Predicted Manchester United line-up to face Fulham in the Premier League
Manchester United will take on Fulham on Saturday as the Red Devils have a chance to climb temporarily into the top four of the Premier League table.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought a new lease of life back at the club, with Manchester United winning nine and drawing once in his first 10 games at the helm. The Red Devils have won 22 points from a possible 24 in the league under Solskjaer and the Norwegian will expect his team to beat strugglers Fulham.
Fulham are fighting against relegation and need to produce something incredible to stop Solskjaer’s United at Craven Cottage.
Other than Marcos Rojo, Solskjaer has a clean bill of health ahead of the trip to Fulham.
Probable Manchester United XI
Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
David De Gea (GK)
He kept a clean sheet at Leicester City last weekend and will be hoping for the same against Fulham.
Diogo Dalot (RB)
Young has played a lot of games recently, so Dalot could be handed a start at right-back.
Victor Lindelof (CB)
Lindelof is showing his true colours of late, defending extremely well and playing with a lot of confidence.
Eric Bailly (CB)
Bailly has struggled with injuries and poor form this season. However, the Ivorian will look to keep Fulham at bay on Saturday.
Luke Shaw (LB)
Shaw has nailed down his place in the team and he’ll continue at left-back.
Nemanja Matic (CM)
Matic has regained his form under Solskjaer and is now one of the first names on the team-sheet.
Ander Herrera (CM)
Partnering Matic in the middle of the park should be Herrera, who has been excellent since the appointment of Solskjaer.
Alexis Sanchez (RW)
Sanchez is yet to hit top form this season. The game against Fulham provides the Chilean with the perfect chance to get some confidence back ahead of the mega Champions League clash against PSG.
Juan Mata (CAM)
Mata is tailor-made for the No.10 role and it looks likely that he may start in that position ahead of Pogba.
Anthony Martial (LW)
Blessed with pace and dribbling skills, Martial will look to hurt Fulham in all ways possible.

Romelu Lukaku (ST)
Lukaku appears likely to start ahead of Rashford in the No.9 role. The big Belgian is lacking confidence at the moment and the game against a struggling Fulham side would be ideal for him to bang a couple of goals and get back his scoring touch.
