Goal Scorer:

Manchester United
Man United have been dealt a major injury blow concerning Luke Shaw, who is facing "a few months" on the sidelines after suffering a recurrence of a muscle injury in last weekend's win at Luton; Aaron Wan-Bissaka (unspecified), Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia (both knee), Anthony Martial (groin) and Mason Mount (calf) are also in the treatment room.

Victor Lindelof is the most likely candidate to replace Shaw at left-back, although Sofyan Amrabat is also an option having previously played on the left side of defence earlier this season, while Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire are expected to complete the back four.

Ten Hag will presumably stick with the same midfield and attack for the fifth successive league game, with Casemiro, Kobbie Mainoo and Bruno Fernandes all operating in behind Alejandro Garnacho, Marcus Rashford and Hojlund.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Onana; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Lindelof; Casemiro, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund

Fulham
As for Fulham, star midfielder Joao Palhinha will serve a two-match suspension after accumulating 10 yellow cards this season, so either Harrison Reed, Sasa Lukic or Alex Iwobi is set to deputise in the middle of the pitch alongside Tom Cairney.

The Cottagers will also have to cope without striker Raul Jimenez (thigh), while Kenny Tete (calf) and Chelsea loanee Armando Broja (illness) will both be assessed ahead of kickoff after missing the defeat to Aston Villa last weekend.

Calvin Bassey will be pushing to return at centre-back ahead of Issa Diop, while Harry Wilson and Adama Traore are set to battle with Bobby De Cordova-Reid for a start on the right flank, as Willian operates on the left and Muniz most likely plays up front.
Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Cairney, Iwobi; De Cordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; Muniz
Prediction: Manchester United 3-1 Fulham
