Manchester United will continue their surge for a top-four spot when they welcome Fulham to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon (15:00).

  • Man Utd to win and over 2.5 goals @ 11/10
  • Scott McTominay to score anytime @ 5/2

Team News

United have been dealt a major injury blow concerning Luke Shaw, who is reportedly facing a few months on the sidelines after suffering a recurrence of a muscle injury in last weekend's win at Luton. Ten Hag has also confirmed that Rasmus Hojlund will miss two to three weeks after sustaining a muscle injury.

In addition, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Anthony Martial and Mason Mount all remain on the treatment table.

As for the visitors, Joao Paulinha will serve a two-match suspension after accumulating 10 yellow cards, and the Cottagers will also have to cope without Raul Jimenez, Kenny Tate and Armando Broja.

Match Odds

United are favourites to win on their home patch at 8/15, the draw is 10/3 and Fulham are 5/1 to claim a big away win.

Erik ten Hag's side won the reverse fixture 1-0 at Craven Cottage and a repeat of that scoreline can be backed at 15/2, while both teams to score is priced up at 8/13.

Man Utd to win and over 2.5 goals @ 11/10

Manchester United's current momentum should take them to a fifth-consecutive victory in the Premier League on Saturday.

Ten Hag's side are not always convincing, but they're unbeaten since losing to Nottingham Forest on December 30 and have propelled themselves back into the race for the Champions League places.

United tend to not dominate possession but in recent weeks their attack has started to click, especially on the counter, winning three of their last five home league games, all with over 2.5 goals.

On the other hand, Fulham have had a miserable time on the road of late, and they have the second-worst away record in the division, failing to win an away league game since August.

Scott McTominay to score anytime @ 5/2

With Rasmus Hojlund out injured on Saturday, United's goals will need to come from other areas of the pitch, and one reliable source this season has been that of Scott McTominay.

The Scotland international has scored eight goals across all competitions this term - with seven of those strikes coming in the Premier League - and with no traditional striker to call upon, Erik ten Hag may have to rely on McTominay to get his side on the scoresheet.

The 26-year-old scored a late winner at Villa Park recently, as well as a goal away at Molineux, so he's more than capable of adding to his goal tally here.
