Manchester United are making the headlines for the wrong reasons as in front of goal, they are misfiring and are struggling to score goals.
Rashford, Martial, Ferndandes, Anthony and Hojlund are all out of form and this is a massive concern for the team as to where the goals are going to come from.
If it wasn’t for Scott McTominay’s brace against Brentford then they would be in bigger problems than they are now.
Three wins on the bounce with wins over Brentford, Sheffield United and Copenhagen should have given them a platform to go into the Manchester derby and give City a tough game, but after the first goal went in, Man United didn’t really trouble their rivals.
With doubts over the tactics being used by Ten Hag, plus the more attacking players struggling for goals, this is a huge concern.
However, they can return to winning ways against another side who are lacking goals in Fulham.
With Mitrovic departing to Saudi, Fulham are struggling for goals and for different reasons, this is a concern for them as they look to build on last season’s outstanding finish.
Marco Silva is doing a superb job at Fulham and it’s very likely they will stat in the Premier League this year as there are three worse teams than Fulham, but the football isn’t pretty and offensively, Fulham need to do more.
They have Paulinha in Centre Midfield, who once again is performing brilliantly. He is the engine room in the side and has already come up with a couple of crucial goals this season.
Fulham got well beat at home by Chelsea and if Manchester United can find some kind of form in front of goal, it could be a long afternoon for them, but with this Man United side, you never know which one will turn up.
So, if Fulham can dominate the midfield with Paulinha and then Willian and Reed enjoying good possession, they could look to cause another shock for Man United.

|Manchester United to win||Evens Bet365|
Manchester United need a reaction from their 3-0 loss to rivals Manchester City and Fulham can be the perfect answer to getting three points.
Fulham aren’t the same force as they were last season and with Mitrovic gone, they lack the fire power to hurt defences.
