Fulham (A) - No Fresh Injuries!

Fulham (A) - No Fresh Injuries!

United regained their form. Scoring ten in the last three games, earning three excellent results surely bodes well against a team that can't hold on to a lead to save their lives?

We have no fresh injury worries ahead of Fulham. Evra was substituted at Newcastle at half-time due to slight illness and Vidic had a minor calf problem but both are expected to feature but Giggs who had to sit out the 5-1 win at Newcastle might miss this game, too. Other than that, only the long-term absentees Gary Neville, Ben Foster and Mikael Silvestre are out.

Last season's corresponding fixture was a huge one: Fulham was full of attacking intent and made life very, very uncomfortable for us. They took the lead, largely down to Van der Sar's baffling decisions and we needed a spectacular finish from Giggs to level the scores.

The second half was played at breakneck speed with Fulham creating the better chances but eventually, Ronaldo's quality told as a wonderful run from the halfway line, coupled with a lucky deflection brought us three points - and pundits claimed that it would be a decisive moment.

It was, but tomorrow's game is unlikely to be so important - unless we can't win it. But given how poor are Fulham this season, it would be a massive disappointment. Ronaldo is one goal away from 30 and what better time to reach the landmark than against a team that can already boast 7 goals scored against them by the Portuguese (though I'm not sure if they really boast about it)?
