Manchester United host rock bottom Fulham on Sunday at Old Trafford, which must be said, should be a routine outing for the Red Devils. David Moyes’ men come into the clash at the back of a shocking 1-2 reversal at the hands of Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium last week, but know that any further hiccup could seriously derail their ambition to nick a Champions League spot. Fulham, however travel to the Theatre of Dreams carrying a wretched record of conceding the most goals in England’s top flight football. The Cottagers will have to play out of their skins to get anything of this encounter, lest they will be buried within the first half itself. United should look to win convincingly in order to regain their lost panache of steamrolling past teams at will and send their strongest eleven out on park.
So what should be the line up for David Moyes? We here at Soccersouls have the answer for our readers.
David De Gea should look to muster a clean sheet against a side who just have one goal scorer in their ranks, Steve Sidwell. United have won each of their last nine home league matches against the Cottagers and must look to maintain the record or else bear the ignominy of disdain. Fulham carry very little goal threat which would suit De Gea to notch up a much needed clean sheet at home in front of the vociferous Red Devils faithful.
