Fulham vs Manchester United | EPL 22-23 | Matchday 16
We often ask ourselves, what does a team need to win the Premier League? All the teams that compete here already have a reputation. But will they all bring the grit, determination, and teamwork needed to perform consistently game after game? Many big-name teams have failed over the last few seasons, showing that a top performance has nothing to do with past results and everything to do with day-after-day consistency. In Fulham vs Manchester United, we will see a big-name club just finding its feet and another just starting to make a name for itself in the EPL. So who will win?
Craven Cottage Stadium Will Host Fulham vs Manchester United
Fulham Aims for a Win That Will Take Them Closer to the Top Spots
We have seen Fulham have a few good matchdays. But, of course, the club is not at the top, where better performing teams are neck and neck in contention for the top places.
But their role in the middle of the table, of not giving up and wanting to climb higher, is to be admired.
This season, they’ve had three wins, two draws, and four defeats on their ninth matchday. This could have looked better, but it was enough to place them in ninth place on the table, a rather difficult position to achieve, considering the level of all the clubs in the Premiership.
There are many games left to play, and many things can happen. As such, it will be necessary in Fulham vs Manchester United that they manage to keep the points at home.
For Manchester United, Proving That They Still Have Greatness Is a Priority Task
The Manchester United journey has been full of ups and downs. There is a whole controversy with the club’s performance, and they are seemingly stuck in the eye of a hurricane. Not only the squad in general but even their manager, who is barely giving minutes to former Madrid star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
It was Ronaldo himself who gave the Red Devils the victory in their match against Everton on matchday 10, a very important game that was setting the tone as to whether or not Erik ten Hag’s team still had life left to fight for. An attitude similar to that comeback should be what they take to the field in this Fulham vs Manchester United game.
