Man Utd vs Fulham – 6/5 great price on Red Devils clean sheet

| 08.04.2011

Manchester United’s odds may be short at 4/9 to beat Fulham, but there are many reasons why this may actually be a good price, particularly if included in an accumulator.

Match Odds

Sir Alex Ferguson’s team have run into form at ideal time of the season, winning their last five games in all competitions, and will now feel like they have one hand on the Premier League title after establishing a seven-point advantage.

Meanwhile, although Manchester United may have only won one of their four meetings with Fulham, they have won all of their last three at Old Trafford, all without conceding a goal.

Furthermore, Manchester United have not conceded in the first half of a domestic match for over a year and Fulham have only managed 13 away goals in the Premier League all season.

Therefore, the best bet of the game appears to be the 6/5 that Manchester United keep a clean sheet, while 6/4 is decent value that they win to nil.

Fulham have only won once away from home in the league all season, which is less than any other club, but the strength of their recent form does not leave them without a chance.

The Cottagers have lost just one of their last seven games and are 6/1 to beat Manchester United, with the draw priced at 10/3.

Fulham may also take confidence from the fact that Wayne Rooney is suspended, as he has the formidable record of scoring against them five times in four games at Old Trafford.

Dimitar Berbatov was left out for the Champions League win at Chelsea and Manchester United will be hoping that this decision will prove prudent.

Berbatov is 7/2 to score first against Fulham, while Nani is likely to start and looks better value in the same market at 5/1.

A £20 stake on Manchester United beating Fulham 2-0 would return £120. New customers can sign up here.
