Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could recall Eric Bailly for Manchester United's game at Fulham tonight.

The defender has been in good form having come in for Victor Lindelof at the heart of defence.

The Swede returned for the trip to Liverpool on Sunday though and helped keep the Reds attack quiet.

Bailly could be joined in the back four by Alex Telles, who saw Luke Shaw start ahead of him at Anfield.

The United defence has been a major strength in recent weeks but Fulham have caused problems for the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea recently.

Nemanja Matic was left out on Sunday but may reprise his role at the base of the midfield.

Paul Pogba has been used in more of a wide role to give him more freedom in recent weeks, but with Mason Greenwood in contention to start he may be asked to play centrally.

The young forward will team up with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford if he plays.

Bruno Fernandes was disappointing in United's goalless draw at Liverpool and has copped criticism, but will again be the man expected to spark his side's attack.

His manager has leapt to his defence and maintained that there are no fears over the Portuguese's energy levels.

"His form is very good," Solskjaer maintained. "He was just voted Player of the Month! He's not tired, no, no chance.

"He is one of the players that runs and covers the ground in every single game, very good at recovering, very good at recharging his batteries."

The United boss also confirmed that more players could leave Old Trafford this month with the transfer window still having two weeks to run.

He continued: “I don’t wanna go into individuals but we can probably allow one or two more to go out but the strength we have is we have a deep squad, strength in depth.

"We don’t wanna give our advantage away by easing off on our players, I can’t give you a better answer than that.”

Solskjaer won his only visit to Craven Cottage as boss – a 3-0 success back in February 2019 when he was still in interim charge.

United will be looking to bounce back to winning ways having handed the initiative to rivals Manchester City with their recent draw.
