Fulham v Man United Tips: More Pogba magic at Craven Cottage?

| 08.02.2019

A resurgent Manchester United will be the last thing Fulham wanted this weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has racked up nine wins and a draw in his first 10 games as boss.

But what a time this would be for the Cottagers to bag a result. Victory could drag them within four points of safety, if results go their way this weekend.

Will the Red Devils do the business again, or can Claudio Ranieri’s men cause a stir.

Match Odds

It’s hard to look past the visitors here. Not only is form massively on their side, but United have also won eight of the last nine head-to-heads.

We go 6/10 for Solskjaer’s side to do the business. Meanwhile, it’s 3/1 for a share of the spoils and 17/4 for Fulham to grab a huge three points.

The hosts haven’t struggled to score, but keeping them out has been a constant problem. Fulham have conceded three or more goals in 11 of their 25 Prem games.

It’s 6/4 for Over 3.5 Goals in this clash. A United victory with Both Teams to Score is 2/1, while you can get a chunky 11/1 on the visitors coming away with a 3-1 win.

Talking Tactics

Fulham have gone 5-4-1 in their last five league games, with a wide pairing of attacking midfielders. That duo are likely to be January signing Ryan Babel and Andre Schurrle.

The feisty Aleksander Mitrovic is a no-brainer up front. He’s netted 40% of all their Prem goals this season!

In defence, loanee Tim Fosu-Mensah is ineligible against his parent club. That means it’s likely to be 90 minutes for his right-back rival Cyrus Christie.

United are purring at present, so chances are they’ll stick with the 4-4-2 diamond Solskjaer likes. Paul Pogba has been marauding forward from his spot on the left of that midfield four, so he could cause Fulham a ton of problems.

There seems little room for Romelu Lukaku in the new-look United. He’s started just one of the last eight league games, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial the go-to pairing.

Phil Jones has just signed a new contract with the club, and is set to partner the improving Victor Lindelof at centre-back.

Goalscorer Odds

Rashford has registered in eight of United’s last 13 games, closing out the scoring in five.

The local lad is 6/5 to net Anytime, while we go 4/1 he’s Last Goalscorer once again.

Paul Pogba has been similarly impressive, managing six goals in his last eight outings – including two braces. The Frenchman is 7/5 to score, and 5/1 to bag Two or More Goals.

Fulham’s best chance of a goal lies with Mitrovic. He’s 6/4 to find the net here.
