Saturday’s early Premier League kick off presents Manchester United a chance to make amends for their disappointing run of form when they take on Fulham at the Craven Cottage.
Following another 3-0 defeat in midweek in the EFL Cup after losing the Manchester Derby to City, United face Fulham who booked a place in the quarterfinal of the Cup competition with a convincing 3-1 victory over Ipswich Town.
Ten Hag’s men haven’t lost to Fulham since 2009 and the opportunity lies with the Cottagers to make a difference after the Red Devils suffered their first back-to-back defeat at home by at least three goals since 1962.
Fulham have one of the worst attacking returns with only Sheffield United creating fewer chances this campaign than Marco Silva’s side.
Despite their poor attacking numbers, Fulham are still expected to be a concern for the Red Devils who have had their own share of sluggish performances this season.
Fulham lie in 14th place, only three points behind United who have five wins and five losses in the league. United’s last two games are a cause for concern but there is optimism they could get back on track on Saturday.
United remain unbeaten to Fulham in their last five games with a draw and fours wins in that period.
The fixture is scheduled for a 12:30 p.m. kickoff.
