Manchester United’s stuttering form has seen them fail to make significant ground on the top four and they currently sit in seventh, seven points from fourth placed Liverpool. Former United favourite Rene Meulensteen returns to Old Trafford for the first time as a manager, but sees his side bottom of the table and low following their FA Cup defeat to Sheffield United last time out.

Despite announcing his impending departure from Old Trafford, Nemanja Vidic will return to the fold following suspension. Phil Jones has also recovered from a concussion suffered last weekend, but Jonny Evans is unavailable.
Johnny Heitinga and Lewis Holtby could start for Fulham following their recent moves, but Meulensteen may be less certain about fellow new signing Kostas Mitroglou. The Greek striker is more likely to start from the bench.
