Fulham showed their mettle by securing a 1-1 draw against Brighton in their previous match, and they wouldn’t be displeased with a similar outcome against Manchester United. Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira is expected to return to the starting lineup, but Issa Diop and Tosin Adarabioyo remain sidelined due to injury. Both Kenny Tete and Adama Traore are doubtful for the game.

On the other hand, Manchester United is determined to bounce back from their significant 3-0 loss to Manchester City. However, conquering Fulham in London is no easy task. A closely contested match is anticipated, and we believe that bettors worldwide may find value in wagering on a draw.

Mason Mount is vying for a starting spot, but Lisandro Martinez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, and Tyrell Malacia are all still out with injuries. There is also doubt surrounding the availability of Casemiro for the match.

Team News:

In recent weeks, there has been little change in the Fulham injury list. Issa Diop (foot), Tosin Adarabioyo (groin), Adama Traore (thigh), and Kenny Tete (unspecified) all remained sidelined as of Wednesday evening. However, Traore and Tete are making progress in their recovery and might be part of the squad this weekend.

Manager Silva’s main selection concern lies in the striker position, with Muniz staking a claim after scoring his first goal of the season at Portman Road.

Silva has hinted at the possibility of Muniz displacing Raul Jimenez, who has struggled to find the net since joining Fulham in the summer. Bernd Leno, Tim Ream, and Antonee Robinson are set to return to the defensive lineup.

For Manchester United, Casemiro made a comeback from an ankle issue in their defeat to Newcastle but had to be substituted at halftime with a new unspecified issue. He is likely to be on the bench at best in the upcoming match.

Luke Shaw (muscle), Amad Diallo (knee), Jadon Sancho (disciplinary), Tyrell Malacia (knee), and Lisandro Martinez (foot) will not be available for the visitors.

Raphael Varane, who missed the EFL Cup match due to illness, will undergo further assessment in the coming days. On a positive note, Aaron Wan-Bissaka made a comeback from his thigh injury and is among the candidates to start in the upcoming match, along with Bruno Fernandes, Rasmus Hojlund, and Marcus Rashford, who should return to the starting lineup.
