The Red Devils look to be hitting some fine form at the right time of the season as they still have a chance of a successful treble winning season. With the seven point lead at the top of the Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side will look to increase that lead as Arsenal play on Sunday.
But with the 2nd leg of the Champions League game next week, Fergie could look to rest some players for the Chelsea game. They will be without Wayne Rooney whose hat-trick at West Ham has wrapped up some impressive form of late, but his swearing tirade at the live television cameras has resulted in a two-game ban.
With the likes of Dimitar Berbatov to come into his place, United will still be close to full strength against ex-United player Mark Hughes’ Fulham side.

The Cottagers killed off Blackpool 3-0 last weekend and Hughes will look to get one over his old boss at Old Trafford and secure their Premier League status once and for all. However, with Fulham only winning 1 game away from home all season, three points are probably not going to come at Old Trafford.
Whilst Fulham will be fitter having not played in mid-week, United should still prove to be the stronger side, but without the in-form Rooney pulling the strings, it might not be as convincing.
Match Prediction: Man United 1-0 Fulham
