Premier League Preview: Manchester United v Fulham

Manchester United will attempt to reinvigorate their dwindling hopes of UEFA Champions League qualification at home to Fulham on Sunday.

The reigning champions lost their eighth game in the Premier League this term at Stoke City last Saturday, with Mark Hughes' side claiming a superb 2-1 triumph.

David Moyes' men currently sit seventh in the table and their latest setback leaves them trailing fourth-placed Liverpool by seven points with 14 top-flight matches remaining.

In the latest development of an eventful for season at helm for Moyes, Nemanja Vidic this week revealed he will leave the club at the end of the season.

Vidic returns from suspension this weekend as United strive to avoid a defeat that would equal the most games they have lost in a single Premier League campaign, and leave their hopes of qualifying for Europe's elite competition via league position in further doubt.

History suggests United will claim three points at Old Trafford. They have registered nine straight league victories over the Londoners on home soil.

Indeed, the only time Fulham have left Old Trafford with a maximum haul in the Premier League came in a 3-1 triumph in October 2003, with Lee Clark, Steed Malbranque and Junichi Inamoto scoring on that occasion.

United forward Wayne Rooney has enjoyed playing Fulham in the past, with five goals in his last six games across all competitions against the Craven Cottage outfit.

Strike partner Robin van Persie will also be confident of scoring, the Dutchman has six goals in his last seven Premier League outings, including two from two since his return from a month-long lay-off with a groin injury.

United will be without Jonny Evans (calf), Marouane Fellaini (groin) and Nani (hamstring), but Phil Jones (concussion) could feature.

The fixture marks a return to Old Trafford for Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen, with the Dutchman enjoying spells as part of Alex Ferguson's coaching staff.

But he returns to Manchester with his side in awful form that has seen the side slip to the foot of the Premier League.

Fulham have lost four consecutive top-flight matches including a comprehensive 3-0 setback to Southampton at Craven Cottage in their last league outing.

Morale was further hindered following a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United in an FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday, with Shaun Miller grabbing the winner in the last minute of extra time.

Club record signing Konstantinos Mitroglou could make his Fulham debut at Old Trafford after being ineligible to face Southampton and Sheffield United.

Defender John Heitinga is also in contention to make his bow following his move from Everton.
