MANCHESTER UNITED vs FULHAM

Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are among the players that could be absent for Manchester United against Fulham. The trio will be assessed on Friday, as will centre-back Eric Bailly. Luke Shaw is hoping to return after missing that match with a knock and Ashley Young is back from suspension. Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku will be hoping to return to the starting line-up after being dropped to the bench against the Gunners, but Victor Lindelof (groin) and Alexis Sanchez (hamstring) are out.

Fulham expect to have Kevin McDonald and Floyd Ayite available. McDonald and Ayite have made good progress in their attempts to recover from respective hamstring and groin injuries. Manager Claudio Ranieri is expected to make few changes to the team that showed signs of improvement in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw at home to Leicester.
