Manchester United will clash heads with Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result away from home. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a 4-2 victory over Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup, whereas the Cottagers recorded a tight 2-1 loss to Manchester City.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Christian Eriksen looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven this weekend.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Fulham
David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.
Victor Lindelof is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Tyrell Malacia should start at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Bruno Fernandes will slot in as the attacking midfielder.
Christian Eriksen remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Denmark international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Sunday.
Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Antony and Marcus Rashford will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Marco Silva’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Anthony Martial is expected to lead the line for Manchester United this weekend. The France international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Fulham defence that has conceded six goals in their last five league matches.
Cristiano Ronaldo could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
