As Manchester United prepares to host Fulham at Old Trafford this Saturday, both teams are setting their sights on crucial Premier League points for very different reasons.

United, buoyed by a recent upturn in form, aims to solidify their top-four aspirations, while Fulham seeks stability after a series of setbacks.

Manchester United's Form and Expectations

Manchester United, under Erik ten Hag's guidance, has found a rhythm that has propelled them to four consecutive league victories, extending their unbeaten streak across all competitions to seven matches.

Sitting five points behind Aston Villa, United are eager to exploit any slip-ups by their rivals.

The spotlight shines brightly on Rasmus Hojlund, whose recent scoring spree has silenced critics and highlighted his potential as a key figure in United's attack.

Fulham's Quest for Consistency

On the other side, Fulham's journey has been marred by recent exits from both the League Cup and FA Cup, alongside a dip in league performance that sees them hovering above the relegation zone.

The Cottagers are in dire need of a positive result to steer their season back on track.

Team News and Tactical Setup

Manchester United faces a defensive reshuffle due to Luke Shaw's thigh injury, with Victor Lindelof expected to adapt to the back four's needs.

The absence of key players like Tyrell Malacia and Mason Mount adds to Ten Hag's challenges, requiring strategic adjustments.

Fulham, meanwhile, will miss the presence of Joao Palhinha due to suspension, and Raul Jimenez remains sidelined with an injury.

The potential return of Armando Broja could provide a much-needed boost to their attacking options.

Predicted Lineups

Manchester United (4-2-3-1)

Onana; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Lindelof; Mainoo, Casemiro; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund.

Fulham (4-2-3-1)

This match promises to be a pivotal moment for both clubs as they navigate their respective Premier League ambitions.

With strategic battles expected across the pitch, the outcome could significantly influence their seasons.
