Manchester United v Fulham Match Preview & Trends

United aiming to bounce back after recent defeats

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be aiming to avoid 3 home defeats in a week as Manchester United prepare to host relegated Fulham on Tuesday evening. After coming up short against both Leicester and Liverpool, The Red Devils need to up their game or risk losing both second place and both confidence and momentum ahead of the Europa League final in Gdansk. Scott Parker faces an uphill battle to prove he is the man to lead Fulham’s attempt to return to the Premier League at the first attempt. Could a victory at Old Trafford convince owner Tony Khan not to look elsewhere?

Manchester Utd have scored in each of their last 12 home matches and there has been 3 or more goals scored in each of their last 5 games. In fact, there have been 3 or more goals scored in total in each of Man Utd’s last 4 fixtures at Old Trafford and a first half goal scored in each of United’s last 5 games in a row.
