Hull City must have really thought they were going to get a shock result against Manchester United, but instead Steve Bruce remains without a win against his former club. Perhaps they scored the two goals too early, or maybe they would have done better to just get the one goal. In the end, they played well for the most part, but fell apart defensively.
With only 39% of the possession they had 17 shots, but only five of those were on target. At the other end they did relatively well in only allowing four of 13 shots on target despite Manchester United having 61% possession. If they can continue to play well like they did on Thursday, they should have an excellent chance of a win over Fulham.
Fulham look a different team now that Martin Jol is no longer in charge. They have managed to increase their goals with eight in their last five matches including back to back games scoring twice. Defensively they are still lacking having kept just three clean sheets this season and just one on the road.
My prediction is a Hull City win. They have looked good in recent matches and do well with controlling the midfield in most games. Fulham have the individual talent to get a result, but will struggle against a Hull City defense that has done well considering the fact they have only just been promoted this season.
Betting Odds: Hull win: 2.10-2.15; Draw: 3.31-3.42; Fulham win: 3.56-4.01
Form: Hull (W, L, D, D, D, L) Fulham (L, L, W, L, L, W)
Prediction: Hull City 1 – 0 Fulham
