Confirmed Starting XI: Fulham vs Man United – Dalot & Lukaku start

Diogo Dalot: Signed from FC Porto.

Manchester United take on Paris Saint-Germain this coming Tuesday, and it’s a game that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clearly already has one eye on.

Today, the Red Devils head to London to take on Fulham. This is a fixture in which we could temporarily move into the top four, before Chelsea play Manchester City tomorrow.

Anyway, the team news for the Fulham game is in, and the Baby Faced Assassin has made a few changes, which has left me wary as last time he tinkered too much we dropped points at home to Burnley…

David de Gea starts in goal, with the Spaniard wearing the captains armband which is a great honour for our #1.

Diogo Dalot makes a rare start at right-back, replacing Ashley Young in the side, who is presumably being saved for the big game on Tuesday. Opposite him, Luke Shaw retains his spot. Victor Lindelof isn’t with the squad, which provides an opportunity for the English duo of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones to play together. Yep, I’m jus as worried as you are…

The midfield trio is unchanged. Nemanja Matic will sit at the base, with Ander Herrera providing the energy, passion and drive. Paul Pogba will be tasked with getting forward and causing Fulham problems defensively.

Juan Mata makes a rare start, with Anthony Martial starting opposite him over on the left. Romelu Lukaku leads the line while Marcus Rashford is dropped to the bench.
