Early Squad News: Notable absentee for United as Chong travels for Fulham away

Manchester United will be looking to continue their unbeaten run this weekend, with a potentially tricky trip to Fulham.

Claudio Ranieri’s men are fighting for their lives, they’ll give absolutely everything to ensure their heads remain above the water. With that in mind, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seemingly named a strong squad for the Premier League encounter.

According to the Manchester Evening News, young Tahith Chong has travelled to London which is huge news for the talented Dutchman. However, there is a negative update as it looks as though the in-form Victor Lindelof isn’t playing.

Whether he’s injured or not, the Ice Man has been crucial to our massive up-turn in form recently so let’s just hope he’s being rested for the massive clash against PSG in midweek.

There’s also no spot in the squad for the Brazilian duo of Fred and Andreas Pereira. Both of whom have been struggling recently so there absences are somewhat easier to understand.

I just hope that if United are comfortably in front, Chong gets to make his Premier League debut and show the world just how incredibly gifted he is. I understand that it’s a long-shot, but we can all dream eh?

Manchester United’s squad in full for Fulham away (via the MEN):

De Gea, Romero, Grant, Dalot, Jones, Young, Shaw, Bailly, Smalling, Mata, McTominay, Matic, Herrera, Pogba, Chong, Lukaku, Rashford, Lingard, Sanchez, Martial.
