MANCHESTER United have secured their Champions League spot so with the FA Cup final looming, what will Erik ten Hag do against Fulham on Sunday?
Manchester United vs Fulham odds
Here are the latest match odds for Manchester United vs Fulham.
Manchester United vs Fulham betting preview
With Manchester United’s place in next season’s Champions League secured with a game to spare, little will be on the line at Old Trafford on Sunday.
However, that doesn’t mean punting opportunities aren’t available.
Key to the approach will be considering the team Erik ten Hag will field – this game comes less than 72 hours after the 4-1 win over Chelsea and just six days before an FA Cup final with neighbours City in which not only will a trophy be on the line but United’s position as England’s only Treble winners.
The indications from the Dutchman immediately after the Chelsea victory were that he would be going strong as he spoke of the need to “stay in rhythm” and also mentioned his desire to clinch third place and preserve the Red Devils’ impressive home record which has brought 14 wins and just one defeat.
It’s certainly a game where the team news will be worth checking prior to kick-off.
However, working on the assumption that there won’t be wholesale changes by the hosts, United look likely to win – Fulham have struggled away to the elite (see below), although they should still offer a threat.
Chelsea managed to trouble United on Thursday but lacked quality in both boxes.
The United/both teams to score bet landed in that one and that is arguably the best option to get some juice out of the home side.
The final day often brings more expansive football, especially in games like these when nothing is at stake so that looks the way to go.

Manchester United vs Fulham best bets
Man Utd to win and both teams to score
Admittedly, the United ‘win to nil’ bet has landed a lot at Old Trafford this season (nine times) but with nothing riding on this, a more open game can be expected with United looking to put on a show for their fans.
This bet landed on Thursday thanks to a late Chelsea goal, although the visitors could well have scored earlier having created some decent chances. It also delivered in the sides’ FA Cup tie in March.
Fulham arrive having scored nine goals in their last three games and with Aleksandar Mitrovic having netted three times in two post-suspension appearances.
They’ve offered a threat to opposing defences all season and while United should make their class tell, Fulham can get on the scoresheet.

Both teams to receive a card
The final day can often be a time for low-carding games given the meaningless nature of some games.
Yet old habits also die hard and here we’ve got two of the bottom five in the fair-play table, plus one of the highest-carding referees in Robert Jones – he’s averaging 4.16 per game putting him fourth in the list of those refs who have taken charge of at least three Premier League matches this season.
United have had a card in 10 of their last 11, while it’s 19 of the last 25 for Fulham.
Back both teams to receive a card at 8/11 at bet365
Casemiro anytime scorer
Casemiro highlighted just what an excellent signing he’s been for United in Thursday’s win over Chelsea, finding the net for the second game in a row.
He’s now scored six goals in 20 domestic starts in 2023, a statistic which makes 4/1 anytime scorer quotes look rather big.
As already suggested, this could be an open game and with Erik ten Hag seemingly intent on getting most of his FA Cup final on the field, United may well be able to notch a few more here, with Casemiro ready to get in on the act again.
Back Casemiro to score at any time at 4/1 at William Hill
