Manchester United will be looking to safeguard their position at the top of the Premier League table when they travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham on Wednesday.
Having won 12 and lost none of their last 16 league fixtures on the road, they are clear 8/15 (1.53) favourites with bet365 to keep up the pace with a victory in west London.
Scott Parker’s men fell to their first defeat in seven fixtures at home to Chelsea last time out, but can be backed at 5/1 (6.00) to bounce back with a shock win here.
Each of those six unbeaten matches prior to the Chelsea game had resulted in draws after 90 minutes, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on them playing out yet another stalemate in this one.
Antonee Robinson is suspended after being sent off against Chelsea, while Terence Kongolo is ruled out and Mario Lemina, Tom Cairney, and Aleksandar Mitrovicare all doubtful.
The visitors have no injury concerns to contend with, although couold offer the likes of Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata or Mason Greenwood a start in a rotated line-up.
Although perhaps slightly regretful not to make more of a couple of presentable late chances and take all three points at Anfield, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can be satisfied at keeping their rivals at arm’s length with the draw.
Most pleasing will have been another resolute defensive display that saw them pick up a third clean sheet in four league games – a run that has seen them concede only once.
They will be confident of extending that record against a Cottagers team that has sacrificed attacking output for defensive resilience recently, conceding just four goals in seven but scoring only three within normal time.
Considering their attacking options and excellent away record, odds of 13/8 (2.63) seem generous on United overcoming Fulham’s resistance to win while keeping yet another clean sheet.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
