Hangeland eyes United shock

Fulham's star defender Brede Hangeland believes that his side can spring an FA Cup sixth round shock by beating Manchester United at Craven Cottage. The Cottagers host the Premier League leaders on the back of a disappointing 1-0 home loss to Hull City, but Hangeland retains belief that his team can hit back strongly. He commented: "I'm never scared by footballers. I respect good players and United have about 20 of them, so we'll have our work cut out. "But it's football. You saw against Hull that the weaker team can win and maybe that can happen again on Saturday. "Of course United are a top-class team, they must be the top team in the world right now. "But we're more confident at home and play better at home, so we have a fair chance. "It wasn't the best preparation for Saturday. We'd have liked to win or get a draw, but that's history now so we have to look forward to Saturday and do well in that game. "It would be worse if we played really badly, but I think we played all right. We'll try to put this behind us as quickly as possible."
