MONDAY, MARCH 26
  • TELEVISION
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Fulham at Manchester United
ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, 11:55 a.m.
Paul Scholes
' return from retirement had prodded Man United to the EPL lead -- they dropped Saturday behind Man City, into second place on goal difference, but have played one fewer game -- and this one could restore the Red Devils' three-point advantage. A too-sensitive Alex Ferguson, meantime, has lashed out at City's Patrick Vieira after he called the Scholes move “desperate.”

Mun2 and Universal Sports Network, 6 p.m.
A must-win clash for the Americans after Saturday's stunning defeat to Canada. El Salvador advances with a draw, maybe less.
