Team News

The Cottagers will be without Hugo Rodallega and Matthew Briggs for today’s tough home fixture. Influential defender Brede Hangeland remains doubtful. Manager Martin Jol is likely to stick with Darren Bent and Dimitar Berbatov up front, while Kacaniklic could be preferred in midfield over Bryan Ruiz.

Manchester United have Danny Welbeck and Darren Fletcher as the confirmed absentees. Marouane Fellaini is likely to start alongside Michael Carrick in midfield – replacing the equally unimpressive Tom Cleverley. Manager David Moyes must consider whether Javier Hernandez deserves a starting birth after his recent goal-scoring form.

Fulham are coming off the back a 4-3 defeat to Championship side Leicester City in the Capital One Cup. The side also lost to Southampton 2-0 prior to the cup game. Jol is under intense pressure as the London outfit are currently enduring a lukewarm start to the season.

Manchester United have started to enjoy an upturn in form, with victories against Stoke City & Norwich in the league and Capital One Cup respectively. They also boast a flawless recent record against Fulham – winning their last six meetings.

Likely lineups

  • Fulham (4-4-1-1): Stekelenburg, Riether, Senderos, Amorebieta, Richardson, Kasami, Parker, Sidwell, Kacaniklic, Berbatov, Bent
  • Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea, Rafael, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Carrick, Fellaini, Januzaj, Rooney, Nani, Van Persie
