Manchester United v Fulham

Match Preview
Manchester United will attempt to extend their unbeaten start to December when they welcome Fulham to Old Trafford.

Manchester United will attempt to extend their unbeaten start to December when they welcome Fulham to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have drawn both of their Premier League games this month – against Southampton and Arsenal – and they head into the clash sitting eighth.

Jose Mourinho’s men will certainly be looking to get back to winning ways, having failed to claim a victory at home since October 28, and their recent record against Fulham suggests three points will be on the cards.

United are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with the Cottagers, winning eight times, while they haven’t lost to the west London side at Old Trafford since 2003.

Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are all nursing injuries and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.

Ashley Young returns to the fold after serving a one-match suspension although Victor Lindelof and Alexis Sanchez remain sidelined.

Fulham have shown signs of improvement following the appointment of Claudio Ranieri last month, but they continue to leak goals.

They have the worst defence in the league, having shipped 36 goals, but victory could see them climb out of the bottom three.

Kevin McDonald and Floyd Ayite are hoping to boost Ranieri’s options after recovering from hamstring and groin injuries respectively.

On-loan defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah is ineligible to face his parent club so will watch from the stands at Old Trafford.

Fulham have failed to win any of their last 10 Premier League away games, losing their last six, which is their worst run for 12 years.
