa League action, as to which we have no idea how they got on as this a Thursday morning we’re writing on, but we’ll give you a brief idea of how they’ll be feeling on Sunday – Groggy, perhaps a tad tetchy and blooming knackered after 90 minutes in Italy against a former Italian giant. Juventus.

  

If Fulham could somehow snatch a result in Turin then perhaps the confidence they would get from that would cancel out their lack of fitness, or at least sharpness. However, that’s still a pretty big ask, although not impossible by any stretch of the imagination, but the question still remains as to what shape Fulham will arrive back in England in. If it’s anything less than 100% conditioning then Roy Hodgeson has a problem as his Fulham players, for whatever reason, just don’t do away games.

 

 

  

Match Verdict: Manchester United to WIN – 1.25 Boylesports

 

While Fulham boast a 3-0 win back at Craven Cottage, United could quite easily reverse that scoreline and then some on Sunday as they are the in form team right now, as opposed to Fulham who are just plain awful on the road. We wouldn’t have a whole lot of confidence in some of England’s fines halting the United express at this moment in time after their euphoric victory over Milan in midweek, so we don’t rate Fulham’s chances of doing so in the slightest, and believe me, we so wanted to. Straightforward will probably ring around the pundit boards by the time MOTD2 arrives on our doorsteps at something like 22:20 on a Sunday night.
