United might be struck with another injury blow as it has been reported by the Manchester Evening News that Anthony Martial has not boarded the team bus for the game.
Looks like Anthony Martial isn't fit enough for Fulham. Not with the United squad this evening. #mufc

Martial was substituted early in the second half against Arsenal, when the player looked in discomfort. The French forward has been one of the most impressive players in a rather frustrating season for Manchester United. Martial has scored 7 goals in his last 8 Premier League games.
The forward also opened the goalscoring against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Marouane Fellaini, however, has been spotted, and according to M.E.N, has been included in the final squad for the game. Fred also returns to the squad after being unavailable for the game against Arsenal.
Here’s the final squad, according to M.E.N. –
David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Fred, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku.
