Manchester United travel to London on Saturday safe in the knowledge that a win against struggling Fulham will get us into the Champions League places before Chelsea play Manchester City on Sunday evening. The game against the relegation battlers comes at the right time, as the Cottagers have struggled since returning to the Premier League. They have conceded a whopping 55 goals and have scored a paltry 25 in the same number of matches.
United will head into the game full of confidence, and there are a number of sites where you can watch the match via livestream for those who won’t watch the game live at the stadium. Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December, no team has won more points than United’s 22, with many tipping United to finish in the Top 4 after clawing back an 11-point deficit. Last time out, another goal from Marcus Rashford gave us three points against a spirited Leicester with Paul Pogba supplying yet another assist.
United have a clean bill of health for the game as Paul Pogba has shaken off his minor injury scare at the King Power Stadium. The Frenchman is back to his brilliant best after a difficult spell under Jose Mourinho and played all 90 minutes against Claude Puel’s team, and he will be hoping to register a goal in the game.
Anthony Martial missed the draw against Burnley after sustaining an injury in training but was back on the bench against Leicester, coming off the bench. Chris Smalling is fully fit after suffering a recent foot injury.
United’s only absentee is Marcos Rojo, who has been out of action since December with an unspecified. The 28-year-old defender has played only two matches since the 2018 World Cup and has been hit with a series of injuries since the tournament in Russia.
Speaking before the Leicester game, Solksjaer spoke about Rojo. He said, “Marcos is outside running now so I think he can see the light at the end of the tunnel “I think he might join in bits and bobs in training because that will help him mentally.”
His last piece of action came in mid-December, where he struggled to contain Cristiano Puccini in a 2-1 loss to Spanish side, Valencia 2-1 in the Champions League, a game that saw us miss the chance to top Group H. That fact left us being paired with French side, PSG in the first knockout stages of the tournament.
