Man Utd boss Ferguson: Fulham are flying

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson expects a major challenge today against Fulham.

While United suffered at Everton, Fulham had earlier savoured an incredible opening-day 5-0 destruction of Norwich at Craven Cottage and Martin Jol’s men will be a test today.

Ferguson said: “I went to see Fulham on Saturday, they played very well. The club has grown tremendously since Roy Hodgson got them to the Europa League final.

“The place is buzzing, a full house every week, good atmosphere. Their home record is terrific and they’ve got a lot of experienced players — six players over 30.

“It won’t be an easy game but we’re at home and we have to make an impact quickly after losing Monday night and we expect that.”
