Patrick Vieira has launched a second volley at Manchester United by claiming the Old Trafford outfit get preferential treatment from referees.

Last week, Vieira suggested United's decision to bring Paul Scholes out of retirement during the January transfer window smacked of desperation. Sir Alex Ferguson responded by claiming Roberto Mancini was the desperate one for choosing to select Carlos Tevez, a player the City manager previously stated would never appear for the club again.

In the wake of Michael Oliver's refusal to give Fulham a last-minute penalty at Old Trafford on Monday evening, Vieira has now laid bare his belief that the Red Devils get preferential treatment. He told BBC Sport: "When United play at home they get some advantage that other teams don't get."
