Manchester United host Fulham at Old Trafford on Tuesday, with a chance to guarantee a second place finish in the Premier League this season. United have lost their last two league games against Leicester City and Liverpool, during last week’s ridiculous playing schedule. After the core of the team put in a very leggy performance last Thursday in particular, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping a rare couple of days off was enough to revitalize his squad.
Tuesday also marks the first time in over a year that fans will be allowed inside Old Trafford — 10,000 supporters are expected to be in attendance, to cheer on the Reds at home for the only time this entire season. Captain Harry Maguire will miss out with injury, but Anthony Martial and Daniel James are back in training and may be fit enough to make the matchday squad. David de Gea — linked with a move away this summer — may get a chance to make a (final?) home start in the league as well.
