Manchester United return to Old Trafford as they host Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, with Omari Forson starting.

Erik ten Hag has opted to replace Rasmus Højlund with academy graduate Omari Forson after the Danish striker was ruled out with a two-to-three-week muscle injury.

Manchester United are hosting Fulham at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, with the home side having won four Premier League fixtures in a row, climbing themselves to within five points of the top four.

“We have our options in our squad. Of course, it’s a setback for Rasmus,” Ten Hag told club media when asked about how Højlund can be replaced.

“It’s a setback for us that we can’t keep this process going from the three in the frontline. They were really complementary to each other lately, but I think also we can put out other frontlines who can become complementary and co-operate well together and create chances. As I said, they are all capable of scoring goals.”

The starting XIs for both teams have been confirmed below.
