Preview:

A first kick off of the weekend. I expect us to dictate possession but our pass completion rate has to be better.

Fulham is good a home. We have to start with our best team then make the changes after we score a few goals.

A win here will take us 4th and we will see the dividends of the form. This will put some pressure on Chelsea who has a tough away game.

We are definitely showing champion form and yes people can say the victory against Leicester was a Jose type but far from it.

We made 2 attacking changes and then brought on Phil Jones at the end. I expect us to have a lot of possession and score more goals.


Player to watch: Anthony Martial, missed a sitter on the break away against Leicester City. I expect him show his tricks and get on the score sheet.


DDG

Dalot. Bailly. Lindelof. Shaw

Herrera. Matic. Pogba

Lingaard. Rashford. Martial

Subs: Remo, Fred, Mata, Sanchez, Lukaku, Smalling, Dalot.


Man Utd to refresh and and get some rest. Playing first is major advantage.

Pridiction: Away win. 0-3

Do you predict 0-3 for every game?

Ole with his talk of trusting everyone in the squad, needing them all for the amounts of games and so on has pretty well made a lot of changes for Fulham a done deal.

And it is like the old days back again, with risks being taken, not an attempt to play safe which often comes unstuck anyway.

Rashford who suffered a dead leg and played on against Leicester could probably do with a rest anyway, and I think Ole may want to try to play Sanchez into some kind of form, as he really has to shape up soon if he is ever going to.

So I would expect quite a few changes, with Rashford and maybe Lindelof rested, with what may be virtually a B team put out.

Not sure I agree with all of that, teh impression I get is that Ole knows what his preferred 11 + subs is, and tries to play that strongest team.

On paper we should easily win this, but it's no time for complacency, yes we need to get players match fit for upcoming tougher games, but I would prefer to see them come on as subs, once the game is in the bag.

The Burnley game we made few changes, and we made the price for it.

Keep the same midfield..

ll start Lukaku and Sanhez again maybe. Similar team to Arsenal Fa Cup.

If we're winning comfortably, take Pogba & Matic off

I have a feeling it will be a close game, 0-2 away win

Ole has now told us that he reckons that certain players are the key to particular matches, and that form and fitness permitting, he pretty well knows who he is going to play.

So what team will he fancy to get through a packed defence as Fulham are surely going to play?

In his analysis he breaks goals down to three situations, fast breaks, breaking through a packed defence, and set pieces.

Who were the last people we played who might present similar problems to Fulham, which may give us a clue as to his team?

I think we'll win this maybe love 2 or 3. But hopefully we'll score early and rest key players.

That will be ideal.

Fitness being the key word here. Sanchez has to come to the party now that the season is hotting up. Fred as well.

Herrera was the key man missing at Burnley, with Perreira's mistake after Jones put him under pressure leading to the goal.

Of course Ole will have to rest some and rotate, but I hope it is not Herrera!

I think Dalot deserves a run out, as he was impressive when we tried him, and he is flexible positionally.

After clawing back Arsenal and getting within striking distance of Chelsea and 4th place, I don’t think Ole will want to take too many chances with the league. Fulham, on their current form and even at home, should be almost an automatic 3 points - and maybe that what’s worrying me - games like this are easy to overlook and take for granted, especially with PSG and LFC coming up. I think there are players that would benefit from having a day off; Matic and Young immediately come to mind, giving a breather to Lindgard and Herrera would not hurt either. With that in mind; come out flying, score early and often, get the game wrapped up and done with in the 1st half then turn the game into a passing drill.
DeGea
Dalot Jones Smalling Shaw
Pereira Fred Pogba
Lindgard Lukaku Martial
Subs: Romero, Rashford, Mata, Herrera, McTominay, Bailly

Hi Arizona.

I think Ole has ruled out a low rate of rotation for this sort of game, by reaffirming repeatedly that he trusts all his squad, needs them and will give everyone their chance.

If they don't get it, he will have destroyed his credibility with the players and proved to have been blowing smoke.

We are back to the United way, which means risk, even though for instance myself in saying we must play Herrera got a bit chicken when it came to it.

SAF did a lot of squad rotation, and so will Ole.

If they are playing for United, he expects his players to beat Fulham.

I'll have sanchez instead of Mata. I don't trust Jones so we have to score first.
