Manchester United entertain Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford this evening.
The Red Devils recently sealed their progress to the last eight of the Europa League and they now have the opportunity to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.
David de Gea is an undisputed starter in goal for United. He has looked nervous with his distribution but there are no doubts over his handling between the sticks. He is expected to face the Cottagers.
Diogo Dalot should replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back after sitting on the bench for the past two outings. Similarly, Luke Shaw is likely to take over from Tyrell Malacia at left-back.
In central defence, Raphael Varane should be reunited with Lisandro Martinez. The World Cup winner was given a breather in midweek where Harry Maguire got the nod to start.
With Casemiro suspended and Scott McTominay doubtful with a fresh injury, Erik ten Hag has no choice but to pick Marcel Sabitzer and Fred as his central midfield options today.
Further forward, no changes are expected. Facundo Pellistri was praised by the manager after his maiden start on the right wing and the Uruguayan is likely to continue with Antony ill.
Marcus Rashford, who netted his 27th goal of the campaign on Thursday, is expected to start on the left wing with Bruno Fernandes in the number 10 role. The Portuguese will lead the side.
Wout Weghorst has started 17 games on the trot since arriving on loan from Burnley in January. With Anthony Martial ruled out once again, the Dutchman will continue to lead the attack.
Predicted Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Sabitzer, Fred; Pellistri, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst.
