Man Utd vs Fulham: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

16 May 2021 07:15

Manchester United can seal second place in the Premier League table on Tuesday with victory over already relegated Fulham.

The Red Devils are in the midst of a tricky run of form domestically, so a win here would go a long way to building up some momentum for the upcoming Europa League final. They've lost their last two Premier League outings, both at home, to Leicester and Liverpool.

For Fulham, this one is all about pride. They're in a straight shootout with West Brom for 18th and will be keen to give a good account of themselves between now and the end of the campaign. Results wise, Scott Parker's side are really out of form - they've scooped up just one point out of a possible last 15.

Here's 90min's preview of the game.

Manchester United team news

Maguire's season is over | Pool/Getty Images

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that we're probably not going to see centre-back Harry Maguire again this season because of an ankle injury, leaving him on the sidelines alongside long-term absentee Phil Jones.

French forward Anthony Martial is approaching a comeback from a knee injury but is unlikely to feature in this one, and it's unlikely that Dan James will make it back from his unspecified injury in time either.

Midfielder Mario Lemina is free to return to the lineup after being unable to face parent club Southampton last time out, but we may see his minutes handed to academy players or others who stand to feature in the club's plans next season.

At the back, Antonee Robinson, Alfie Mawson and Terence Kongolo all remain sidelined, as do midfield duo Tom Cairney and Kevin McDonald.

Man Utd vs Fulham predicted lineups

Manchester United: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani.

Fulham: Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Bryan; Lemina, Zambo Anguissa; Reid, Carvalho, Lookman; Maja.

It's the battle of two sides who haven't looked like they want to win at all recently, but regardless of form, this one has to be United's to lose.

With Fulham already sunk, this game will mean a lot more to United, who are desperate to get back to winning ways after the Liverpool thumping and ahead of the Europa League final. They need this win far more than Fulham, so expect them to go for it.

The Cottagers will hope to create a problem or two, but United - with England hopeful Mason Greenwood in their ranks - will hope to see out their Old Trafford season in style.

Prediction: Manchester United 3-0 Fulham
