Sterling has scored in two of his three appearances this season and has the tendency to shine when playing in front of the City faithful.
The winger produced 10 points in the Gameweek 4 win over Newcastle United to continue his fine home record from last season.
Sterling tallied six sets of double-figure points returns at the Etihad Stadium.
Fulham rank second-worst for shots on target conceded, with 28, and are one of only five sides yet to earn a clean sheet this season.
Luke Shaw (£5.1m) has been one of the most-sold players for Gameweek 5, but the 9.1 per cent of managers still owning him could be wise to hold on.
Shaw has recovered from the head injury sustained with England, United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed.
The defender has started each of his side’s first four Gameweeks, so even if he misses the trip to Watford as a precaution, it may pay off to keep him.
That's because United have an excellent schedule from Gameweek 6 onwards.
Four of their five opponents between Gameweeks 6-10 score just two in the Fixture Difficulty Ranking (FDR).
