Manchester United tool to build on their point tally towards the end of the season as they face off against relegated Fulham. The match schedules for Tuesday at Old Trafford with kickoff at 8 pm.
The Red Devils experienced a dip in form in their last two league outings with Leicester City and Liverpool. Similarly, their opponents are on a three-game losing streak that saw their relegation to the Championship in the 2021-22 campaign.
