Red Devils gaffer, Erik ten Hag is expected to make several modifications to the starting lineup for their upcoming Premier League match against Fulham at the Theatre of Dreams.
Following their 4-1 victory over Frank Lampard's men, which secured a top-four position on the English top-flight standings, the Manchester-based outfit will be looking to secure a higher finish than the Magpies, who currently sit in third place.
Unfortunately, the win against the West Londoners came at a cost, as Brazil international, Antony sustained a severe ankle injury, and Luke Shaw experienced a back issue.
While the Englishman's injury is believed to be minor, it is unlikely that he will be risked for the upcoming match. Antony's availability, on the other hand, is uncertain as the club assesses the extent of the Brazilian's injury.
Lisandro Martinez, Donny van de Beek, and Marcel Sabitzer are expected to play no part. Additionally, Tom Heaton is doubtful due to an ankle issue.
Considering the upcoming FA Cup final against the Citizens, the Dutch tactician is expected to rotate his squad. Players such as Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia, and Scott McTominay could be included in the first eleven.
The match against Fulham might potentially be Maguire's last appearance at Old Trafford, as there have been significant transfer speculation surrounding the club captain.
Marcus Rashford, the team's leading goalscorer, made a substitute appearance in the previous match after recovering from injury and illness. He is likely to be included in the starting lineup for Sunday's game.
