Man Utd team news leaks as Ten Hag prepares for Fulham clash
Manchester United squad news leaked out early ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Fulham. Erik ten Hag will be hoping to guide his team to victory when the match begins at Craven Cottage. And Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and Anthony Martial are reportedly set to start the game as the Red Devils look to boost their chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

It’s United’s last game before the World Cup kicks off in Qatar, with Ten Hag hopeful the Red Devils end the first half of the season on a positive note.
Y Twitter User @CS45Sam, who has leaked some of the club’s starting XIs so far this season, has now delivered some early team news.
Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw are stated to be ready to start the game.

Speaking about the 26-year-old ahead of the west London competition, Ten Hag admitted he was frustrated with the attacker’s injury problems this term.
“Of course we looked at that and he’s looking at that, what can we do to change that?” he said.
“We take some steps to do that, so it’s always when you have injuries and illnesses, there’s a reason.
“Sometimes it’s also bad luck and he was very good and then the last 10 minutes at Atlético de Madrid, he got injured and that put him back.
“I am very happy that he is back now and that we can manage him and that he stays fit because he is an important part of the team.

“He plays very well in many aspects of football, I am happy about that, except for his availability.
“It’s pretty clear in the way I play, I like the guy that Anthony Martial is because he can hold the ball, he’s a target, he can link, he can also run back, he has speed, he can finish and he’s a good presser.”
And Ten Hag has also suggested that he is worried about his current group of strikers.
Goals have dried up for Ronaldo, who has netted just three times since the start of the season.
And Antony and Jadon Sancho have also had some minor fitness issues.

Ten Hag has now decided to go public with his concerns, admitting he feels United need more if they are to evolve.
“On the front lines, player availability is a concern for us,” he said.
“We had so many games, like Newcastle United, Marcus Rashford sick.
“We had to play some other games where we have to improvise to build a proper offensive line.
“If you can’t do that, then it’s really hard to get into the top four, if you don’t have the players to build a proper offensive line.”
