Manchester United will face off against Fulham at Craven Cottage this Saturday afternoon as they try to secure a win on the road in the Premier League. The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss against Newcastle United which knocked them out of the EFL Cup earlier this week. Hence, they would be desperate to bounce back with a positive result versus the Cottagers.
Erik ten Hag will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation once again and could make a whole host of changes to his first XI for this game. Rasmus Hojlund, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will play from the start of this contest in the English capital.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Fulham
Andre Onana will feature in between the sticks for Man United after conceding three goals in his last outing. Raphael Varane will function alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of Man United’s backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the game.
Diogo Dalot could get another chance to impress as the right-back while Sergio Reguilon hopes to put in a decent display as the left-back. Ten Hag would ask both of them to be a good defensive shape inside their half so that they can limit the chances the home team creates from the wide areas.
Victor Lindelof will offer cover for the centre-back positions on the bench.
Sofyan Amrabat and Scott McTominay will anchor the midfield for Man United as they try to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will operate just ahead of them as part of Man United’s attack. All three of them need to be at their best if Man United are to come away with all three points from Craven Cottage this weekend.
Mason Mount and Alejandro Garnacho will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they await their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Rasmus Hojlund will lead the charge for the Red Devils on the offensive end of the field. He was rested on the bench in midweek and could be eager to impress against Fulham this Saturday afternoon.
Anthony Martial will make up the numbers on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages of the game if Man United are in need of a goal by then.
