Manchester United XI vs Fulham: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for FA Cup game today
Manchester United have named a strong side as they host Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-finals as Casemiro begins his four-game suspension.
The influential Brazilian midfielder was sent off for the second time this season during last week’s frustrating goalless home Premier League draw with relegation strugglers Southampton and will now miss four crucial games for Erik ten Hag’s side. Marcel Sabitzer and Scott McTominay start in midfield in his absence.
