United head to Craven Cottage on the back of Wednesday's hard-fought 2-1 win over Southampton while Fulham are buoyed by a midweek win over West Ham, making this Barclays Premier League encounter an intriguing fixture with the business end of the season looming.
"Fulham got a fantastic result midweek and we hope we can navigate this trip. We're at the stage where every result is important," the boss told reporters.
"Wednesday was important for us and we really dug in defensively. We blocked shots and cleared headers. I was impressed with that but we were a bit lucky to win the game. The first half, we could have been five up at half-time, but a one-goal lead isn't enough."
