Thanks to Peter Crouch and Stoke at the weekend, Manchester United now have an opportunity to go 3 points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Alex Ferguson will also see this as a great game to get a few goals in, right now they trail City in the goal difference department by 4 goals and this could well be crucial yet by the end of the season.
United have already thrashed Fulham by a 0-5 scoreline at Craven Cottage this season and are on great form currently winning 8 of their last 9 League games and drawing the other away to Chelsea.
At Old Trafford they have won 4 on the bounce and have kept clean sheets in 3 of these games too. As well as there excellent defending recently in the League, they have been in amazing goal scoring form. They smashed 5 past Wolves last time out and overall have scored an amazing 73 goals in just 29 games!
Fulham on the other hand have been terrible on the road this season.
Their home form has been very strong in general but they just cannot turn the same kind of performance in away from home.
From their 14 away games this season they have managed to win just twice and have scored a measly 8 goals. When you compare this to the 29 they have scored at home, its easy to see where they are most threatening.
Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers have both put 3 past Fulham in recent times whilst playing at home and Manchester United tonight can at least match that.
Nani is still out but Welbeck has been getting a chance to fill in, Rooney and Hernadez are both on good form with the former scoring twice in the game against Wolves and Valencia has been wreaking havoc on the wing.
Fulham have not managed to score a single goal at Old Trafford in any of their last 4 visits and everything points to the same again tonight.
There are several bets that interest me tonight but the one that I am going for is for Manchester United to win with a -2 Asian Handicap which is available at odds of 2.2 with Paddy Power. This way if Manchester United just fall short by a one goal from their target of winning by 3 and end up winning the game by 2 goals, we will at least have our stakes refunded but I am pretty confident we will see a comfortable home win tonight and you may want to consider United winning by a 3-0 scoreline 8.8@ Betdaq and 4-0 odds of 13@Ladbrokes.
