Over the past few weeks, there has been little movement in or indeed out of the Fulham medical bay, where Issa Diop (foot), Tosin Adarabioyo (groin), Adama Traore (thigh) and Kenny Tete (unspecified) remained on Wednesday evening.

However, Traore, Adarabioyo and Tete are working their way back to full fitness and might make the squad this weekend, and Silva's biggest selection dilemma lies in the number nine role after Muniz justified his manager's selection with a first goal of the season at Portman Road.

Silva has hinted that Muniz could now force his way in over Raul Jimenez, who remains without a goal since joining the Cottagers in the summer, while Bernd Leno, Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson will all return to the rearguard.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Ream, Bassey, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; Willian, Pereira, Iwobi; Muniz

When it rains it pours for Man United, who welcomed Casemiro back from an ankle issue in their defeat to Newcastle, but the ex-Real Madrid man was then withdrawn at half time with a new hamstring issue and will be sidelined for weeks.

Luke Shaw (muscle), Amad Diallo (knee), Jadon Sancho (disciplinary), Tyrell Malacia (knee) and Lisandro Martinez (foot) will not be involved for the visitors either, while Raphael Varane could not participate in the EFL Cup due to illness but should be given the green light to come back here. However, Victor Lindelof is now battling his own bug and is doubtful.

On a rare positive note, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was able to come off the bench against the Magpies following his thigh complaint and is one of several names pushing for inclusion from the off this weekend, where Bruno Fernandes, Rasmus Hojlund and Marcus Rashford should all come back into the XI.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Reguilon; McTominay, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
