Fulham vs Manchester United: Predicted starting lineups, team news, predictions
Fulham will attempt to shock Manchester United when both sides lock horns at the Craven Cottage on matchday 16 of the Premier League and below are our predicted starting lineups, predictions and team news.
The hosts lost 2-1 to ten men Manchester City last weekend in the league after Erling Haaland scored from the penalty spot in the last minute of the game.
Fulham will want to bounce back to winning ways this weekend but to do that against a Manchester United side that lost 3-1 at Aston Villa on Sunday will require 100% concentration until the last minute of the game.
United won Villa 4-2 on Thursday night in the Carabao Cup third round to prove that the defeat at Villa Park over the weekend was nothing short of a blip.
Fulham Team News
The Cottagers will be without a number of first-team players due to injury issues and suspensions. Manor Solomon, Neeskens Kebano and Aleksandar Mitrovic have been ruled out with injuries.

Manchester United to win
