United should frank the form.

Fulham v Man United 5.30pm Saturday, live on ESPN AN under-strength United side strolled to a 4-1 win over Fulham in their FA Cup tie at Old Trafford so it's fair to expect a full-strength Red Devils team to frank the form at Craven Cottage.

Fulham are a more difficult proposition at home and five of their players will have fond memories of a 3-0 win oS ver United in December 2009.

Both teams are in action in midweek and Fulham will be hoping for an improved performance at home to West Ham to lift spirits ahead of arguably their toughest home match of the season.

But the mental baggage of their fifth successive defeat to United is going to be hard to shift, leaving them at the mercy of a side which will be determined to maintain the high standards they have set for most of the season.

Complacency is occasionally a problem for United but, after throwing away an eight-point lead last season, they are unlikely to get too far ahead of themselves.
