Fulham star midfielder Joao Palhinha will start a two-match suspension after accumulating 10 yellow cards this season, so either Harrison Reed, Sasa Lukic or Alex Iwobi is set to deputise in the middle of the pitch alongside Tom Cairney.

The Cottagers will also have to cope without striker Raul Jimenez (thigh), while Kenny Tete (calf) and Chelsea loanee Armando Broja (illness) will both be assessed ahead of kickoff after missing the defeat to Aston Villa last weekend.

Calvin Bassey will be pushing to return at centre-back ahead of Issa Diop, while Harry Wilson and Adama Traore are set to battle with Bobby De Cordova-Reid for a start on the right flank, as Willian operates on the left and Muniz most likely plays up front.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Cairney, Iwobi; De Cordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; Muniz

Man United have been dealt a double injury blow this week as both Hojlund and Luke Shaw have been ruled out with muscle injuries; the former is set to miss the next "two to three weeks" while the latter is facing "a few months" on the sidelines.

The Red Devils will also have to cope without Aaron Wan-Bissaka (unspecified), Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia (both knee), Anthony Martial (groin) and Mason Mount (calf) as they continue to recover from long-term injuries.

Victor Lindelof is the most likely candidate to replace Shaw at left-back, although Sofyan Amrabat is also an option having previously played on the left side of defence earlier this season, while Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire are expected to complete the back four.

The absence of Hojlund will likely see Marcus Rashford deployed as a central striker, with Alejandro Garnacho moved over to the left flank and Antony recalled to start on the right wing.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Onana; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Lindelof; Casemiro, Mainoo; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; Rashford
