Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic should be available again after only narrowly missing out at the weekend, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is back in contention after being forced to sit out against his parent club.

Antonee Robinson's rash challenge in the West London derby means that he will miss Fulham's next three matches through suspension, with Joe Bryan set to deputise on the left.

Tom Cairney, Mario Lemina and Terence Kongolo also remain sidelined for Parker's men, but there is likely to be better news elsewhere.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Tete, Cordova-Reid, Reed, Anguissa, Bryan; Cavaleiro, Lookman

Manchester United have a relatively clean bill of health, with Brandon Williams, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo - all of whom have been linked with moves away from the club anyway - the only absentees.

Solskjaer faces an interesting selection dilemma as to whether to shuffle his pack knowing that another showdown with Liverpool - this time in the FA Cup - awaits at the weekend and Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes are all just one booking from a ban.

The Premier League remains the priority, particularly now that his side find themselves in a title race, so wholesale changes are not likely, but there could be some tinkering to keep legs fresh.

Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Eric Bailly and Alex Telles are among the players pushing for a start after missing out on the XI at Anfield.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani
