Fulham v Man Utd - Squad News

last updated Friday 28th December 2001, 9:37 AM
Fulham Boss Jean Tigana is likely to make just one change to the side that drew 0-0 with Charlton on Christmas Day for the game against Manchester United.

Fulham midfielder Lee Clark limped off after ten minutes of that game and is a major doubt for Sunday's game. Luis Boa Morte will retain his place dispite the controversy surrounding him and how referees are treating him.

Long term injury Steve Marlet played 50 mins in a reserve game on Thursday afternoon but it is thought unlikely that he will figure in the United game and will remain a spectator along with Chris Coleman.

Fulham (from):

Edwin van der Sar(G),

Steve Finnan(D), Andy Melville(D), Alain Goma(D), Rufus Brevett(D),

Sylvain Legwinski(M), Sean Davis(M), John Collins(M), Steed Malbranque(A/M),

Louis Saha(A), Bazza Hayles(A),

Maik Taylor(G), Zak Knight(D), Abdeslam Ouaddou(D), Andrejs Stolcers(A), Bjarne Goldbaek(M), Luis Boa Morte(A/M).

Manchester United

United came through the Boxing Day match against Everton without any new injuries.

David Beckham will be hoping to start Sunday's clash, with Fulham, after his pivotal role in the Everton game. However Alex Ferguson has already hinted he is reluctant to change a winning side and that will mean Beckham could remain on the subs bench.

Ryan Giggs started his first game since mid-November in the Everton game, scoreing the first goal and providing the second for Ruud van Nistelrooy. He is likely to keep his place in the team and Paul Scholes should also start now that his ban is completed.

Manchester United (from):

Fabien Barthez(G);

Phil Neville(D), Gary Neville(D), Laurent Blanc(D), Mikael Silvestre(D);

Paul Scholes(M), David Beckham(M), Roy Keane(M), Juan Veron(M), Ryan Giggs(M);

Ruud Van Nistelrooy(A), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer(A).
