The final FA Cup quarter-finals round off at Old Trafford on Sunday, as Fulham head north to meet Manchester United. The Red Devils are chasing a treble this season having already bagged the Carabao Cup.
The Cottagers will be tricky opponents for United, having thrived in the top flight since winning promotion last term. However, they’ve struggled to beat the top six so far and could struggle in this visit to Old Trafford.
Manchester United vs Fulham Ultimate Bet Builder
Manchester United -1
The hosts come into this clash having gone unbeaten in their last 21 home games, winning 18 of those. That includes three 3-1 victories at home in this competition so far, so expect the hosts to rack up another comfortable win.
Fulham have lost all eight of their meetings with the top five so far this season, while they’ve conceded three times in each of their last two games. Back the Cottagers to struggle in this trip.
Marcus Rashford to score anytime
Rashford has been a key part of United’s brilliant form in 2023 and he scored home and away against Real Betis in the Europa League. His goal on Thursday was his 19th strike since the World Cup and the winger should make that 20 in this clash.
Given the Cottagers’ recent struggles in defence, look to Rashford to find the net having scored seven times across his nine cup appearances this term.
Joao Palhinha to be carded
Fulham struggled without Palhinha in their last couple of games but the midfielder returns from suspension in this trip. The former Sporting player has been a key part of the Cottagers’ great season, but he has struggled to stay out of the referee’s notebook.
Palhinha has been booked 10 times for Fulham so far this season, while he’s picked up eight bookings across his last eight appearances for the Cottagers. With an in-form United side up next, expect Palhinha to pick up another caution.
Tyrell Malacia to be carded
Malacia has been a solid understudy to Luke Shaw this term, but he’s prone to fouls. The Dutchman averaged 2.5 fouls per game in the League Cup this term and he’s picked up six bookings across all competitions.
He should be pushed on the wing by Bobby De Cordova-Reid and his record this season suggests he’s good value for a card in this clash.
