Fulham v Man United: Can the Cottagers stun the leaders?


Bookmark and Share

In 2009, Fulham beat Manchester United in consecutive games for the first time ever. Since then though the Red Devils have only dropped two points from their past six league meetings against them, scoring 16 times in the process. Can Martin Jol's men get the better of the leaders this evening or will this be another three points for the men from Old Trafford?

Fulham got back to winning ways in midweek when they saw off West Ham United at the Cottage. It was their first win since New Year's Day and only their third in their past 10 league outings.

At the same time Manchester United were sweeping aside Southampton to record their eighth win in 10 and extend their unbeaten run to 12. With City drawing away at QPR, United moved back to seven points clear of the champions and many feel that tonight's game will be a formality for Fergie's men.

However, you can never write off Fulham, particularly at the Cottage. Former United striker Dimitar Berbatov will have something to prove to his old boss and you wouldn't count against him finding the back of the net.

United start as strong favourites with the bookies, but is that how our pundits see it?
