Manchester United have a terrific record against Fulham and are a top priced 1.33 with Paddy Power to beat them at Old Trafford this weekend.

Sir Alex’s men got the new season off to a poor start when going down 1-0 to Everton at Goodison where the only real positive to be taken out of the game was an excellent performance by Shinji Kawaga.

Wayne Rooney put in what can only be described as a lacklustre display, while Robin van Persie surprisingly stated on the bench and only got a 20 minute run out.

Both will surely spearhead the attack from the off this time, and if history is anything to go by then they can fire United to victory.

United have won four and lost none of their last five Premier League games against Fulham, keeping clean sheets in all four victories.

The Cottagers have also lost on their last eight trips to Old Trafford in the league and failed to score in the last five in a row.

Those are compelling statistics which suggest that despite Fulham impressively winning their opening game 4-0, United should prove fare too strong and register a comfortable success.

Rooney has has scored four goals in his last three Premier League games against Fulham, and that makes him of serious interest at 1.91 with Betfred and Boylesports to score during the 90 minutes.

He can also be backed at 4.5 with Betfred to grab the opening goal of the game, a market in which he is slight second favourite behind Robin van Persie who is a best of 4.33 with bet365 and Boylesports.

Another bet that really makes appeal is for United to win this without reply.

The Red Devils have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine PL games at home and Fulham have only scored nine in their last 14 on the road.

That makes the 2.1 on offer with Paddy Power for them to win to nil look huge, especially when other firms go odds-on at 1.91.

United to win 3-0 or 4-0 is my idea of the outcome, and those scorelines can be backed at 9.5 and 14 with Paddy Power.
