Man Utd leaked XI vs Fulham: Manchester United’s XI against Fulham could see huge changes.
Manchester United have been in fine form under Solskjaer. The side has been in fine form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as United are yet to lose a game this season.
Solskjaer’s men will take on Fulham later today in the Premier League, and like every match-day, Manchester Evening News have leaked the team news for the game.
There have been five changes to the side which defeated Leicester City last week.
While Marcus Rashford is given rest considering the game against Paris Saint Germain next week, Lindelof will also be rested.
Here’s the full team:
Starting XI: De Gea, Dalot, Smalling, Bailly, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Herrera, Mata, Martial, Lukaku.
Manchester United are currently 5th in the Premier League and are two points ahead of Arsenal. The side climbed from the sixth position for the first time since the beginning of the season.
Think there’s a chance Mata, Lukaku and Dalot could start against Fulham today. Makes sense to give Rashford a rest before PSG on Tuesday.

Early word is Mata and Lukaku could come into the team, with Rashford rested. Dalot is down to start at right-back, with Smalling or Jones set to come in for Lindelof. #mufc

Solskjaer won the manager of the month trophy earlier this week, while Rashford bagged the player of the month.
The English youngster has stepped up under Solskjaer and the decision to rest him and Lingard may have confirmed Solskjaer’s plans for the game against PSG.
So, Ashley Young has been given a new deal today too. Hmmm. These players are on big money. But it’s cheaper to extend their contracts than fork out on a world class full back. So let’s hope Shaw and Dalot can develop. The former has to do a lot more imo. pic.twitter.com/uchkFegPhY

Victor Lindelof has been solid in the defence, and the arrival of Eric Bailly has been a boost to Solskjaer. However, the Ivory Coast defender has hardly played this season due to injuries and inconsistent form and is expected to start today.
