Sancho and Garnacho start: predicted Man United line-up vs Fulham

Manchester United are preparing for their final Premier League game of the season as Erik ten Hag looks to round off a successful campaign with a third-place finish.

The midweek victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford lifted the Reds into third place and another win would guarantee the standings, having already secured a return to the Champions League.

Additionally, three points against Marco Silva’s men would see United end the season on 75 points – an 18-point improvement from the calamity of the 2021/22 season.

It is highly likely that Ten Hag will be rotating his side heavily for the visit of Fulham but he will still be keen on sealing that third-place finish, with a mix of first-team regulars and rotational players expected.

Jadon Sancho was one of the players to be the subject of praise from the Dutchman following the 4-1 win over Chelsea, with Alejandro Garnacho expected to be handed his first start since returning from injury.

Wout Weghorst could feature in what will be his final league appearance for the Reds and Scott McTominay could also start for the first time after a lengthy injury absence.

Harry Maguire is likely to come in for Luke Shaw after the full-back was withdrawn against Chelsea, with Tyrell Malacia replacing him.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has earned the trust of the manager in the last couple of months and is almost guaranteed to play in the FA Cup final next week, meaning Diogo Dalot is expected to start against Fulham.

Predicted Manchester United line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Malacia; McTominay, Fred; Sancho, Fernandes, Garnacho; Weghorst
