Manchester United are unbeaten in the Premier League ever since Jose Mourinho was sacked but the past two games have been a bit testing for the Red Devils.

United dropped their first points under Solskjaer when they drew 2-2 vs Burnley last week and this weekend they had to earn a hard-fought 1-0 win over Leicester City.

But the fans are still in a joyous mood and this game against Fulham could be the ideal way to get their confidence high before the Red Devils take on PSG.



Fulham vs Man United: Team news





Man United have only two injuries going into this game – Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling.

While Rojo is ruled out of the match, Smalling could still make it to the matchday squad after a late fitness test before United head to Craven Cottage.

But given Man United will take on PSG next week, the manager is expected to make a couple of changes to his first XI.




The first big change should be dropping Marcus Rashford to the bench and playing Romelu Lukaku up front.




Rashford has been the main front man for Solskjaer up until now and the Norwegian will most certainly want to keep him fit.

Anthony Martial came off the bench against Leicester City but the Frenchman just like Marcus Rashford could also be preserved for the PSG clash.

This means Alexis Sanchez will once again get a start and Juan Mata might come into the side in place of Jesse Lingard.




The midfield region might not see any major change with Paul Pogba playing as an advanced midfielder and the duo of Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera slotted in central midfield.




Phil Jones might come into the first XI replacing Eric Bailly while the old warhorse Ashley Young should be rested and Diogo Dalot will be given a first-team start.

Fulham vs Man United: Red Devils’ predicted XI

First XI: De Gea, Luke Shaw, Lindelof, Phil Jones, Dalot, Matic, Herrera, Pogba, Sanchez, Mata, Lukaku.
