Ready for tough test

23 January 2014

Harry Maguire is looking forward to pitting his wits against Fulham's array of attacking options on Sunday.

Fresh from his battle with Christian Benteke and Andreas Weimann in round three of the FA Cup, United's number five is now ready for messrs Berbatov and Bent and he is under no illusions that the Blades will need another heroic performance to progress to the fifth round.

Maguire remarked: "As a professional footballer you want to play against the best possible players out there and the FA Cup gives us that opportunity.

"It was a terrific experience to come up against the likes of Benteke and Weimann and I was pleased with how I acquitted myself, but it was a terrific team performance from back to front and one that must be replicated on Sunday if we are to have a chance of getting through to the next round.

"Fulham have quality and strength in-depth, our lads want them to play their best players, so hopefully Berbatov and Bent are the two strikers on show.

"But it doesn't matter if it is those two or the third and fourth choice strikers, they are at Fulham, playing in the Premiership for a reason - they are very good players.

"If we are at our best, similar to the performance at Villa Park, then there is no reason why we can't win, but we know any mistakes or dips in concentration will be punished."
