Manchester United will host Fulham on Sunday in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. The Red Devils mustered a 3-1 comeback victory over West Ham United in the fifth round while the Cottagers beat Leeds United 2-0 to progress.
Erik ten Hag’s men have suffered a bit due to their hectic schedule in recent weeks but that didn’t stop them from dispatching Real Betis rather comfortably in the Round of 16 of the Europa League.
Marcus Rashford’s thunderous strike from range gave them a 1-0 win in the second leg on Thursday and United won the tie 5-1 on aggregate.
Manchester United last made it to the semi-finals of the FA Cup in the 2019-20 season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. A win over Marco Silva’s side will need to be earned with hard work and that is unlikely to be lost on Ten Hag, who has done ever so well in cup competitions this term.
A domestic cup double is well within their sights after winning the Carabao Cup, but playing against an efficient Fulham side without Casemiro could prove to be difficult.
Joao Palhinha’s return is a massive boost for Fulham. Casemiro’s absence will be a huge blow for Manchester United. But the Cottagers’ defensive problems could be exploited by the Red Devils, who have plenty of quality all over the pitch.
It won’t be straightforward but Ten Hag’s men are likely to progress to the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Fulham’s expense.

We say: Manchester United 2-0 Fulham
For his wealth of goalscoring exploits in the Premier League and Championship, Fulham talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic is yet to open his account in the FA Cup, and morale will not be at its peak following two crushing London derby losses.
The return of Palhinha to the midfield should help to alleviate some of the Cottagers’ recent defensive frailties, but even with Casemiro helplessly watching on, Man United should have no trouble booking their spot in the final four at the Old Trafford fortress.
