Predicted Manchester United XI to face Fulham in the Premier League

Manchester United‘s 100% record came to an end under Ole Gunnar Solskjær after his side drew 2-2 with Burnley.

The Red Devils, however, are in excellent form and they look to continue the streak against relegation-threatened Fulham in the weekend. Marcus Rashford’s early goal was enough to overcome Leicester last weekend and the Manchester United boss will want the same result on Saturday at Craven Cottage.

Team News

Manchester United have just Marcos Rojo injured. With a fully fit squad, Solskjær will not be willing to settle for anything less than three points as the Red Devils look to finish in the top four. But with PSG coming to Old Trafford next week on Tuesday, the Norwegian tactician could rotate his squad to keep his players fresh.

Probable Man United XI

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjær

Formation: 4-2-3-1

David de Gea (GK)

Manchester United’s undisputed number 1 has started every game this season and will continue in goal this weekend.

Ashley Young (RB)

The Englishman has been preferred over Antonio Valencia and looks set to continue in the right-back role.


Eric Bailly (CB)

The Ivorian started last weekend’s game against Leicester and helped the Red Devils keep an important clean sheet.

Victor Lindelöf (CB)

Lindelöf has started 21 games this season and has been in brilliant form of late. He is a certain starter against Fulham.

Luke Shaw (LB)

Shaw has started United’s last 2 Premier League games ahead of Diego Dalot and the former Southampton man looks set to continue at left-back.

Nemanja Matic

Nemanja Matic (CDM)

Matic has only missed 3 games this season and his presence in midfield is an absolute necessity for Manchester Utd.

Ander Herrera (CM)

Herrera has started 11 out of Man United’s last 12 games and is a pivotal part alongside Matic in the team’s engine room.

Jesse Lingard (CAM)

Lingard is a clever customer who loves to pick up intelligent positions and hurt opponents.

Juan Mata (RW)

Although it isn’t his preferred position, Mata will likely start on the right against Fulham.

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez (LW)

Sanchez is yet to find his best form at Manchester United. Saturday’s game at Fulham could be a huge opportunity for the former Arsenal man to impress his manager.

Romelu Lukaku (ST)

Lukaku has been playing second fiddle to red-hot Marcus Rashford over the last few games but the Belgian has an opportunity to stake a claim ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash against PSG.
