Manchester United squad set to start against Fulham
Manchester United travel to Craven Cottage on Wednesday night as they look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table against Fulham.
With just one loss in their last eleven games in all competitions, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have performed very well in all aspects of the game, leaving the manager with a few decisions to make.
As we reach halfway through the season and the suspension looms over a few key heads with another offense, 90min takes a look at which squad is set to start for Manchester United.
David De Gea (GK) – United’s number one is in good shape this season, so save the jersey for this one.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) – After a shaky period of form, the former Crystal Palace man looked back at his best against Liverpool with excellent defense and even creating the game’s best chance for Pogba.
Eric Bailly (CB) – Was unlucky not to get the nod against Liverpool, but his current form means he should come and rest to allow Harry Maguire to rest and ensure that he will not get a fifth yellow card and a suspension.
Victor Lindelof (CB) – Back in the squad against Liverpool and was excellent again. Arguably United’s most improved player this year.
Alex Telles (LB) – Has been Luke Shaw’s second pick since signing for the most part but has a great showing on him and with Shaw also under threat of suspension he is expected to enter.
Nemanja Matic (CM) – McFred’s energy and legs were preferred at Anfield, but Matic’s strength and stature would be of better use against Fulham’s midfielder.
Paul Pogba (CM) – United’s fittest player, the Frenchman’s role has changed and changed in recent weeks but his performances have remained high. Must start now.
Donny Van de Beek (AM) – With Bruno Fernandes looking leggy and a card from a suspension, the signing of the Dutch summer is set to have a rare start to help United retain possession and create in the last third.
Mason Greenwood (RW) – The youngster has struggled to make a huge impact this season but still has a goal in him.
Edinson Cavani (ST) – Striking off the penalty bench, Cavani’s instincts could see him playing a vital role in occupying Fulham’s defense and ending whatever they create.
Anthony Martial (LW) – Has found form in recent games playing from the left or from the front and should get the nod again in this one.
