Manchester United team news and predicted XI vs Fulham

All the latest team news from Old Trafford ahead of their Premier League showdown

Manchester United host Fulham on the final day of the season with Champions League football already guaranteed to come to Old Trafford next season.

A 4-1 win over a sorry Chelsea side secured their spot in the top four, and the Champions League for 2023-24, though they need a win to ensure that they finish in 3rd place ahead of Newcastle United, who face a trip to Chelsea on the final day.

There is a bigger concern, however, with the FA Cup final looming large against treble-chasing Manchester City next weekend, and a feeling that we may see a very different Manchester United side take to the field as Ten Hag looks to rotate his squad after a hard season.

Here’s how we expect the Red Devils to line up, and the latest team news from Old Trafford.

Predicted XI

Team News

Manchester United fear that Antony could miss as much as two months after being stretchered off against Chelsea on Thursday. The Brazilian fell awkwardly in a challenge with Trevoh Chalobah and needed to be substituted in the first half of their 4-1 win that secured Champions League football.

It means that Jadon Sancho, who began the game against Chelsea on the left, could be moved across to the right as he was in midweek, but there are further questions over how much Erik ten Hag will risk his stars in a game that means nothing to Manchester United, but is just seven days before their FA Cup showdown with Manchester City.

Luke Shaw, who limped off in midweek, is another that is likely to be given the day off in a bid to get fit for the Wembley showpiece, while Lisandro Martinez, Donny van De Beek and Marcel Sabitzer are all sidelined through injury and will not play again this season.
