Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Fulham FC

Fulham have not won at Old Trafford since 2003, and the odds of ending that drought tomorrow are anything but favorable. However, this is a greatly underachieving Manchester United side which just dropped points last weekend against another relegation zone residing team, Southampton, which promptly fired its manager two days later.

United are currently plodding along, middling amongst the mid-table mediocrity, and falling further from the top four. It’s a cliche, but this is indeed a must win for them. A draw against the league’s absolute bottom side is just as bad as a defeat. So, let’s take a look at who manager Jose Mourinho could select in his first team.
