Manchester United vs Fulham Team News:
Jose Mourinho said in the press conference on Friday that he is waiting for some positive news on the fitness of quite a few players such as Eric Baily, Phil Jones, Anthony Martial, and Chris Smalling. Ashley Young will be available again as he served his one-match ban against Arsenal for conceding five yellow cards. However, Alexis Sanchez and Victor Lindelof are the players who won’t feature due to their injuries.
Only Timothy Fosuh-Mensah is among the players who could not feature in this fixture as the player can’t play against his parent club. But the poor defensive records of Manchester United is something Ranier’s main striker Aleksander Mitrovic will thrive onto.
