United primed for another shut-out

With the economic downturn hitting savings rates, United's home date with Fulham on Wednesday night is the ideal opportunity to make more of your hard-earned dough.
It's 13 consecutive Premier League shut-outs for United and Fulham look unlikely to upset that record at Old Trafford.
The champions have been majestic in defence with Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic in imperious form and they are more than capable of seeing off a Fulham side who have not won away all season and have managed a paltry three goals in 12 games.
The home win looks a sure bet, but at 1.25 it is very short odds so taking the 1.6 about a United cleansheet is far better value.
However United, who have amazingly won eight of their last 11 top flight games 1-0 are priced at 6.8 to rack up another 1-0 triumph and a small interest could again pay off against a Fulham side who have been defensive-minded on the road.
Fergie's charges can march five points clear with a home victory and will take another giant step to defending the crown they won last season.
Wayne Rooney returns to the squad after missing seven games with a hamstring injury, but he is only likely to take his place on the bench with Fergie set to reshuffle his side after the FA Cup win over Derby.
Cristiano Ronaldo was used in a central role at Pride Park but he is likely to return to the wing with Dimitar Berbatov returning to the line-up.
Meanwhile the bookies are running scared of United's Quadruple bid with the price as short as 14/1 in some places.
