Premier League 18/5/2021 – Manchester United v Fulham

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Phil Jones and Harry Maguire are the only missing players for Manchester United on Tuesday, with Dan James and Anthony Martial back to make the bench against Fulham.
  • United will likely go full strength here and then play a second-strong XI on the final day of the season ahead of next week’s Europa League final against Villarreal.
  • David de Gea is expected to start the final at the end of the month so should really start one of United’s last two games of the season. This could prove his final match at Old Trafford and fans will be back in the stadium on Tuesday.
  • Mario Lemina is back in contention after missing out against parent club Southampton at the weekend.
  • Harrison Reed recovered from injury to start in Fulham’s loss to Southampton on Saturday but Antonee Robinson has an ankle injury and won’t recover in time to feature at Old Trafford.
  • Josh Onomah made his first league start since September at the weekend in a clear sign Scott Parker is planning for players that will be at the club next season following their relegation.
  • 18-year-old Fabio Carvalho made his Premier League debut against Southampton and even scored a consolation goal. He should keep his place in the side.

  • Jan Bednarek remains a doubt for Southampton after missing their 3-1 win over Fulham at the weekend through injury.
  • Danny Ings, who has been tipped as a target for Manchester City this summer, could be recalled here.
  • Nathan Tella scored his first ever Premier League goal at the weekend and then followed that up with an assist. He may also start on Tuesday night.
  • Moussa Djenepo and Theo Walcott are options on the wing if Ralph Hasenhuttl freshens things up.
  • Rodrigo will push to start this one after scoring a brace from the bench in Leeds’ 4-0 win away to Burnley at the weekend.
  • Liam Cooper could also return to the starting XI after only making the bench against Burnley.
  • Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed Robin Koch and Mateusz Klich will be given the final two games off so they can be fully fit for Euro 2020. Neither are injured.
  • Pablo Hernandez will be assessed but should at least make the squad here.

  • Lewis Dunk and Neal Maupay complete two match bans on Tuesday night for Brighton.
  • Adam Lallana recovered from injury in time to feature from the bench against West Ham at the weekend.
  • Percy Tau made a really positive impact from the bench against the Hammers, setting up Danny Welbeck for their opener, and he will hope to start here.
  • No risks are expected to be taken with Kevin De Bruyne ahead of the Champions League final though you imagine he will feature in at least one of their last two.
  • Sergio Aguero will more than likely be saved to start Manchester City’s last game of the season, which is at home and will be in front of their supporters for the last time before he leaves this summer.
  • Pep Guardiola loves to rotate his attackers but how can you deny Ferran Torres another start after his stunning hat-trick against Newcastle on Friday.
  • Scott Carson made his first Premier League appearance in a decade in City’s victory over Newcastle but Guardiola has confirmed Ederson will return in goal for the last two league games of the season.

  • Thomas Tuchel will consider changes from the side that lost to Leicester in Saturday’s FA Cup final.
  • Edouard Mendy, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic could all return to the starting XI here.
  • Timo Werner could drop out of the side on Tuesday after a really poor display at Wembley.
  • Reece James played as a third centre-back at Wembley, with Cesar Azpilicueta at wing-back, and we could see a repeat of that here up against Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.
  • Thiago Silva has racked up a lot of minutes in quick succession but Chelsea simply have to win this one so it’s likely he will be rested on the last day of the season.
  • After a large spell on the sidelines, Mateo Kovacic may only make the bench on Tuesday.
  • Jonny Evans is unlikely to play in either of Leicester’s last two games of the season after coming off injured in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
  • James Maddison should replace Ayoze Perez in the starting line-up on Tuesday, with Marc Albrighton also pushing to start.
  • Luke Thomas is enjoying a fine run in the side and that looks set to continue here unless Brendan Rodgers tinkers at the back.
  • Wes Morgan came off the bench on Saturday to make his first appearance since December but that will be his last for the club.
