The Premier League resumes this weekend with another exciting round of matches, as Fulham and Manchester United face off at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
The home side, currently sitting in ninth place in the league table, have been putting in impressive performances this season, despite suffering a narrow defeat to Manchester City last week. They will be looking to bounce back and secure a positive result against Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United.
The Red Devils are starting to find their feet under Ten Hag and currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League standings. They secured a convincing 4-2 victory over Aston Villa in their last game and will be hoping to replicate that success against Fulham.
Manchester United have a strong record against Fulham, having won 52 out of the 86 matches played between the two sides, compared to Fulham’s 14 victories.
Manchester United have won their last five Premier League away games against Fulham, which is more victories than they had managed in the 10 such matches preceding this run.
They have also lost only one of their last 18 matches against newly-promoted sides in the Premier League. However, Fulham have been performing well at Craven Cottage this season, winning three of their seven Premier League games played there.
The match promises to be an intriguing battle, with both sides eager to secure a positive result. Manchester United have improved under Ten Hag and have some excellent players in their ranks, but Fulham have exceeded expectations this season and are more than capable of pulling off an upset. It will be interesting to see how the match unfolds and which team will come out on top.
it was Alejandro Garnacho who emerged as the hero for Manchester United, scoring a late injury-time winner to secure a 2-1 victory over Fulham. Christian Eriksen had opened the scoring for United with his first goal for the club, before Daniel James equalised in the second half against his former team.
