Manchester United V Fulham: Preview and Possible XI

Premier League: Matchweek 16

  • Venue: Old Trafford
  • Date: Saturday, December 8
  • Kick-off time: 11:00 PM

Manchester United are looking to end a run of three consecutive draws when they take on Fulham this weekend. Jose Mourinho’s side have not won in the Premier League since their late victory over Bournemouth at the beginning of November.


Manchester United have won 21 of their last 23 home matches against Fulham in all competitions, with their only defeat in this sequence coming in the Premier League in October 2003.

United have made 46 changes to their starting XI this season, including seven in their midweek draw with Arsenal – more than any other PL side.

Fulham are winless in 10 Premier League away matches and have lost their last six in a row. They last lost more consecutive away fixtures in the competition in March 2006, with eight.

Claudio Ranieri could become only the third manager to win a PL away match at Old Trafford with two different clubs, after Martin O’Neill and Rafael Benitez.


Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Young, Matic, Herrera, Mata, Pogba, Rashford, Lukaku

Fulham: Rico, Christie, Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand, Chambers, Seri, Schurrle, Cainey, Sessegnon, Mitrovic
