Man Utd vs Fulham - Premier League preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Rock-bottom Fulham visit Old Trafford to play Manchester United, with both sides having performed a long way below expectations this season.

Man Utd are having to recover from another Premier League defeat, which ensured that any lingering hopes they had of retaining their title are all but over. Not much went their way against Stoke City, but once again they struggled to create many clear-cut chances despite the best efforts of new record signing Juan Mata, and they even lost their shape in their frantic pursuit of an equaliser.

Head Coach Rene Meulensteen admitted that Fulham were in deep trouble after their embarrassing FA Cup exit at the hands of League One strugglers Sheffield United on Tuesday. That tepid performance summed up the lack of confidence the Cottagers have been showing in front of goal, and at present, their recent displays suggest that the prospect of relegation is becoming increasingly realistic.

Jonathan Evans and Phil Jones should be fit enough to play despite being forced off at Stoke. Rio Ferdinand could feature, while Nemanja Vidic returns from a three match ban.

Fulham have a near fully-fit squad, although Meulensteen is expected to make changes from the Sheffield United reverse. John Arne Riise is the Dutchman’s only injury concern.
