Premier League LIVE! Tottenham v Everton and Manchester United v Fulham


 David Moyes feels the pressure after Fulham snatch an injury time point at Old Trafford
by Sam Dymond

  • And so to Old Trafford, and the internet is already awash with murmurs and stifled laughter at Fulham's starting XI this afternoon. There's no place for either captain Brede Hangeland or vice-captain Scott Parker, but there are debuts for John Heitinga and former United youngster Ryan Tunnicliffe. Up top, it appears that academy product Muamer Tanković will lead the line for the visitors; the FA Cup cameos of the 18-year-old have been one of the very few bright spots in Fulham's disastrous season.

  • Rene Meulensteen was joined by Ray Wilkins for an in-depth chat with Sky Sports earlier today. The Fulham head-coach was actually giving a very impressive interview until he was joined by Butch. Did you see what I did there?

  • Here's a sombre thought for Cottagers...


    Although I think most of those 24 goals were scored when the sides met in the reverse fixture.

  • Fulham's dreadful run of form coupled with their surprising team selection has most convinced that a thumping Manchester United victory is a couple of hours away, but it's worth remembering that there is considerable pressure still on the Old Trafford club and their manager. The arrival of Juan Mata was supposed to signal a new dawn but so far all there has been is a comfortable if unconvincing home win against Cardiff and defeat at out-of-form Stoke. If Fulham's urgency for points wasn't even greater, then it could have been an awkward proposition for the Red Devils. As it is...

  • Manchester United 0 Fulham 0: After an impeccable minute's silence in memory of the 1958 Munich air disaster, Manchester United kick matters off...

  • Manchester United 0 Fulham 0: In the least surprising blog post of the year, the opening minutes have all been played in Fulham's half with United dominating possession. The visitors have lined up with two flat banks of four and Lewis Holtby playing just off Tankovic. So far the hosts only have a couple of corners to show for their start.

  • Manchester United 0 Fulham 0: It's more of the same at Old Trafford with United pressing and sending a multitude of crosses into the box but, as of yet, none of them have connected with their intended targets. However, surely it's only a matter of time before one does and then it will be intriguing to see how Fulham react.

  • GOAL! Manchester United 0 Fulham 1: Incredible! Fulham have the lead! In a rare foray forward into the Manchester United half, John Arne Riise found Lewis Holtby, and the on loan midfielder's lofted pass over the the top of the United defence was breathtakingly perfect for the arriving Steve Sidwell. Fulham's captain for the day and top goalscorer met it first time and side footed low past David De Gea to give the visitors a shock lead.

  • Manchester United 0 Fulham 1: Normal service has been resumed in terms of possession and attacking, but United have yet to find a reply. Robin van Persie had an immediate opportunity to equalise after the goal but sliced wide at the far post, and then Michael Carrick took aim from long range, but was only able to thump the ball into the chest of Sidwell to wind the Fulham goalscorer.

    Moments later, Carrick has another go from a similar distance with a first time volley, but that effort swerves away from the right-hand post.

  • The most active Darren Bent has been in a Fulham shirt.

    ...and the clearances.
