MU vs Fulham FA Cup Quarter Final Prediction Red Devils Ambition Hunt for Trophies

Manchester United (MU) is scheduled to meet Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final match at the Old Trafford Stadium on Sunday (19/3/2023) at 23.30 WIB. (AFP/Jorge Guerrero), Jakarta Manchester United (MU) will host Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final match. The duo of teams will meet at Old Trafford Stadium on Sunday (19/3/2023) at 23.30 WIB.

Erik ten Hag's team have so far shown promising performances in various competitions. Marcus Rashford and his friends have just come out as champions of the League Cup, another name for the 2022/2023 Carabao Cup.

They beat Newcastle United's resistance through two goals without reply scored by Casemiro and Rashford at the end of February.

Man Utd's path was also fairly smooth in the Europa League arena. The Red Devils managed to secure a ticket to the quarter-finals after defeating Real Betis through a 5-1 aggregate win in the round of 16.

Ten Hag's troops will be awaited by Sevilla in the last eight. The Premier League giants are scheduled to have a first leg duel with the Spanish side on April 14 2023, followed by a second leg match a week later.

Meanwhile in the Premier League championship, MU's record is also not too bad. Even though they have gone through two consecutive matches without a win, the Red Devils remain third in the standings with 50 points from 26 matches.

MU is one number ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, who have played 28 matches since the start of the season. Rashford and colleagues need at least 11 additional points if they want to overtake rivals Manchester City in second place.

Reflecting on the Red Devils' performance record under Ten Hag's tutelage, it doesn't seem like it's going to be difficult for them to get past Fulham's challenge. Moreover, the club that also plays in the Premier League has never beaten Manchester United this season.

It is known that Fulham hosted the Red Devils in the Premier League match last November. At that time, the home team were humiliated at home after losing 1-2 at the hands of Man Utd.

MU now only has to repeat a similar success if you want to advance to the top four. Victory over Fulham in the quarter-finals will increase the hopes of the Red Devils to add to their trophy collection in the 2022/2023 championship.

MU (Manchester United) player video news, Lisandro Martinez, reveals that his team wants to win all the titles, Wednesday (15/3/2023).

Squad Conditions Ahead of the MU vs Fulham Duel

Unfortunately, the duel against Fulham this time will be a little tough for MU. The Red Devils were forced to compete without their favorite midfielder, Casemiro, after the player was shown a red card in the match against Southampton last week.

Ten Hag's replacement midfield players, namely Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen, are also still injured. These conditions forced the bald-headed supervisor to rack his brain to find the right squad composition to beat his potential opponents.

A number of other names are also reported to be absent from MU. Alejandro Garnacho has an ankle injury which has forced him out of action. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial remains a doubt due to a hip problem he is suffering from.

As for the Fulham camp, Marco Silva will actually add new ammunition. Penggawanya, Palhinha, could return to strengthen The Cottagers after serving a two-match suspension due to accumulation of yellow cards.

SportsMole also reports Cedric Soares could return to his squad's side. However, names like Shane Duffy, Neeskens Kebano and Layvin Kurzawa seem to be hampered by fitness problems.
