Manchester United host Fulham in their final home game of the season which will see fans return to the iconic stadium in a limited capacity. The Red Devils put in a terrible performance last time around against arch-rivals Liverpool and lost 2-4, their sixth loss in the league season, all of which have come at home.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will want to put in a strong performance and end their home season on a high on Tuesday night. A win for United against the Cottagers. will confirm a second place finish for them. At Craven Cottage earlier in the season, United had won the game narrowly thanks to a wonder strike from Paul Pogba.
Let’s take a look at the possible Man United lineup for the game against Fulham.
PREDICTED MAN UNITED LINEUP VS FULHAM (4-2-3-1)
Manchester United will be without captain and star defender Harry Maguire, as well as Phil Jones, Daniel James, and Anthony Martial for Tuesday night’s game. Solskjaer could give a few players a break and rotate the side to keep his players fresh ahead of the all-important Europa League final.
Dean Henderson put in an average performance against Liverpool and was at fault for one of the goals and had a tough time communicating with a nervy backline in front of him. David de Gea, who could start the Europa League final, could replace him, to get some game time under his belt.
Solskjaer may rest Eric Bailly, who played twice in the last week, and he could be replaced by Axel Tuanzebe. Victor Lindelof should start alongside Tuanzebe, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka should start at right-back. Luke Shaw could also be given a break with Alex Telles taking his place at left-back in the Man United lineup.
Fred and Scott McTominay were dreadful against Liverpool, and both could be replaced in midfield. Nemanja Matic could come into the Man United lineup, while Paul Pogba could move to the central area. Bruno Fernandes should start as the attacking midfielder, while Donny van de Beek is an option that Solskjaer could use off the bench.
Edinson Cavani will most likely be rested for Tuesday night’s game with the in-form Mason Greenwood replacing the veteran striker up front in the Man United lineup.
Amad Diallo could get a start on the right side of the attack for the Red Devils after his Premier League debut against Leicester City last week.
Marcus Rashford will most likely start on the left in the Man United lineup against Fulham. Juan Mata and Anthony Elanga could be options off the bench for Solskjaer.
