How to watch and follow United v Fulham

Friday 17 March 2023 14:37

Manchester United are back at Old Trafford on Sunday, with the Reds set to take on Fulham, as we bid to book our place in the semi-finals of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

The 16:30 GMT kick-off follows on from victory at Real Betis on Thursday, which saw us safely progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.

Marcus Rashford's second-half goal was the only difference between the two sides, as we ran out 1-0 winners in Seville, claiming a 5-1 aggregate success over La Liga's fifth-placed team.

However, our attention now quickly turns to another cup competition, with fellow Premier League side Fulham coming to town for the sixth-round tie.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the Cottagers' arrival in M16...

Midfielder Casemiro will miss the tie, as he begins his four-match suspension after being sent off against Southampton in the Premier League last weekend. Anthony Martial has been ruled out by Erik ten Hag, while Antony is a doubt after missing the trip to Seville.

Alejandro Garnacho will also miss out after suffering an ankle-ligament injury in a tackle with Kyle Walker-Peters last weekend.

Victor Lindelof returned to play the final 15 minutes in Seville, after overcoming a recent bout of illness. Marcel Sabitzer also came back into the side, replacing Fred on the hour mark at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are longer-term absentees.

Erik's press conference: Part one


The manager's media briefing covered Casemiro, Fulham and Marcus Rashford among other hot topics.


Fulham are enjoying quite the return to the Premier League this season, sitting ninth in the table and well clear of any prospect of relegation. Top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic has found the net 11 times in all competitions and will be one to watch for United's backline this weekend.

Returning midfielder Andreas Pereira has also enjoyed a strong start life at Craven Cottage, following his transfer from the Reds back in the summer. The 27-year-old has missed just one game for Silva's side this season, making 31 appearances in total, scoring three goals and laying on a further six assists in all competitions.


Ten Hag's men have played at home in every round so far, beating Everton, Reading and West Ham, all by the same scoreline of 3-1. Antony, Marcus Rashford and a Conor Coady own goal helped us on our way past Everton and into the fourth round, where we faced Paul Ince's Reading.

Another convincing display soon followed, with Brazilian duo Casemiro (2) and Fred on the scoresheet back at the end of January against the Royals. Our most recent FA Cup showing was another enjoyable evening for all involved, as the Reds netted three times in the final 15 minutes to turn the tie on its head.

Sunday's visitors made it to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010 by eliminating Hull City, Sunderland, via a replay, and Leeds United.
