Erik ten Hag's side head to London to play their final game before the World Cup and the Old Trafford team should be backed to claim a win

Both Fulham and Manchester United will look to get back into the win column after tough losses when they go head-to-head this Sunday, Nov. 13, at Craven Cottage.

Though Manchester United commanded most of the match against Aston Villa, they were unable to capitalize on their opportunities and couldn’t climb out of an early hole, losing 3-1. The one goal United scored came as an Aston Villa own goal in the first half.

Fulham had a much tougher pill to swallow, losing 2-1 to Manchester City in the final minute of added-on time.

Andreas Pereira scored a penalty in the 28th minute to tie the match, and the Cottagers were up a man for most of the match following a João Cancelo red card.

However, a mental lapse in added-on time allowed Erling Haaland to convert a penalty shot to give City the victory.

With this being the last EPL match before the World Cup break, will Manchester United or Fulham come out on top in this match?

Let’s look at current betting odds and get some best bets and predictions for this matchup.

  • Pereira’s goal against Manchester City was his second of the season. This will be his first match against his former club, having spent eight years there.

Fulham vs Manchester United Prediction

Fulham 1-2 Manchester United

Both sides are coming off tough losses, with Manchester United suffering a blowout and Fulham making a last-second mistake. However, the Red Devils are the much better team overall and should get the victory on the road.

Though Fulham are tied for sixth in the Premier League in goals with 23, they are also tied for fourth with the most goals allowed this season with 24. And they couldn’t get much going when City had 10 men on the field.

Expect Manchester United to get a bounce-back win in this one heading into the break.

WAGER: 1 Unit

Aside from their loss to Aston Villa, Manchester United have been playing well up until this point.

Since losing to Manchester City after the international break and including Europa League matches, United are 7-2-1, including three straight matches before the loss to Aston Villa. They have six clean sheets in that span.

The Red Devils will get the victory in this match, but Fulham will find a way to make it suspenseful by putting one in the back of the net.
