Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Leicester City

Share

Manchester United head to Fulham FC on Saturday in a renewal of a series that has been ridiculously one-sided. In 27 previous meetings in league play, United have won a whopping 19 times while Fulham have just three triumphs; to go along with five draws.

Fulham have conceded 55 goals in 25 games while United are undefeated in their last ten games (nine wins, one draw). The Red Devils won the reverse fixture 4-1 in December. That was also the final home game of the Jose Mourinho era.

Let’s take a look at who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may start in this clash. With a very rough run of fixtures just ahead, expect the Norwegian to rest a couple of his starters and pull a few of them early in the second half.
