Manchester United are back at Old Trafford when they take on Fulham in their 26th game of the Premier League season. The last time these two sides faced off in the league was in November at Craven Cottage when Man United won 1-0. Man United could be level on points with Spurs, who are 5th in the table with 47 points, while a win for Fulham could put them up closer to 11th.

Manchester United has won their last five games in all competitions. Most of the goals came from Rasmus Hojlund, who scored in all five games. Hojlund was in good form ahead of this game, scoring a brace against Luton Town in the previous game. Unfortunately, the Danish player suffered an injury and will not feature against Fulham. Hojlund will be out for two to three weeks. Man United still need to find three points to keep their top 4 chances alive. The Red Devils are currently on 44 points in 6th place.

In their previous Premier League game, Fulham suffered a 2-1 loss against Aston Villa. They have one win in their last five games, beating Bournemouth 3-1 at home. Fulham are 12th in the Premier League with 29 points. A win against Man United would help them reach 32 points and be only 3 points off 11th-place Wolves. Fulham are 9 points clear of the relegation zone, but the closest team to them in the league table is Bournemouth, with 28 points. Brentford is also near them, with them having 25 points.
