Betting Tips for Today: Fulham should test Mourinho's Manchester United

With the hosts looking especially unsure at the back, our tipster expects Ranieri's side to contribute to a high-scoring clash at Old Trafford

Manchester United are red-hot favourites to get the better of Fulham on Saturday but it might not be straightforward for the hosts.

United are just 8/25 (1.32) with 888Sport but given they've won just six of 15 Premier League games this term, there are better options available to punters.

Fulham were pegged back by Leicester in a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage last time out. Despite that, new boss Claudio Ranieri will be pleased with what he's seen from his new side during two games in charge.

It's 17/2 (9.50) that they spring a shock at Old Trafford though, while the draw is 9/2 (5.50) with 888Sport.

The Cottagers have picked up just one point on the road this season but Ranieri’s appointment appears to have had some positive impact based on the limited evidence available to punters so far.

Goals look the way to go here as United's defensive flaws have been on show for all to see this term. 25 goals conceded thus far is unfamiliar territory for a team that have been used to pragmatic, staunch performances under their Portuguese manager. This season only five Premier League sides have conceded more than Mourinho's men.

Fulham are one of those and still have the worst back-line in the division, but they've looked lively enough going forward to contribute to a high-scoring clash.

Over 2.5 goals is just 13/25 (1.52) but both teams to score makes much more appeal at 41/50 (1.82) with 888Sport.

Two clean sheets all season for United in the top-flight suggests a Fulham side who - despite their lowly standing - have scored an average of a goal a game should create plenty of opportunities.

Leicester City, Wolves and Newcastle have all found a way through at Old Trafford and Fulham can do likewise.

Three of the hosts' last four league matches have seen over 3.5 goals and that's another option worth considering at 11/8 (2.38) given both sides look much more confident going forward than they do at the back.
