Strong XI from Solskjaer? - How Man Utd could line up against Fulham

The Red Devils could secure second place in the Premier League this week if they earn a point or more against the London outfit

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could treat this midweek's Premier League match against Fulham as a dress rehearsal for his starting XI in the Europa League final.

The Red Devils don't exactly have nothing to play for in the final two matches of the season as newly crowned FA Cup champions Leicester could mathematically still usurp them into second place in the Premier League.

One point against Fulham will be enough to secure second place so Solskjaer may try and get the points required versus the Cottagers so he can rest as many key players as possible for the last game of the season against Wolves.

The Europa League final is three days later, so expect a second-string XI on the last day of the season.

Harry Maguire is still fighting to be fit for the match against Villarreal and will miss the game against Fulham, as will Anthony Martial, Phil Jones and Daniel James.

Dean Henderson should start this one in goal, probably in front of a defence of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw.

Solskjaer has a decision to make when it comes to Paul Pogba, as although he can shine on the left of the attacking midfield three, it unbalances the rest of the team with Marcus Rashford having to go out on the right.

With Fred failing to impress against Liverpool, Pogba may be deployed in central midfield with Scott McTominay.

That will allow for a front four of Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.
