Manchester United vs Fulham Prediction & Match Preview

Man United
18-05-2021 | 18:00 UK
Premier League Old Trafford Round 37

Manchester United will be looking to make amends for a 4-2 loss to Liverpool when they host Fulham at their Old Trafford on Matchday 37. 

Despite the defeat, the Red Devils booked their place in the Champions League, and, no doubt, they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation. 

Both Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial are sidelined with injuries, while Daniel James is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

The Cottagers, on the other hand, failed to secure the Premier League survival, with the team collecting only 27 points in the process. 

Since the visitors are on a three-game losing run in the national championship, we are tempted to put our money on Man Utd, who aim to emerge triumphant in their last home game of the season. Terence Kongolo should be the only absentee in the away team.

Team News:

Man United will again be without the services of Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones through injury, while Daniel James is expected to remain on the sidelines for the Red Devils.

Solskjaer is likely to rest a number of players against Wolves at the weekend, meaning that it could be a relatively strong starting XI on Tuesday as the club build towards the Europa League final.

Axel Tuanzebe could potentially come in for a start at the back, while Paul Pogba may drop into a midfield two alongside Scott McTominay, allowing Marcus Rashford to play off the left.

Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood should also both be in the home side's XI, with Solskjaer keen to sign off at Old Trafford with a positive performance and result.

As for Fulham, Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo remain unavailable for selection through injury, but Mario Lemina should return to the squad, having been ineligible to face parent club Southampton on Saturday.

Parker could revert to a back four for this match, but there should be another start for 18-year-old Fabio Carvalho, who was on the scoresheet against Southampton.

Ivan Cavaleiro played through the middle on Saturday, but there may be a spot in the XI for Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has only managed three Premier League goals this season but could be a big player for the club in the Championship next term, should he stay at Craven Cottage.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood; Cavani

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Lemina, Reed; Lookman, Reid, Carvalho; Mitrovic.
