Man Utd v Fulham

Man Utd head in to their game against Fulham without the in form Wayne Rooney due to a suspension which has been well publicised during the week.

This is a game where no less than 3 points will do for United who look to take one more step towards their 19th league title. The earlier meeting between these sides at Craven Cottage saw United take the lead twice thanks to Paul Scholes and an o.g before Fulham equalized in the last minute of normal time.

Rio Ferdinand returned to the side in the win over Chelsea on Tuesday night but Rafael was injured so will be unavailable for this tie. Wes Brown, John O’Shea and Anderson all returned to training during the week and could feature but Darren Fletcher is still injured.

Paul Scholes also returns from his domestic suspension and he should resume his position in centre midfield after sitting out the midweek game. Michael Owen may also feature having returned from injury a few weeks back but seeing no game time. Hernandez could be rested ahead of the second leg of the Champions League game with Chelsea.

Manchester United have had an excellent run of games against Fulham at home beating them in the last 6 occasions and scoring 18 goals along the way.

As I said previously anything less than 3 points is detrimental to our hopes of winning back the title. Fulham always make it difficult for any team but I can see United winning this comfortably despite the loss of Wayne Rooney.

My prediction is 3-1 United with Michael Owen to get one.

Predicted Line Up:

Van der Sar, Fabio, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Nani, Scholes, Carrick, Park, Berbatov, Owen

What score do you think it will be?
