 Fulham vs Manchester United Prediction & Match Preview


Fulham vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 20 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.

After sharing the spoils with Liverpool in the Premier League derby, Manchester United will be looking to retain top position in the standings when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage. 

The Red Devils made a slow start to the season, but they seem to be at the top of their game ahead of the trip to London. 

Man Utd recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, and seeing that they have been impressive at the back of late, away win should be considered.

All Matic, Lindelof, and Martial should be fit to face Fulham, while Rojo, Jones, and Williams remain in the recovery room. The Cottagers, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the local derby. 

Scott Parker’s troops remain in the relegation zone, and given Man Utd’s splendid form, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. 

Cairney and Lemina, remain sidelined with injury, while Mitrovic is a major doubt. Robinson is banned.

Team News:

Robinson's rash challenge in the West London derby means that he will miss Fulham's next three matches through suspension, with Joe Bryan set to deputise on the left.

Tom Cairney, Mario Lemina and Terence Kongolo also remain sidelined for Parker's men, but there is likely to be better news elsewhere.

Aleksandar Mitrovic should be available again after only narrowly missing out at the weekend, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is back in contention after being forced to sit out against his parent club.

Manchester United have a relatively clean bill of health, with Brandon Williams, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo - all of whom have been linked with moves away from the club anyway - the only absentees.

Solskjaer faces an interesting selection dilemma as to whether to shuffle his pack knowing that another showdown with Liverpool - this time in the FA Cup - awaits at the weekend.

The Premier League remains the priority, particularly now that his side find themselves in a title race, so wholesale changes are not likely, but there could be some tinkering to keep legs fresh.

Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Eric Bailly and Alex Telles are among the players pushing for a start after missing out on the XI at Anfield.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Tete, Cordova-Reid, Reed, Anguissa, Bryan; Cavaleiro, Lookman

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani
