Manchester United Look to Maintain Lead at Fulham

We have several fixtures to look forward to this week in the English Premier League including the match between Fulham and Manchester United at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night.

The hosts begins the weekend in 18th place on 12 points while the visitors are top of the table on 37 points.

Fulham come into the match following a narrow 1-0 defeat at home against Chelsea on the weekend. Fulham were giving the visitors a good run for their money but the red card to Antonee Robinson late in the first half changed the game.

Chelsea came out in the second half and applied all the pressure, eventually making the breakthrough in the 78th minute to win the match.

That result means Fulham have won only one of their last 8 games in all competitions and that came following extra time in the FA Cup at Queens Park Rangers. Fulham have failed to win any of their last 7 Premier League matches but they have lost only one of their 6 most recent league games.

Trends show Fulham have drawn 5 of their 6 matches in the Premier League, with 3 of those draws coming at home against Liverpool, Brighton, and Southampton.

Scoring goals remains a problem at home for Fulham this season and they have failed to score in their last 3 home Premier League games. However, they have been difficult to breakdown and Fulham have conceded only 2 goals in their last 4 home matches in the Premier League, keeping two clean sheets.

Manchester United travel south having picked up a point in a 0-0 draw at Liverpool on Sunday. The Red Devils will feel as though they should have taken maximum points having missed two great opportunities to score in the second half. That result means Manchester United are undefeated in their last 12 Premier League games, winning 9 and drawing 3.

Their away form has been excellent and Manchester United are undefeated in their last 16 matches in the Premier League. They have scored 2 or more goals in 12 of those 16 games and kept a clean sheet in each of their last 2 on the road.

Looking ahead to the team news and Fulham will be without the suspended full back Antonee Robinson. Bobby Reid also misses out due to suspension. Terence Kongolo, Mario Lemina, and Aleksandar Mitrovic are fitness doubts while Tom Cairney is injured.

Manchester United could freshen things up following the draw at Liverpool. Eric Bailly, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matić, and Mason Greenwood could all come into the starting XI having been on the bench at Anfield.

Fulham have shown a great deal of improvement in recent weeks and could make things difficult for Manchester United in this game. However, The Red Devils managed to breakdown Burnley last week and could come away with another narrow win, keeping a clean sheet in the process.
