Fulham vs Manchester United: Mark Lawrenson gives his prediction

The BBC’s Mark Lawrenson has shared his thoughts on Manchester United’s upcoming fixture against Fulham on Wednesday.

The Red Devils will be keen to stay top of the league, after earning a point against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.

And the pundit believes that Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be better than they were against the Reds, as he backs Bruno Fernandes and the defence to put in a good shift.

He said ahead of the game, “Manchester United have been like a machine on the road this season, with seven wins and two draws from nine games.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Liverpool that he was disappointed with a point but that goes down as a good result for them.

“Bruno Fernandes will have to be a lot more influential here, but surely he cannot play as poorly again as he did at the weekend – and their defence is looking pretty solid in any case, which is a big plus for them.”

Lawrenson’s final prediction: 0-2 to Man United
