Manchester United have one more Premier League game to play before the break for the World Cup.

The Red Devils travel to Fulham, surprise package, who are in the top half of the table, sitting ninth, heading into the weekend.

The fixture kicks off at 4.30pm on Sunday and while there may be some team news to still emerge ahead of the fixture, we have a good idea of ​​what the side may look like.

Antony, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo missed the midweek game against Aston Villa and it would be a surprise if any return for this game.

Predicted Manchester United line-up v Fulham

David de Gea will return in goal after sitting out to give Martin Dubravka a chance.

The dilemma is at right-back, and it is unlikely Wan-Bissaka will be considered. This leaves a choice between playing Tyrell Malacia at the position, or Victor Lindelf.

This fixture will suit the Swede better, with his height more useful to defend against Fulham, even if they are without Aleksandar Mitrovic who is battling injury.

Harry Maguire other Lisandro Martinez will then line up in central defence, with Luke Shaw at left-back.

Casemiro other Christian Ericsen will be called upon to start this one after both coming off the bench and getting a mini-rest in midweek.

Bruno Fernandes will start, and there will be no place for a struggling Donny van de Beek in midfield.

Anthony Martial will start up front with Marcus Rashford on one wing, the question is over who starts with him.

There will be a desire to see sensation Alejandro Garnacho come in. However, we predict Erik ten Hag will look to use him as an impact substitute.

Anthony Elanga then may start, with Ten Hag looking for his work rate to set the tone early.
