Mark Hughes may find that Roy Hodgson is a very hard act to follow and never more so than on a day when Manchester United visit. Under him, Fulham defeated these opponents 3-0 and 2-0 on their last two trips to Craven Cottage. United, all the same, have looked fresh and incisive so far in this campaign while beating Chelsea, in the Community Shield, and then Newcastle United in the Premier League, with half-a-dozen goals scored in total and veterans such as Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes looking in fine form.
