It’s hard to believe that the 4-1 win over the Premier League strugglers during Jose Mourinho’s tenure came only two months ago, with goals from Ashley Young, Juan Mata, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford sealing the win then.
Man United: Chris Smalling will be fit to return against his former club, giving Solskjaer extra options at the heart of defence. The former England international has been unavailable since injuring his foot against Claudio Ranieri’s side in December.
Hot like a pistol, United has its eyes on fourth place. In brilliant form, the club hasn’t lost in its first nine games under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Whether United is back remains to be seen, the but can’t deny the results so far.
Otherwise United are likely to go with the same line-up which has served them well under Solskjaer to this point. The only question in the back of the Norwegian’s mind will be whether this is a good opportunity to make a few changes before Paris Saint-Germain come to town on Tuesday.
Fulham: Timothy Fosu-Mensah will not be eligible to play due to the terms applied to Premier League loan moves, but Claudio Ranieri will be able to call upon Cyrus Christie and Andre Schurrle with both having recovered from injuries.
In 19th place and seven points back, points have to come from somewhere and fast. The defense is the league’s worst, so they need to be more patient in attack and try to keep the ball away from the opposing team as much as they can.
