Manchester United 2-0 Fulham Highlights

With the title looming Manchester United will now welcome Fulham to Old Trafford as they bid to put another three points on the board and move a step closer to becoming champions. Last weekend proved to be a good one for Manchester United with all their title rivals slipping up while they secured a vital win. Those challenging United for the title will be hoping that Fulham do them a favour here but not many would bet against Manchester United winning this

After being 2-0 down to West Ham last week at Upton Park, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney finished off a profanity-laden hat-trick that lasted all of fifteen minutes. This put West Ham away for good. Chicharito added a fourth to close out the Hammers 4-2 to cap a brilliant United comeback. The club from the red half of Manchester continues to sit pretty at the top of the Premier League as Arsenal is trying to cut into United’s seven point lead.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Old Trafford was just last season, in March 2010, with Manchester United running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Premier League match.

The only injury concern for the away side is Damien Duff who has been suffering with an achilles problem. He is still expected to play a part against Manchester United but it shouldn’t come as a surprise if he starts from the Fulham bench.
