Fulham v Man United Weather Forecast
There is about a 50% chance of rain for this game according to the latest weather forecast from the Met Office. We will get a clearer picture of the weather for this game as we get closer to Saturday.
Fulham v Man United Preview
Fulham have had mixed form in recent games with just one win in their last five league outings. That run of form leaves them 14th in the Premier League table going into Matchday 11.
With that said, the Cottagers will have gained confidence from their 1-1 draw away to Brighton last weekend. The Seagulls dominated possession 72% – 28% but Fulham grabbed a share of the spoils thanks to a second-half strike from Joao Palhinha.
Prior to the Brighton game, they made the short trip across to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on Spurs. Marco Silva’s side gave a good account of themselves in that match but were unable to get on the scoresheet against league-leading Tottenham.
Fulham’s last win came against relegation-bound (barring a miracle) Sheffield United. It took the Cottagers until the second half to break the deadlock but a commanding second half saw them earn a crucial three points in a 3-1 victory.
This team had a difficult run of opponents in October with games against Tottenham, Chelsea and Brighton. Despite that tough stretch they managed to be competitive in all those games. That suggests they can make life very difficult against a struggling Man United in this Saturday’s early Premier League game.

Man United’s Form
Man United have been trending in the right direction in the Premier League with 3 wins from their last 5 league outings.
Despite this, the mood is once again low at Old Trafford after another embarrassing defeat to Man City, this time 3-0. The nature of last weekend’s Manchester Derby loss has Erik ten Hag firmly back on the hot seat.
Before that Man City loss, a 1-0 victory over Copenhagen in the Champions League, thanks to a second-half Harry Maguire goal and last-gasp Andre Onana penalty save, meant spirits were high among the Man United faithful.
The Red Devils went into that game riding high off the back of a 2-1 win against Sheffield United and a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Brentford courtesy of a Scott McTominay stoppage time brace.
Based on recent performances from Man United and Fulham, this game will be a test for ten Hag’s side. If United don’t leave Craven Cottage with all three points then it feels like Erik ten Hag will have lost any goodwill he built up with the recent Champions League and Premier League resurgence.

This is a fixture that Man United have dominated in recent times. The last time that Fulham beat Man United was all the way back in 2009 when they won 3-0 at Craven Cottage.
Since that victory, Fulham have lost 14 games and drawn 3 against Man United.
Key Players To Watch
João Palhinha (Fulham)
Joao Palhinha has been the star of this Fulham team this season. The Portuguese midfielder has been in top form with his best performance of late coming in Fulham’s 1-1 draw with Brighton where he got the goal that secured a point for his team.
Palhinha’s link-up play is key to Fulham’s attack as he is averaging just under 60 touches per game. The 28-year-old is also happy to track back in defence with an average of 7.5 ball recoveries per game. This defensive work rate will be important on Saturday as Fulham will likely find themselves out of possession more often than not.
Bruno Fernandes (Man United)
The key to Man United’s success in attack is Bruno Fernandes, and he has been for some time now. The Portuguese midfielder is one of the most creative players in football with his ability to create chances right up there with the best of them.
Fernandes comes into this game after a frustrating day at the office against Man City where he struggled to unlock City’s defence in a game where United couldn’t get on the scoresheet.
The 29-year-old will be looking to prove a point in this game against Fulham and he should have more opportunities to do so with United likely to have the better of possession.
Fulham v Man United Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Fulham 0-1 Man United
I think Man United will do just enough to win this game although it should be a tightly contested affair. Historically Fulham have really struggled against the Red Devils as they are without a win in 17 games against United.
The Man City game was a setback for Man United but before that, they had been putting together a solid run of form. I expect them to return to that form with a narrow victory this Saturday at Craven Cottage.
Best Bet: Man United to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 @ 5/2
