The betting tip is...
Both teams to score in second half.
The Red Devils have come out as a strong team since the beginning of the second half of the ongoing season of club football. They have improved their spot in the Premier League to third and now are in close competition with Tottenham. However, Erik ten Hag is still far from reaching the top spot in the Premier League as they are 16 points behind the league leaders Arsenal. The Red Devils are strong contenders for the FA Cup trophy because of their recent performances.
Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are still out of action because of their respective injuries. Casemiro is suspended for the match.
Predicted Lineup: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Sabitzer, Sancho, Fernandes, Elanga, Rashford
Fulham have recently gone through a rough patch in the recent weeks. They are travelling to Old Trafford after witnessing two consecutive losses against Brentford and Arsenal. These two losses have also affected their position in the Premier League point table. The Cottagers have dropped from the 6th position to the 8th spot in the point table.
Tom Cairney might return from his foot injury and is expected to start the game.
Predicted Lineup: Leno,Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Reed, Lukic, Willian, Pereira, Solomon, Mitrovic
Fulham have struggled in the past week to register a win. Two consecutive losses would have affected their confidence all over. Manchester United, on the other hand, has a slight dip in form as well. We predict this match will go to penalties.
