The match involving Fulham and Manchester United was chosen to kick off the twenty-sixth round of English Premier League 2018/2019. At the Craven Cottage Stadium in London, the match is scheduled to start at 10:30 AM (GMT).
In their return season to the Premier League, Fulham have strongly indicated that they should not stay for long in the elite division of English football. On the previous day, in the duel of Londoners with Crystal Palace, was beaten by 2 to 0, remaining parked in the nineteenth – penultimate – position.Not only did he continue into the relegation zone now having a less round to react as he saw Burnley, seventeenth and first out of the sticking region, increase the gap between them to seven points by drawing at home to Southampton , another who is also in the battle against relegation.The possibility of returning to play at home is a breeze for fans. As principal, the Fulham figures are far superior. Of the 36 points played in his stadium, the team reached 15 (four wins, three draws and five losses). In that aspect, it appears like fourteenth better of the English Championship. It is not, of course, an extraordinary performance, but if it depended only on the results at home, the team would be out of Z3.Veteran coach Claudio Ranieri has some limitations on scaling the team for Saturday’s meeting. Defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah (nine matches in the 2018/2019 English League without a goal), who was loaned to the club by Manchester United, is barred from acting due to the contract clause. Offside, but due to injury, are goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli (seven games) and defender Alfie Mawson (13 games, no goal).They are in the care of the medical department, but are likely to be released depending on the evolution of their recovery, midfielders Andre Schurrle (21 games, six goals) and Andre-Frank Anguissa (11 games, no goal).

Manchester United defeated Leicester 1-0 in the previous round and managed to enter the qualifying zone for international Premier League competitions. Reaching 48 points (14 wins, six draws and five losses), he left Arsenal, who parked at 47 to lose to Manchester City in sixth place.Something that seemed unattainable in the times of coach Jose Mourinho. After the resignation of the Portuguese, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provoked a revolution in a short time. It was nine wins and a draw that allowed United to dream even of a place in the G4, which would give place in the 2019/2020 European Champions League. Chelsea, which closes this block, has two more points.However, the great expectation is in relation to the debut of the Norwegian technician in the current edition of UCL (Uefa Champions League). Next Tuesday, February 12, the team, which qualified in the first phase with the direction of Mourinho, will receive the Paris Saint-Germain. This game may have an influence on the starting lineup this Saturday. Also because, after the duel against the French, United will have two classics. He will take Chelsea for the FA Cup and Liverpool for the English Premier League.The club’s medical department practically emptied itself, increasing Solskjaer’s options. His only restriction to qualify for the meeting with Fulham is Argentine defender Marcos Rojo (two games in the 2018/2019 version of the English League, no goal), which follows the care of the medical department.As a visitor, United is already in the G4. It has the fourth best campaign of the Premier League in that situation having obtained 23 (seven victories, two draws and four losses) of the 39 points that disputed far from its dominions.
Football Prediction of the Day Fulham vs Manchester United
After facing each other since the 2013/2014 season, United and Fulham met again in the first round of the English Premier League in 2018/2019. Manchester United’s home side thrashed 4-1 to extend their unbeaten run in front of their rivals for 11 matches (nine wins and two draws).
With the possibility of a return of Pogba and Martial, released by the medical department, United are expected to use this Saturday’s showdown to test the team they intend to put on the field against PSG, which means the use of the starting team. Thus, the prognosis in the visitors’ victory against a seemingly aimless Fulham is the best option for the clash that opens the dispute of the twenty-sixth round of the English Championship version 2018/2019.
