Fulham, who earned promotion to the top tier of English football courtesy of winning the 2021-22 EFL Championship title, have been impressive in the 2022-23 Premier League season thus far and appear to have more than enough quality to make it back-to-back campaigns at this level of football. The Cottagers have recorded five wins and four draws in the league thus far. Marco Silva’s side’s last win came against Leeds United (3-2) in October, courtesy of goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic, Bobby Reid and Willian. After that, the Whites played out a goalless draw against Everton at home before losing to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Andreas Perreira canceled out Julian Alvarez’ opener before Erling Haaland netted a 95th-minute winner to hand Fulham their fifth league-defeat of the campaign.
Manchester United, on the other hand, saw a nine-game unbeaten run in all competitions come to an end last weekend, when they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League. However, Eric Ten Hag’s side were quick to respond as they thrashed Villa 4-2 in a Cup fixture four days later. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay found the back of the net for the Red Devils at Old Trafford. Ten Hag will now be desperate to sign off for the World Cup break with all three points, which would leave them in a strong position to challenge for the Champions League spot when the action resumes late in December.
