United favourites at Craven Cottage

United are a top priced 1.65 with bet365 to win their away game at Fulham and everything suggests they will do just that.

Sir Alex’s men have have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League away games (W8 D2 L1) and have won five and lost none of their last league matches against the Cottagers.

They also totally outplayed Fulham when beating them 4-1 in the FA Cup a week ago, and hammered them 5-0 in the corresponding fixture last season.

Wayne Rooney scored in the FA Cup win over them and he bagged a brace in the 2-1 win over Southampton in midweek to take his tally to four in four since he returned from injury.

He is a striker who goes on streaks and needs keeping onside when in-from, and the standout 2.38 with Boylesports about him scoring anytime looks an absolute steal as he has also scored four in his last four league appearances against Fulham.

Wazza can also be backed at a juicy looking 5.5 in the first goalscorer market with Boylesports and that looks better value than backing Robin van Persie at around the 3.75 mark.

I fully expect United to tear the Fulham defence apart, and it’s worth noting that the home side have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 games.

I think they will be quick out of the blocks and backing them at 2.5 with Blue Square in the HT/FT market looks a decent bet.

united to win to nil looks well worth considering at the 3.8 on offer with Coral, and I fancy them to win 4-0 or 5-0.

Those scorelines can be backed at a whopping 26 and 81 respectively with Blue Square.
