Peter Crouch’s wonder goal for Stoke against Manchester City on Saturday saw Manchester United’s cross-town rivals drop more points in the title race.

A win at home to Fulham on Monday evening will take the Red Devils three points clear at the top of the table and heap further pressure on Roberto Mancini’s expensively-assembled squad. United are 2/9 (1.22) favourites with 188Bet.

If City fans are looking to Fulham for a helping hand, there isn’t much in the form guide to encourage them. No team has picked up fewer points on their travels in the Premier League this season and after a confident 5-0 thrashing of Wolves, Martin Jol’s side have lost their last two games in disappointing fashion against Aston Villa and Swansea.

Fulham are out at 14/1 (15.0) to cause a major upset at win at Old Trafford for those who believe they could take all three points. The draw is also available at a sizable 27/5 (6.4) with 188Bet.

In the goalscorer markets, Wayne Rooney is understandably the favourite to open the scoring.

Rooney is a short price at 5/2 (3.5) but this merely reflects the fact that the 26-year-old forward has in fact netted the first two goals in United’s last two Premier League matches at Old Trafford.

Pavel Pogrebnyak is Fulham’s best bet to grab the opener. He scored first in three consecutive games last month and is available at 12/1 (13.0) to do the same with 188Bet here. He might be of interest for those hunting the longer odds in the game.

The pick of the other markets provides the best Bet of the Day for this game. United have led at half-time in seven of their nine Premier League games in 2012 – going on to win all seven of them.

United are 3/5 (1.6) with 188Bet to lead at half-time and win the game and that looks to be a good price given what’s at stake for the home side.

For the value bet, it is worth considering that Dimitar Berbatov has scored United’s last goal in four of their previous 13 Premier League matches. Berbatov is an industry-best price of 5/1 (6.0) with 188Bet to round off the scoring here.

Given that United still have an inferior goal difference in the title race, they will be looking to take full advantage so expect them not to be content with a low-scoring victory and Berbatov looks a good bet to get his name on the scoresheet late on.
