David De Gea starts in goal for Manchester United against Fulham, with Dean Henderson relegated to the bench.

Henderson was in poor form for United’s 4-2 defeat to Liverpool last Thursday and is a substitute against Scott Parker’s already-relegated Fulham, with De Gea seemingly restored to No1 goalkeeper.

Elsewhere for United, Axel Tuanzebe gets the nod ahead of Eric Bailly at centre-back with Harry Maguire out injured.

Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani lead the attack, with Marcus Rashford forced to settle for a place on the bench given Greenwood’s impressive run of form.

Anthony Martial and Dan James had been expected to be in contention, but neither forward makes the bench here.

Man Utd: de Gea, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Pogba, Cavani

Subs: Bailly, Mata, Rashford, Diallo, Henderson, Alex Telles, Matic, Williams, van de Beek

Fulham: Areola, Ream, Adarabioyo, Bryan, Carvalho, Reed, Lemina, Reid, Lookman, Zambo, Ivan Cavaleiro

Subs: Tete, Hector, Odoi, Andersen, Rodak, Loftus-Cheek, Onomah, Maja, Aina

Referee: Lee Mason
