Fulham Team News

The Londoners could give debuts to Lazar Markovic and Havard Nordtveit this weekend. The duo joined Fulham on transfer-deadline day but were not ready to be included in their matchday squad for the last outing against Crystal Palace.

However, with a week’s training under their belts, Markovic and Nordtveit could be selected against the Reds. Andre Schurrle might also feature after missing the previous game through injury.

On the other hand, one man who won’t be playing is United loanee Tim Fosu-Mensah, with the defender ineligible for selection against his parent side. Saturday’s hosts with also be without Marcus Bettinelli, who is out for the season after undergoing knee surgery last week, and long-term absentee Alfie Mawson.

Manchester United Team News

The Reds have a full-strength squad to pick from for the match, which means defender Chris Smalling is available for the trip to his old club. The centre-back has not played since picking up a foot injury in the home game against Fulham two months ago, but could return this weekend.

With a busy schedule coming up, Ole could be tempted to rotate his squad on Saturday, especially given the huge clash against Paris Saint-Germain next week. United also face Chelsea and Liverpool later this month before the return leg against PSG at the start of March.

To find out the manager’s latest team plans make sure to tune in to Ole’s pre-match press conference on Friday.
