Manchester is well known up and down the country for it’s ever popular soap opera Coronation Street, however the goings-on at Old Trafford are just as entertaining and turbulent as those produced by any script writers. Indeed while there are cliff-hangers galore down on the cobbles, it’s difficult to know what will happen next at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ as United prepare to lock horns with Fulham in the next Red Devils instalment.
There’s little doubt that United have been far from their best this season and the latest trend for Jose Mourinho’s side has been to share the spoils in their games, their last three league outings ending in stalemate, the result of which is that United find themselves eighth in the Premier League table and battling it out with seven other clubs for a place in next season’s Europa League, realistically the best that the Red Devils will likely achieve this term.
United really need to start beating teams such as Fulham should they wish to aim for a Champions League berth and we envisage them returning to winning ways when the Cottagers visit Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Manchester United v Fulham.
Fulham are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table although they have shown signs of improvement under the guidance of Claudio Ranieri. Nevertheless their away form is a huge cause for concern with just a single point collected on their travels this season. As such we expect that even a struggling Manchester United should be more than capable of ensuring that Fulham’s points haul away from home isn’t added to this weekend, BetVictor Bookmakers going 29/20 on Manchester United to win-to-nil.
