Manchester United have completed their plan to return to the Champions League and can now prepare for the final two games of the season with peace of mind. Although the FA Cup final with Manchester City is already on the horizon, Erik ten Hag never misses a match and on Sunday we can expect a battle for the cup.
Manchester United at Old Trafford will be looking to continue their impressive streak. The Red Devils are unbeaten in the league in seventeen games in front of their own home crowd. For the last time, Ten Haga got Brighton & Hove Albion for the launch of the current season. On Sunday, the Dutch manager’s players will certainly try to end the league season on a strong note.
After the game against Chelsea, we have two question marks in the Manchester United team. Antony has suffered a serious injury and is unlikely to be under Erik ten Haga this season. Luke Shaw also left the field early. Rounding out the injured list are Donny van de Beek, Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer.
The Fulham team will also have a few absentees. Layvin Kurzawa, Tim Ream and Andreas Pereira are recovering from injuries in the London team. Former Red Devils player Daniel James has a chance to return to action.
Manchester United: De Gea – Malacia, Lindelof, Varane, Wan-Bissaka – Eriksen, Casemiro – Rashford, Fernandes, Sancho – Martial
Fulham: Leno – Robinson, Diop, Adarabioyo, Tete – Palhinha, Reed – Willian, Cairney, Wilson – Vinicius
