Manchester United will host Fulham in their final home game of the season, as the Red Devils hope to return to winning ways.
Manchester United will hope to return to winning ways, as they host Fulham for their final home league fixture on Tuesday. The Red Devils suffered two consecutive losses, against Leicester City and Liverpool in the last week. With just two league games left to be played, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want his side to end the season on a high note.
The Red Devils will be without the services of Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial and Daniel James who continue to remain on the sidelines due to injury. Dean Henderson is expected to start between the sticks for the Red Devils, ahead of David de Gea after becoming the first choice goalkeeper for league games.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will start at right-back, whereas, Luke Shaw will operate from the left-side of the defence. The duo were ineffective against Liverpool last week, as the likes of Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota proved to be too good for them.
Paul Pogba will play a deeper role on Tuesday and will partner Scott McTominay as the centre-defensive midfielder. The latter will safeguard the hosts’ defence, whereas, Pogba can be expected to drive further up the field.
Mason Greenwood started from the bench against the Reds and is expected to play on the right-wing for Tuesday’s clash. The 19-year old has been United’s standout performer in the last couple of months and has seven league goals to his name this season.
Marcus Rashford will operate from the left-wing and will hope to get himself in goal scoring positions. The Englishman scored the hosts’ second goal against Liverpool, which brought them back into the match at least momentarily before they lost the lead.
Bruno Fernandes has been heavily involved in Manchester United’s campaign this season. He has featured in over 90% of the matches for the Red Devils and has 28 goals and 17 assists to his name so far. The Portuguese international will start as the centre-attacking midfielder against Fulham.
Edinson Cavani will start as the striker and will hope to carry on with his good form. The former Paris Saint-Germain striker has scored five goals in his last five appearances for the club and will be looking to add more to his goal-scoring tally against Scott Parker’s side.
