Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between Fulham and Manchester United on Saturday.

Fulham host Manchester United on Saturday with both sides in need of the points to move up the Premier League table.

The Whites have won just one of three home league games so far this season and have lost two in a row in all competitions.

United have come in for criticism early in the season but their two most recent games have shown signs of improvement; they came from behind twice to beat Stoke City in the league before thrashing Norwich City 4-0 in the League Cup.

For Fulham Hugo Rodallega, who scored twice against Leicester City, is likely to miss out after coming off in the game while Brede Hangeland remains out.

United have Danny Welbeck pushing for a return, and there are likely to be a host of changes from both managers after resting names for their respective League Cup clashes.
