Reinvigorated Manchester United will travel all the way to West London for the match tie against Fulham. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are fully aware that a win for them will take them to fourth position on the log.
Fulham will have a daunting task on their hands when they faced a rejuvenated United side. Many might have thought that the Cottagers come-back against Brighton and Hove Albion was a good sign of things to come for the club, but a loss to Crystal Palace showed that they might not be ‘just there’ yet.
The Cottagers who haven’t faced any of Manchester United, Chelsea, City and Liverpool with 13 games left till season’s end will know that they are in some relegation battle of some sort and would love to overturn that when they host United.

United have been more clinical in front of goal in recent games and remain unbeaten under Solskjaer.
Solskjaer will be demanding all he can get from his side to snuff out a win, get all three points and wait for Chelsea and Arsenal to lose points.
That said, United have a triple-header against Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and Liverpool following their match against Fulham.
However, their focus will be on getting a win from this tie.

For the Cottagers, Alfie Mawson and Cyrus Christie are all injury doubts.
