Date/Time: Saturday 9th February 2019 (Kick-off 1:30 PM CET).
The Premier League weekend gets underway from Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon and this is a big game for both Fulham and Manchester United as they bid to achieve their goals for the season.
We are almost getting to the last chance saloon for Fulham who have found themselves 7 points behind Burnley outside of the bottom three and with games running out. Home form is crucial for Fulham's chances of escaping the drop, but the fans remain optimistic that they can produce a miracle like they did under Roy Hodgson back in the 2007/08 season.
However it is not easy to see how that happens when you consider the amount of goals Fulham have been conceding. Confidence is clearly sapped and the 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace means they have conceded at least twice in 6 straight games in all competitions including the last 3 at Craven Cottage.
Now they face a Manchester United team who have been flying in recent weeks and managed to close to just 2 points off the Champions League spots under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. At times they have managed to ride their luck, especially in the away wins at Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City, but confidence is a crucial part of any team and this Manchester United squad believe they are going to win games no matter what happens in the course of ninety minutes.
There may be changes to the Manchester United starting eleven to freshen things up, but it is hard to see them slipping up here. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be reminding his players what can happen in the Premier League and the lessons learnt from the 2-2 home draw with Burnley could be very important to make sure complacency does not set in here.
Bigger fixtures are coming up for Manchester United, but they can stay on track for their top four places and I think they can win a game featuring two or more goals on Saturday in West London.
Prediction: Manchester United win & Over 1.5 Goals
