Man United v Fulham

premier-league-logoMan United v Fulham At Old Trafford, Manchester United will at 13:30 GMT welcome Fulham who currently is tenth in Barclays Premier League and has been during quite well this season, but against a Manchester United team who is looking to overtake Chelsea’s position as league leader again, they will be in for a tough match today.

Unlikely that Fullham will get any points

The defending champions are the overwhelming favorites to win this match at Old Trafford and the visitors are not likely to get any points with them back to London. Manchester United is 12-1-1 at home this season and comes with a great result against AC Milan in the Champions League. They looked really sharp against AC Milan, who was sent back to Italy with a 4-0 loose. Although the result was great, it was secured against a very weak looking Italian team that where missing key defenders in back and didn’t really look like they believed they could secure a win. Man U will have both Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic back in the defense for this match. They have been looking stronger for each game together this season, and Fulham will have a hard time scoring against them. In addition Man U has the hottest striker in the world at the moment, Wayne Rooney, whom has scored 30 goals this season so far. No one seems to be able to stop the young super star and he is likely to score again today.

Fulham has been doing well lately not loosing the last 10 games, if you do not count their 3-1 defeat against Juventus in the Europa League. They have had a tough program this year with Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup, and might be starting to feel the pressure from playing to many games. Fulham is 1-6-7 away and their captain is dubious for this match. It does not look promising for Fulham and they will be in for a very tough assignment today.

The big question

The main question is probably not whether Manchester United will win or not, but rather by how much. Fulham has not conceived many goals this season, looks very good in the back and in addition their goalkeeper Schwarzer was elected as the best player in Premier League in February. Players looking to bet on this match should consider betting on under 3 goals. Only one time this season has Fulham conceived 3 goals away and they generally play very defensive away from London. William Hill Sports is currently offering odds 2.25 for under 3 goals in the match, which is quite likely to happen. Manchester United will probably be happy with a small victory and is likely to save Rooney if ahead late in match.
