Man Utd predicted lineup vs Fulham

Manchester United’s last game before their mammoth FA Cup final against Manchester City sees them host Fulham on the final day of the Premier League season.

Erik ten Hag’s side secured a return to the Champions League with a 4-1 humbling of Chelsea earlier this week and have the chance to lock in a third-place finish on Sunday.

But their priority will be getting to Wembley in one piece and it’s likely that some key starters will be rested ahead of the trip to London.

Here’s how Man Utd could line up against Fulham.

GK: David de Gea – Ten Hag has played down suggestions that this could be the Spaniard’s final game at Old Trafford, insisting contract talks are progressing nicely.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – A battle against one of the season’s surprisingly impressive wingers this season in Willian should serve as an ample warm-up for a testing FA Cup final.

CB: Victor Lindelof – Played his way back into Ten Hag’s good books at the back end of this season, with many Man Utd fans advocating for the Swede to stay.

CB: Harry Maguire – It would be useful for Raphael Varane to get some rest so club captain Maguire could be drafted back in.

LB: Tyrell Malacia – Luke Shaw picked up a back problem against Chelsea and it would be foolish to risk him so soon after.

CM: Casemiro – Two goals in his last two games has propelled the midfielder to fifth in Man Utd’s Premier League scoring rankings this season.

CM: Christian Eriksen – Back in full flow and fitness after suffering a nasty ankle injury earlier this season.

RM: Alejandro Garnacho – An ankle injury to Antony should see Garnacho given a chance to fight for a spot on the wing.

AM: Bruno Fernandes – Even if he could do with a rest, Fernandes is never going to skip a game unless he’s truly hurt (or suspended, which feels more likely to be a reason).

LM: Jadon Sancho – Ten Hag probably didn’t want to bring Marcus Rashford back into the fold so quickly on Thursday, so Sancho should have another opportunity to start on the left.

CF: Anthony Martial – Responded to his various doubters over the last few weeks with a real poacher’s goal against Chelsea.
