Form guide: United go to Craven Cottage unbeaten in six games in all competitions, with last Saturday's stirring comeback at home to Stoke closing the gap to the top four in what is turning out to be an open race for the Premier League title. Fulham are having an unhappy time of it, losing away to high-flying Southampton in the league before crashing out of the Capital One Cup to Leicester City from the Championship in midweek. Their last home fixture resulted in their only win at the Cottage in the league so far this term when Darren Bent's goal was enough to see off Everton.
Ins and outs: David Moyes looks to have a welcome selection headache on his hands, with a full complement of players jostling for a place in his starting line-up. Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand appeared to come through the win over Norwich on Tuesday unscathed, but with an important Champions League tie looming next week, squad rotation may be the order of the day in west London. For Fulham, Hugo Rodallega limped out of the defeat to Leicester on Tuesday with a groin problem.
Betting: No surprises that United are firm favourites at 1.57 to win on Saturday with our betting partners bwin. The draw is 4.00 while victory for the home side is priced at 5.50. Shinji Kagawa scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win is a tasty-looking 34.00, but there are lots of great variations well worth a browse right now on the bwin website.
