Manchester United vs Fulham prediction and preview
In what is essentially a dead rubber, Manchester United host Fulham in their final home of the Premier League season. The Red Devils have already sealed Champions League qualification and are four points clear of the third-placed Leicester, meaning three points on Tuesday will confirm their status are runners up. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have hit a rough patch with back to back home defeats against Leicester and Liverpool, making it six defeats at Old Trafford this season. Nonetheless, Man United willl hope to get back to winning ways as they build up to the Europa League final set for next week.

Manchester United will welcome supporters back to Old Trafford this evening in their final home game of the 2020/21 season.
United host Fulham this evening (6pm kick off, UK time), knowing a victory will confirm a second place finish in this year’s Premier League. A draw may be enough, depending on what happens when Chelsea and Leicester meet in the later kick off.
Anthony Martial and Daniel James may both return to the United squad having been out with injuries, although Harry Maguire is still sidelined with an ankle problem.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen for his side to return to form in front of their own fans, while having one eye on the upcoming Europa League final against Villarreal on May 26th. There is likely to be an anti-Glazer protest from some inside the stadium this evening — after demonstrations before the recent Liverpool match.
Meanwhile, Fulham have already been relegated from the Premier League and will return to the Championship next season. Fulham are yet to win a game since their win over Liverpool in March, and have recorded only five wins this campaign. Scott Parker’s side have lost their last three games, but will hope to end the season on a high, with a win at Old Trafford in front of the supporters. However, the Red Devils will be favourites and are likely to clinch three points on Tuesday.
