Predicted Man Utd line-up vs Fulham, Varane starts

Manchester United travel to Craven Cottage for today’s Premier League clash against Fulham.

The Red Devils have suffered back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Manchester City and Newcastle United at home. They exited the Carabao Cup after the loss to the Magpies on Wednesday night.

Manager Erik ten Hag will be eyeing a strong response from his side against the Cottagers. The game is a must-win for the club as they are already eight points behind the Champions League spots.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana has played every minute of the campaign for the Red Devils in goal. The Cameroonian made a stunning seven saves in the recent derby defeat. He is expected to continue between the sticks against Marco Silva’s side.

In front of him, there should be one change to the backline from the midweek loss to the Magpies. Raphael Varane is fit after a bout of illness. The centre-back should return to the starting line-up in place of Victor Lindelof, who is struggling with an illness of his own.

Diogo Dalot is likely to continue from the right-back spot with Sergio Reguilon keeping his place on the opposite end. Harry Maguire looks set to continue his starting streak. He should get the nod to partner Varane ahead of Jonny Evans.

In midfield, we anticipate a defensive-minded partnership. With Casemiro’s hamstring injury, Sofyan Amrabat should start from the number six role. Ten Hag may want extra protection alongside the Moroccan today in Scott McTominay. Mason Mount should drop to the bench.

Further forward, Ten Hag may opt for his best attacking combination. This could see Hannibal Mejbri, Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Martial dropping out from the line-up. Antony is generally an assured starter on the right wing but he has much to prove.

Bruno Fernandes should feature in his customary number 10 position with Marcus Rashford on the left wing. Rasmus Hojlund is a nailed-on starter up front. The attacking quartet are desperately in need of goals, having netted just three between them in the league.
