Our man-in-the-know is backing United to make a statement by beating Fulham by three goals or more at Old Trafford on Monday night, with Rooney getting on the score-sheet at least twice.
Wayne Rooney has been in prolific form this season, scoring an impressive 20 goals in 23 appearances. The 26-year-old has netted 10 times in as many games in all competitions, and he will be eager to emulate his team-mates’ goal-scoring feats against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend as the Red Devils continue their push for the title against Fulham. So, the Tipster reckons that 2/1 for Rooney to score two goals or more against Fulham is definitely worth a punt in this one.
Sir Alex Ferguson has almost a full squad to pick from, and traditionally United thrive under the pressure of a title run-in – highlighted by their 5-0 win at Wolves last weekend. Fulham haven’t picked up a point at Old Trafford since winning there in 2003, and United have won against them by at least a two-goal margin in the last six seasons. So, with all that in mind, The Tipster is confidently backing the Red Devils to win by three goals or more on Monday night at a more-than-tempting 7/4.
Clashes between Fulham and Manchester United have averaged over 3.6 goals in all competitions since 2005 – and the reverse fixture at Craven Cottage in December finished 5-0 in the Red Devils’ favour. With United in rampant form having put five past Wolves last weekend, the Tipster reckons over 3.5 goals at Old Trafford is a value bet at 11/8.
United have been winning at half-time and full-time in seven of their last nine league games. Need more convincing? Ferguson’s side have been winning at half-time and full-time in six of their last seven games against Fulham at Old Trafford. Needless to say, the Tipster is backing the same to happen on Monday night at 4/6.
Javier Hernández has scored 12 goals in all competitions in an injury-hit season for the Mexican striker. The 23-year-old has opened the scoring in seven of United’s games, and the Tipster’s audacious long-range effort for this edition is for Hernández to score first and the Red Devils to win at 7/2.
