Sports Mole previews Fulham's home clash with Manchester United on Saturday.

Fulham welcome Manchester United to Craven Cottage on Saturday having picked up their first Premier League win since New Year's Day on Wednesday night against West Ham United.

That win lifted the Whites to 12th, but they now face a different prospect entirely with league leaders United making their way to London.

United also won on Wednesday night to move seven points clear at the top, beating Southampton 2-1.

Martin Jol is likely to stick to a similar lineup that achieved success against West Ham, although Dimitar Berbatov could miss out with a hamstring injury. Bryan Ruiz could move from the wing to the number 10 slot, with Ashkan Dejagah coming into the XI.

United are likely to be much changed from the side that defeated Fulham 4-1 in the FA Cup last weekend, with Robin van Persie expected to continue to partner Wayne Rooney.
