Fulham defender John Pantsil says the West Londoners want at least a point from Saturday’s clash with Manchester United.

All eyes will be on the Premier League leaders after their shocking 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool with the Craven Cottage encounter live on Setanta Ireland for Republic of Ireland viewers.

Sir Alex Ferguson has already predicted the champions will produce an immediate response to their first league defeat since November but Paintsil and his colleagues are chasing revenge following the humiliating 4-0 FA Cup defeat to United.

Fulham’s form looked to have nosedived before they picked up their first away win of the campaign at Bolton Wanderers last weekend.

“They’ve beaten us on two occasions this season,” Pantsil told Fulham’s official website. “We have to make sure we do everything possible. We know a lot about them and they’re a very tricky team. We want at least a point and don’t want to let ourselves or the fans down.

“We want to be in a good mood for the rest of the season. We just have to look forward and continue our good work and see how many points we can get.”
