United can look back on a decent head-to-head record against their next opponents, having won eight and lost none of their last 10 duels with Fulham, with the Cottagers winning just three of the last 27 league encounters between the teams.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spelt out to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward his vision of how Manchester United should look as he continues his push to land the manager's job on a permanent basis.

United dropped their first points under Solskjaer when they drew 2-2 vs Burnley last week and this weekend they had to earn a hard-fought 1-0 win over Leicester City.

"He deserves it at the moment", Ranieri said. He's shown all the players are with him.
