Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Sunday’s football game between Fulham and Manchester United will bring down the curtain on day 16 of the new Premier League campaign. The Cottagers have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Leeds United on the road, sharing the spoils with Everton, while suffering an unlucky loss to ten-man Man City at the weekend. The good news for the hosts is that top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic is back from a minor injury, and we are positive that the Serbian striker will make life difficult for the opposition back-line.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Aston Villa, but seeing that Fulham are tough to beat in London, the share of spoils is on the horizon. As for the away team, all Dalot, Varane, and Williams miss out with injuries, but both Sancho and Antony should recover in time to face the Cottagers.
Highlighted Player (Issa Diop):
After spending two years at Balma SC, Issa Diop joined Toulouse football academy in 2006 and he was making progress year by year. The 194-cm-tall defender made seven appearances for Toulouse B in the 2014/2015 season and he made his Ligue 1 debut with les Pitchouns on November 28, 2015 against Nice.
Issa Diop, who was born in Toulouse on January 9, 1997, scored his first ever goal in the French top flight in a 3-0 win over Troyes in December, 2015. Diop is a youth international for France at various levels, but seeing that his father Labysse Diop is of Senegal descent, the Toulouse footballer could represent les Lions de la Teranga at senior level.
The Toulouse defender scored two goals for les Pitchouns in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign and he made no less than 30 appearances for the club in the process. Issa Diop has a contract with Toulouse which expires on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
